Glen Elgin Distillery was funded in 1898 and three years later went out of business.
In 1930 DCL took over and granted distilling license to White Horse Distillers, consequently Glen Elgin whisky has been closely associated with the White Horse brand ever since. After 2012 modernization the distilling capacity increased to 2.7 million liters of spirit per annum. The 12 years old single malt was introduced in 2003 and remains the only core expression from the distillery. Whisky was aged in ex-bourbon casks with a little addition of sherry casks.
