The Glenrothes is an award-winning single malt Scotch whisky from the town of Rothes in Speyside, Scotland’s Scotch whisky making heartland. The distillery has a storied history that dates back to 1879 — that is how long it has been crafting one of the world’s finest whisky.

Situated adjacent to the Burn of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland, The Glenrothes Distillery was founded 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 the capacity of the distillery started a fire that consumed much of the distillery's infrastructure and equipment. Twenty-five years later, a fire at 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 of harmony and tranquility.

A combination of many factors, including slow distillation in tall copper stills and maturation in exceptional oak casks deliver expressions with their own unique personalities, underpinned by distinctive the hallmark characteristics of the distillery — ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and an exquisite spicy finish all encased in the creamiest of textures and with a complex and well-poised balance.

Long known for their vintage statements, this new range of whiskies is a departure from that tradition. These new age statement whiskies have been released as a part of their core line up. The unrivaled quality and extraordinary character of the distillery remain the same.

The Glenrothes Whisky Maker's Cut is inspired and shaped by the hand of Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, using only the finest first-fill sherry seasoned casks and bottled at his preferred strength of 48.8% ABV.
