Highland Whisky Discovery Tour

Highland Whisky Discovery Tour

A great contrast tour where you discover a local 'hidden gem' along with exploring the famous Glenmorangie Highland whisky distillery.

Our Highland Whisky Discovery Tour begins from Inverness with a drive along the stunning North Highland coastline to Balblair which has just six distillers handcrafting their single malt whisky. After a distillery tour you enjoy a tutored tasting of two (or four) Balblair vintages. Next we visit the beautiful coastal town of Dornoch where, after a light lunch, you do a Blind Whisky Tasting at the Carnegie Whisky Cellars. Here you get to sample three drams (two single malts and a high quality blend) and try to guess which one is the blend! Leaving Dornoch we return south to visit and tour the famous Glenmorangie Highland distillery and enjoy tastings from their wonderful range of malts.

Tours are exclusively for your private group only (up to 3 persons) and prices are per tour. We only offer private tours and do not combine individuals or separate groups - if your group size is less than 3 the advertised tour price still applies. Prices include all taxes and a driver/guide (John Alasdair Macdonald) but exclude entrance fees, distillery tours and tasting fees (listed above) and meals.

Tour Notes
Distilleries have a silent season when there is no whisky production for a number of weeks (generally during the summer months). Distillery tours still operate but without production in the background. Advance payment is required for most distillery tour fees. Please note that this tour is not suitable for children (under 18s).
