Highlights

Why is Whisky Trails different to the rest? Firstly, unlike many other tour companies in the North of Scotland, we continue to provide experiences during the winter months for our customers. Secondly we have invested in a modern petrol/electric hybrid Volvo XC90 All Wheel Drive SUV fully equipped with winter tyres maximise safety. Thirdly, our only focus is on whisky and whisky related industries.

We use these differentiators to provide you and your companions with a safer, more environmentally friendly, whisky focused experience.

On receipt of your booking, we will co-ordinate with you to understand whether you wish to take any distillery tours and confirm timing to enable you to make your booking. This tour can be customised e.g. swapping in Cardhu, Aberlour or others should these be your preference to any of those listed.

This is a private tour and only your group will participate. We reserve the right to cancel this tour on police advice that it's not safe to travel.

What You'll Get

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Glenfiddich Distillery, Station 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.

Glenfiddich has a good bar and restaurant area serving a variety of well priced dishes. This is a good place to have lunch, and if you wish, you can also do a Balvenie Tasting Flight here too!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Mash Tun, Broomfield Square, Aberlour AB38 9QP, UK

The Mash Tun is a Whisky Bar and Restaurant located in the heart of Aberlour. With a huge range of whisky available to sample, this is a great place to have lunch. There is a wide range of food available to suit all tastes and budgets.

Stop At: Glenfarclas Distillery Ballindalloch, Ballindalloch AB37 9BD Scotland

Glenfarclas is one of the few independent family owned distilleries left in Scotland and has been producing whisky since 1836. The Grant Family purchased it in 1865 and opened one of the first dedicated visitor centres there in 1973.

The "Ship's Room" tasting room is an elegant affair covered in the wood panels that once adorned the walls of the smoking room of the RMS Empress of Australia. Relax whilst you receive a free sample of the 10 and 15 year old Glenfarclas Single Malt Whisky.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Macallan Distillery Experience, Easter Elchies Estate, Easter Elchies AB38 9RX Scotland

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
