Water: The five sources

At The Glenrothes we owe an important debt to nature. The pure spring waters that surround us are the foundation of our spirit and the local streams that run through our estate are essential for cooling and maintenance of our production processes.

We call it ‘Uisge Beatha’, our water of life. Every dram carries the precious legacy of this elemental liquid and because we know exactly where our water comes from, we can ensure that every single drop contributes to the impeccable character of our whisky.
