Highlights

Scotland has very strict drink driving laws, so rather than falling foul of these why not hire us and one of the safest and most luxurious vehicles in Scotland to take you on a Whisky Trail? This tour will take you to the three biggest, most well known Distilleries on Speyside, namely The Macallan, Glenlivet, and Glenfiddich.We are a small family owned tour business so the only people we aim to please are you, our customers. We have no shareholders to please or set schedules we have to follow. We provide you the ultimate flexibility to decide what you would like to see and to change the timing and itinerary to suit you. We will take you on a relaxed drive between stop offs, pointing out items or places of interest to you. Should you wish to take a tour of a distillery, bookings in advance is essential; we will liaise with you to confirm the logistics of your day to enable you to make your tour bookings. Tastings can be taken at most distilleries without the need to book in advance.

What You'll Get

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Macallan Estate, Macallan Distillery, Easter Elchies, Aberlour AB38 9RX, UK

This distillery is like no other you have come across. It finally opened to the public in the summer of 2018 and initially caused traffic chaos with the police having to be called to restore calm. The distillery roof is shaped like five hills with meadow grass on the top.
One of these hills houses the new visitor centre complete with art gallery, and six different rooms that define the style of the Macallan single malt. A very impressive whisky wall showcases more than 400 bottles from the Macallan archive.
The Macallan Six Pillars Tour is the most popular tour offered, costing £15 and lasting around an hour. The Macallan Tours are usually booked up well in advance, however if it is not possible to do the tour, you can still wander around the impressive visitor centre and take in a whisky or two in their Linger Lounge.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Glenfiddich Distillery Castle Road, Dufftown AB55 4DH Scotland

Glenfiddich is in the middle of an upgrade which will see production expanded to 20 million litres per year. This upgrade is the result of the continued rise in global demand for the single malt, with Glenfiddich now accounting for 50% of the total sales by volume for the company.
Glenfiddich is historically significant as they became the first to systematically promote a single market globally including through television advertising. This ensured that Glenfiddich became the best-selling single malt globally, a position it retains today.
Glenfiddich runs tours on the hour between 10:00 and 16:00. There are a number of different tours, the most popular of which is the Explorer Tour which costs £10 per person and lasts 90 minutes.

There is also a bar and restaurant which would be a good place for lunch however other options are available locally too such as The Mash Tun, and The Highlander Inn.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
