For lovers of fine Scotch whisky, a visit to Scotland would not be complete without visiting a distillery that produces fine malt whiskey.

Travel to the Glengoyne distillery (or equivalent), which has been working continuously for over 150 years. Its traditional methods have been handed down from generation to generation to produce a distinctive malt whisky, enjoyed by a growing number of connoisseurs. The essence of its flavor has been preserved for decades by using air dried barley, rather than barley dried. The result is a more subtle, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavors, freely express themselves.

An expert guide will introduce you to the natural elements and the time-honored tradition. You’ll learn all stages of the whisky making process from mashing and fermenting, to distilling and maturing. See the gleaming copper stills, casks of American oak, operating equipment and methods used in the various stages of processing fine malt whisky. Following a tour of the distillery, you'll be treated to a sampling of a `wee dram`. You’ll also have some time to browse in the shop which sells a wide variety of whiskies and gifts.

Need to Know:

Note: Should the Glengoyne distillery not be available, another well-known distillery will be visited.
