    THE GLENFIDDICH DISTILLERY TOUR PROGRAMME:

     

    Glenfiddich, producer of the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, has developed a new tour programme for The Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. From January 2015, visitors will be able to choose from a tailored range of three paid-for tours. The over-18s-only tours cater for all interests and budgets, from those looking for a unique behind the scenes distillery visit through to whisky enthusiasts seeking a fully immersive experience, and vary in duration from one and a half hours up to three and a half hours. Further details are below:

     

    1. Explorer Tour (£10): a fully guided tour of the distillery and Warehouse 8, including a tutored tasting of four award winning drams.

     

    1. Glenfiddich Solera Deconstructed (£35): a new hands-on, tailored experience with a full introduction to Glenfiddich’s unique Solera system. Visitors can nose several samples, enjoy a tutored tasting of four award winning whiskies and recreate a 5cl bottle of Glenfiddich 15 Year Old to take home. 

     

    1. New Pioneer (£95): a half-day immersive experience for whisky enthusiasts. This in-depth tour offers insight into the marrying process in Warehouse 6, and the opportunity to bottle a 20cl whisky from the Malt Master’s personal selection of casks. Finally, guests enjoy a nosing and tasting masterclass in the Grant Family Home, featuring Glenfiddich whiskies matched with appetisers.

     

    We are extremely proud of the fact that Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family-owned today and all tours will continue to offer an unforgettable insight into our unique, family-run heritage. We look forward to welcoming guests to our distillery.
