Day 1 This tour starts in Perth (or Glasgow or Edinburgh) where we will meet you and drive north to the Victorian town of Pitlochry to visit Edradour Distillery, a favourite of ours, we know the owner personally. A couple of drams are included on the tour and there is an excellent bar to purchase extra. Time for lunch at The House of Bruar, the “Harrods of the north”, (own expense). From here up to Speyside and the family owned Glenfarclas Distillery. After your tour, relax with a couple of drams. From here we travel a short distance to the Highlander Inn, Craigellachie, there’s over 400 whiskies behind the bar – a great place to chill out.
Day 2 We travel to Glenallachie, recently opened. Then a wee donder along to the Speyside Cooperage to see how casks are made/repaired, a really interesting tour. Time for lunch at Glenfiddich Distillery. Then we visit the huge new Macallan Distillery and sample drams – we wonder if you will love it or hate it, it’s huge! Overnight at the Highlander again.
Day 3 With a short drive, we visit Glen Moray Distillery, a real favourite of ours, their drams are excellent value for money. Then we call into Gordon & MacPhail whisky shop/wine/deli. Time for lunch in at castle hotel, in Huntly – they too have an excellent bar. Then a drive to Knockdhu Distillery for a very unusual distillery experience – honestly this is a totally unique place, with beautiful drams to finish. Your final night at The Highlander.
Day 4 Heading south we drop into Dalwhinnie Distillery for a flight of whisky, no tour here, just sample a few drams with chocolates.
