Speyside Whisky Explorer Tour

Speyside Whisky Explorer Tour

from Inverness

Our Speyside whisky explorer tour begins from Inverness with a visit to Benromach which has just three distillers handcrafting their single malt whisky. After a distillery tour you enjoy a tutored tasting from the range of Benromach malts. Next we visit Glenfiddich where you enjoy a light lunch at the distillery cafe including tastings from their Malt Bar. The afternoon includes visits to two distilleries - Macallan and Cardhu - for tastings from their wide selection of malt whiskies. We end the day with a late afternoon visit to Glenlivet where you take a distillery tour that includes a dram from a cask in the warehouse followed by two more tastings in their dramming room.

    Tastings from £5 per dram
    Tastings from £6 per dram
    Tastings from £3 per dram

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

This tour is based on two standard distillery tours along with up to three other distilleries for tastings only. We have listed our recommended itinerary based on experience, previous clients feedback and timings. However, should you wish to adapt the itinerary then please feel free to contact us with your preferred options (or combination) from Benromach, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Cardhu, Aberlour, Cragganmore or Glenfarclas. Please note that should you be interested in extended distillery tours (such as Balvenie), we would not be able to visit as many distilleries.

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
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. 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).
