Speyside Whisky Tasting Tour

Speyside Whisky Tasting Tour

Visit four great Speyside whisky distilleries for tastings!

Our Speyside whisky tasting tour begins from Inverness with a visit to Benromach where you experience a tutored tasting of Benromach malts. It is then on to Glenfiddich where you enjoy a light lunch at the distillery cafe including tastings from their Malt Bar. The afternoon takes us to the stunning Macallan distillery for tastings and a look at their fabulous whisky archive. Our final distillery of the day is Cardhu (also the spiritual home of Jonnie Walker in Speyside) to explore their great range of malt whiskies.

Leaving Speyside we travel back through wonderful scenery and enjoy the stunning views of the East Highlands on our return to Inverness.

Tour Option 1 - Distillery tour at Benromach
Benromach tastings can be changed to a distillery tour and tastings. The price for a tour at Benromach is £8 per person including 2 tasting drams. We slightly reduce the time at the other distilleries to allow for this option. Please request in advance as the distillery tour has to be pre-booked.

Tour Option 2 - Red Door Gin tour at Benromach
Benromach whisky tastings (or tour) can be changed to a Red Door Gin tour and tasting (for all or just some of your group while others take the whisky tour). The price for a Red Door Gin tour at Benromach is £10 per person including a signature Red Door tasting. We slightly reduce the time at the other distilleries to allow for this option and start later at 9.30am from Inverness. Please request in advance as the gin tour has to be pre-booked and is not available every day.

Tour Notes
This tour is a tastings whisky tour and only offers the option of a distillery tour at Benromach and tastings at the listed distilleries. If you are interested in a tour at other Speyside distilleries then please consider our Speyside Whisky Discovery Tour.

Advance booking for tastings is only required for Cardhu tastings. While the other distilleries listed do not require advance bookings for tastings they can get busy during peak season and we may occasionally experience short delays. Tastings at the distilleries are optional and should your group have non-whisky drinkers then they can enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Highlands... while you enjoy the whisky!

Throughout the tour we travel through the wonderful scenery of the East Highlands and depending on how long we are at the distilleries we may have time for a few brief sight-seeing breaks during the tour.

Due to distillery closures on Saturdays and Sundays (particularly outwith the summer months) an alternative itinerary may be recommended depending on your requested tour date. Please note that this tour is not suitable for children (under 18s).

Tours from November to March
The Highlands are renowned for changeable weather, even over the summer months. However, from November to March, poor weather conditions (wind, rain and snow) are more common and daylight hours are reduced (particularly from mid-November to mid-February). For tours during this period we may return to Inverness in darkness. The itinerary and timings may be changed at short notice to adapt to weather conditions, and on very rare occasions tours may be cancelled due to severe weather.
