Product Notes
Roseisle Distillery, inaugurated in 2010 on Scotland’s Moray Coast near Elgin, represents a significant evolution in Scotch whisky production. Funded by Diageo, one of the world’s leading spirits companies, Roseisle merges traditional whisky-making practices with cutting-edge technology, boasting a production capacity of around 10 million litres annually. Designed with sustainability at its core, the distillery features advanced energy-efficient systems, including biomass boilers, underscoring a commitment to environmental responsibility. Although primarily serving Diageo’s blended Scotch portfolios, such as Johnnie Walker, by providing a variety of whisky styles, Roseisle is a modern facility focused on innovation and efficiency, typically not open to public tours, highlighting its role as a cornerstone of modern Scotch whisky production rather than a visitor attraction.
