Glenlossie Distillery was established in 1876 in the Speyside area by John Duff, the former manager of Glendronach Distillery. After a number of transfers and mergers, it is now part of the Diageo Group. The distillery is equipped with three pairs of stills and purifiers to produce a fine and pure whisky. As most of the original spirit is used as a base for Haig's blended whiskies, the only single malt whisky bottled at the distillery is the 10 year old Flora & Fauna, which was produced in 1990, and all other whiskies are bottled by independent bottlers.

The Glenlossie 10 Years from the Single Malts of Scotland range was specially bottled for the Hong Kong Whisky Festival 2020. On the nose, ripe peaches, berries and a light hint of bubblegum, rhubarb and raspberry jam and apple pie with vanilla. Heather, hay and sugared almond. Creamy and oily. On the palate, sweet and spicy. Citrus candy, fruit cake, hints of pineapple, yellow plums, more peppery and gingery hints. Vanilla ice cream and simple malty notes in the background. At the finish, medium, more nutty, with baking spice and breakfast cereals.
