Beneath the hill of Dungoyne, in a tranquil wooded glen on the western edge of the Campsie Fells close to Loch Lomond lies Glengoyne distillery. It captures the soft air and burn water that flows into Loch Lomond to create a highly individual, unpeated malt. The Distillery takes its name from the place, 'Glen Guin' or Glen of the Wild Geese, and sits at the foot of a small waterfall tumbling from the volcanic plug of Dungoyne Hill.For more than 150 years, Glengoyne distillery has been working continuously. Its traditional methods have been handed down from generation to generation. In the early days Glengoyne was not alone in producing whisky in the southern Highlands. Indeed, one 19th-century historian recorded that smoke from 18 stills could be seen each morning, and the illicit spirit was smuggled the 15 miles into Glasgow by girls carrying tin pots under the hoops of their skirts.
Not a single negative note from first to last'.

What distinguishes Glengoyne is that the distillery uses only specially selected unpeated malted barley i.e. barley which is malted using air from a natural fire and not a peat fire. The dried malted barley is mixed with water, and yeast is added to convert the malt sugars into alcohol.After a fermentation period of around 40 hours, the liquid is distilled to produce the spirit that will mature slowly in oak casks. This method ensures that the other elements of Glengoyne Malt Whisky are allowed to express themselves more fully - the water, ripened barley, the oak and sherry of the cask, and some say the air of the place. The Highland Line, which notionally divided Highland from Lowland Scotland runs through the distillery grounds. Glengoyne is the southernmost Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky which results in a fresher lighter taste due to the milder natural climate in the area.
