About Glen Keith
Originating as an experimental distillery to produce Scotch for Chivas Brothers’ blends, Glen Keith released its first official bottling, a 10 year old, in 1994. It was mothballed in 1999, and then reopened in 2013 primarily to produce whisky for blends once again. However, the Glen Keith single malt is released through independent bottlings and sparing official releases.

Glen Keith distillery is located in Keith, alongside Glenfiddich and Covalmore.
