The Glenburgie distillery was founded in 1810 by William Paul with another name which was Kilnflat.

The  Glenburgie distillery is located in Speyside and for the production of its whisky Glenburgie distillery uses the water of local springs of Speyside area.

Until 1958 the Glenburgie distillery used its floor malting but today the  Glenburgie distillery buys the malt form an industrial site.

The whisky of Glenburgie distillery matured in four dunnage, two racked and two palletised warehouses and the majority of the production is filled in bourbon casks.

For slightly more than two decades a couple of very special stills were operative at  Glenburgie distillery.
Instead of the traditional swan neck, the so called Lomond stills had columns with a number of plates inside.
The plates were adjustable and the thinking was to able to produce different kinds of newmake from the same still.

The idea however, was short-lived, but the whisky that the Lomond stills produced got its own name, Glencraig, named after the former product director of Ballantines, william craig.
