The home of 'The Edinburgh Malt' is located in the rolling farmland of East Lothian and houses an excellent exhibition in the listed red brick buildings. Distilling (mostly illegal) was taking place here long before the skills of crop rotation were known; in 1777 Edinburgh housed perhaps four hundred illicit distilleries. When the law was changed to permit smaller licensed distilleries, many farmers took out licenses. By the time Glenkinchie was founded in 1837, 115 licensed distilleries were recorded in the Lowlands, though their products would probably not pass muster today!
