Glenburgie was founded in 1810 under the name 'Kilnflat' by William Paul.
As with some of its other Speyside neighbours such as Glenallachie and Glen Spey, sourcing official bottlings of the Benromach-located distillery is a difficult task. The first real official bottling from the distillery, a 15 year old, was only released in 2002. This 15 year old remains the only official bottling released by the distillery. There have been a handful of independent bottlings, including a 10 year old bottled by Gordon & MacPhail, and a couple of older releases, including a 20 and 27 year old, which have mainly been bottled by Signatory Vintage.
Over the years, the Glenburgie distillery has mainly been used to produce single malt to be used in blends. The spirit produced at the site is a major component in Ballantine’s blended whisky, as well as Old Smuggler. The since-discontinued Glencraig single malt was part of an experiment with different stills at the distillery.
