Speyside Whisky Contrast Tour from Inverness

Speyside Whisky Contrast Tour

A great contrast tour where you discover a local 'hidden gem' - Benromach - along with exploring a famous Speyside whisky distillery.

Our whisky contrast tour departs from Inverness as we journey to Benromach - Speyside's smallest distillery. This 'hidden gem' is locally owned and has just three distillers handcrafting their single malt whisky. After a distillery tour you enjoy a tutored tasting of four Benromach malts.

River Spey, Scottish Highlands


Glenlivet is closed from early November to mid-March.

During the summer months most distilleries have a ‘silent season’ when there is no whisky production for a number of weeks. Distillery tours still operate as normal but without production in the background. 2017 dates for silent season for Glenlivet were from early June to late July; for Glenfiddich were from mid-June to early July; and for Benromach were most of October. Please note that 2018 dates should be relatively similar but are subject to change by the distilleries.

Please note that this tour is not suitable for children (under 18s).
