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.
Leaving Benromach we continue into the heart of Speyside where we visit and tour one famous Speyside distillery - you can choose from either Glenlivet or Glenfiddich. We take a standard tour at your choice of distillery.

Between our distillery tours we have a light lunch at either Glenlivet or Glenfiddich distillery cafe (depending on your afternoon tour choice). Leaving Speyside we travel back through wonderful scenery and enjoy the stunning views of the East Highlands on our return to Inverness.
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).
