Take a trip deep into the Scottish glens or venture out towards the rugged coast where you are sure to stumble across one of our treasured distilleries. Here, find out for yourself just why we call whisky the ‘water of life’.
Many of these traditionally Scottish distilleries will let you pay an informal visit; some may ask you to make an appointment. Others offer regular guided tour led by experienced distillers. Tours range from basic to detailed - suitable for any enthusiast. Best of all, some distilleries offer tutored tastings.
Many whiskies continue to be religiously handcrafted using the same historic skill of distillation. Visiting our distilleries is a great way to get a feel for the unique distillation process as well as a real feel for our rich culture and history (can you believe that some of the most precious casks are kept in vaults under lock and key?). And if you’re lucky, there’s even the option to bottle the essence of this place straight from a specially selected cask – an experience not to be sniffed at!
Whenever or wherever you chose to visit won’t leave disappointed after a guided tour or tutored
