The Glenrothes distillery was established in  1879. In 1896 the distillery was expanded due to the demand from blenders for this prized malt whisky. Exactly 100 years after opening, new stills were installed, in 1979.

Since opening, Glenrothes has been one of the most sought after whiskies on Speyside. The structure, flavour and body of The Glenrothes makes it an excellent ‘top dresser’ or quality enhancer found at the heart of some of the world’s finest blends such as Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse. Many expert distillers and blenders claim that it produces one of the finest and most accomplished of malt whiskies.

The distillery is not open to the general public although sometimes special guests are invited to Rothes House and to visit the distillery.
