Glen Elgin Distillery was the last distillery to be built during the boom years of the 1890s. The architect, Charles Doig, stated it would be the last one built in Speyside for 50 years. His prediction was remarkably accurate with Tormore
being the next distillery built, in 1958. Until the 1950s the distillery was entirely operated and lit by paraffin. All machinery was driven by a paraffin engine and a water turbine. It was a full time job to keep the paraffin lights burning.
Today, the distillery still proudly depicts the White Horse emblem and is part of Diageos Elgin Group, along with Linkwood, Glenlossie and Mannochmore.
The whisky is still a key component of White Horse blended whisky.
