On the Whisky & Castle Tour you will experience four of our favourite distilleries, plus a castle and a cooperage!
You can find full tour information, including the itinerary, photos and FAQs here on our website. The itinerary is summarised below.
At Tomatin Distillery you will be taken on an in-depth distillery tour, which will give you a great foundation for the day ahead. Afterwards you will be treated to a tutored tasting of three drams, which have been specially selected for WOW guests.
First and foremost the family home of the Macpherson-Grants, we are always given a warm welcome at the castle, which is resplendent with family memorabilia, fine furniture and paintings. You will have two hours here to independently enjoy the castle, its gardens, shop and cafe.
Perhaps not always on the Speyside tick list, but this hidden gem never fails to deliver an excellent experience. As the largest working cooperage in the UK you will have a tour of the facility (prepare to be amazed at the skill of the masterful coopers!) and can even try your hand at making a mini-cask.
Recently renovated at a cost of £140 million, this brand new visitor centre is a complete contrast to all of the others we have visited; prepare to be blown away by its sleek modern look and feel. We will head to the panoramic bar (where there are apparently 926 open bottles of Macallan!) and will be treated to a tutored tasting of three of our favourites. You will then have the opportunity to peruse the 18m high glass wall of 840 whisky bottles, admire the gleaming copper stills and and snap a photo at Easter Elchies House (the building that features on bottles of the Macallan).
