The Kininvie Distillery, one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland, began production on 4 July 1990.
The distillery was built on the grounds of the Balvenie distillery, and consisted only of a still house. Whilst featuring computer controlled distillation, it lacks its own mash house. Mash houses are responsible for producing the liquid needed for fermentation in the washbacks, so the liquid used by the Kininvie Distillery in their washbacks was piped from the Balvenie distillery some 200 metres away.
The distillery operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet demand.
Almost all of its whisky was used in the blended whiskies of William Grant & Sons. Kininvie was closed in 2010, when Grant's Ailsa Bay distillery became operational.

Nose: Candied oranges and creamy vanilla , honey and some pineapple bits too. Canned Stewed peaches in syrup and , coconut and toasted oak with a touch of banana and sticky rice.
Palate: Vanilla and white pepper up front , then sweet juicy fruit with more custard , nuts and sweet spicy wood. Seville orange and a hint of raisin and cocoa, ginger powder and cinnamon bark.
Finish: Lovely vanilla ice cream cinnamon , buttery and drying. Milk chocolate.
Again, lovely stuff, I sense this is even creamier and lighter than Batch #2, and it’s a very good whisky indeed. If you’re considering a dram for a hot summer day, this might well be it!
