Despie being added to Diageo's Classic Malts, Glen Elgin is not open to visitors, but most of the buildings are on public roads, so you can see what's going on from outside at least. I managed to get inside during a special tour during the Spirit of Speyside Festival.
Distillery was designed by Charles Chree Doig and was the last built in the 19th century. Building had started before the Pattison scam hit the whisky industry, and the distillery wasn't finished until 1900. Doig predicted that no further distilleries would be built in Scotland for at least 50 years - he was proved correct - the next one was Tormore in 1957.
The distillery retains worm tubs for cooling the distilled spirit rather than the more common condensers.
