On the Whisky Bus you will experience four of our favourite distilleries, each of whom will provide a different experience. From a behind the scenes distillery tour at Tomatin Distillery, to a warehouse tasting at Glenfarclas Distillery, tasting sessions at Aberlour and Glenlivet distilleries, plus a visit to the Speyside Cooperage too, this really is a day out to remember!
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
We then take a scenic route through the Cairngorm National Park, which is host to 89 distilleries no less! Our first stop is at the world famous Glenlivet Distillery, where you will enjoy a tutored triple tasting of three drams in one of their exclusive tasting rooms. You will then have time to peruse the exhibition, shop and cafe.
A favourite with our customers due to its intimate feel, this family-owned distillery always gives WOW guests a warm welcome! They are delighted to provide us with a unique experience; a tasting session in the rustic surroundings of their bonded warehouse. We then head inside for a second tasting in the luxurious surroundings of their historic Ship’s Room.
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.
Aberlour Distillery (Fridays only)
Our final stop of the day is to see our friends at Aberlour Distillery, where we will enjoy a dram, "for the road", in their dramming room. You will have a last opportunity to purchase some whisky to take home with you, before he head back to Inverness, via the packhorse bridge at Carrbridge.
Macallan Distillery (Mondays only)
Following a complimentary dram there will be a photo opportunity at Easter Elchies House (the building that features on bottles of the Macallan). You will then have a chance to look inside Scotland’s most modern whisky visitor centre; there are some impressive displays of Macallan to admire and you can also get a view of some of the stills.
