When it comes to whisky distilleries, Scotland boasts an embarrassment of riches. With a total of five distinguished whisky producing regions, the toughest decision is choosing which to visit. Tours Scotland makes the choice easier by providing guidance and recommendations. You will not miss any of the action with Duncan’s Whisky Tours Scotland.
Distilleries may lie thick on the ground in Scotland, but that does not mean that they are not distinctive and unique. To appreciate the country’s nationall drink, you have to visit at least one or two distilleries. This gives you the opportunity to observe variances in the distilling process and to sample several drams. You will come away with a deeper appreciation after enjoying one of our Whisky Tours Scotland.
The Glenfiddich Distillery is one of Scotland’s best. It is found in the midst of the Highland in the city of Dufftown. Visitors may choose from several tour experiences ranging from one and a half hours in length through to three and a half hours. The basic Explorer Tour introduces the distillery and one of the warehouses. Participants enjoy four different drams at the end. The New Pioneer experience is tailored for the whisky connoisseur and requires nearly half a day. Guests get to bottle whisky and take part in a tasting master class among other extraordinary experiences.
The award-winning Glenlivet Distillery offers an unparalleled glimpse into the organisation’s history and the art of whisky making. Free tours are ideal for the budget conscious traveller, but others might choose one of the paid experiences, especially since these often include the opportunity to sample extremely rare old whiskies. Glenlivet also boasts a particularly well done visitors centre complete with museum and gift shop. It is the perfect spot to pick up a memento.
The Lagavulin Distillery has operated on the Isle of Islay since 1742. Much of its business was conducted illegally then, but things are much more on the up-and-up today. Many travellers make a point of stopping at Lagavulin when they go to view the Dunyveg Castle ruins. The outing makes for a spectacular day of whisky tasting and history. A variety of tours are available at this welcoming distillery.
Tours Scotland offers a full programme of whisky tasting. Whether you choose to join a Whisky Tours Scotland outing or decide to go it alone, you will come away from the tour with a better understanding of the nation’s rich culture.
