Stop At: The Dalmore Distillery, Alness IV17 0UT Scotland
Next up is the Dalmore Distillery with it's distinctive stags head branding and a line up of whiskies to make any luxury brand weak at the knees. If you're not familiar with this whisky (you will be by the time you leave) the King Alexander III is the product of a unique six cask finish (ex-bourbon casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques) it really shouldn't work, but it does. So very, very, well.

Founded in 1790 and according to records, this is the fourth oldest distillery in Scotland after Glenturret, Strathisla, and Bowmore, Balblair creates its malt whisky slowly, and it is then matured at the distillery in the tradtional dunnage warehouses on earthen floors.

Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Glenmorangie Distillery, on the A9 Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ Scotland
Now owned by Moët Hennesy, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 with production starting in 1849. Glenmorangie is famous the world over for its whisky with the first exports starting as long ago as 1880. Moving with modern times, the Distillery installed an anaerobic digestion plant in 2017 to process and break down by products such as pot-ale and lees which in turn means the production process is more sustainable. This has removed the need for them to be taken away from the Distillery by tanker for processing elsewhere. Tours and tastings are possible with the Original Tour costing £7.50 per person. It is possible to visit the tasting room without doing a tour. A range of Glenmorangie Single Malt Whiskies are available to purchase and try in the relaxed environment of the tasting room.
