Situated adjacent to the Burn of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland, The Glenrothes Distillery was founded by in 1879 by James Stuart, who had previously been employed at The Macallan Distillery. The distillery's history is marred by tragedy — in 1897, construction workers who were attempting to expand its capacity started a fire that consumed much of the distillery's equipment and infrastructure. Twenty-five years later, a fire in the distillery's original warehouse caused the loss of 200,000 gallons of maturing whisky. Despite having lost ten copper-pot stills in various accidents since its founding, the Glenrothes Distillery is now a picture tranquility.

Glenrothes Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, ripe Scottish barley, which is malted and fermented using water sourced from the Ardcanny and Brauchhill springs (the springs are situated adjacent to the distillery). Following fermentation, the grains are twice distilled through Glenrothes' copper-pot stills. The stills, which were designed and fashioned to be exact replicas of the original stills installed in 1879, are incredibly tall and uniquely shaped, which contributes to the overall light and sweet flavor of the whisky. After distillation, The Glenrothes' still remove the heads and tails of the distillate and preserve only the ""hearts"" for maturation (the hearts comprise less than 20% of the entire distillate).

Unlike other Scottish distilleries that bottle their whiskies with an age statement, The Glenrothes Distillery bottles its whisky with a vintage statement. This method of bottling, which emphasizes maturity rather than age, allows each expression of Glenrothes Single Malt Whisky to have its own unique characteristics and personality without being encumbered by its ancestors.

This whisky is a combination of 10 different vintages from 1989 to 1997 and aged in a variety of casks to create a masterful balance of young and old. The oldest component imparts a mellow oaky character with notes of dried fruit and soft, mature, sweet notes of vanilla. The more youthful components add vibrant lemon citrus, creating a crisp, refreshing flavor.
