Escape to whisky heaven on Speyside in the company of your local whisky insider guide. I can create your personalised introduction to Speyside malt whisky, or shape your own preferences into a tailor-made itinerary.

Whether you’re a whisky novice or a seasoned connoisseur, let me take you on your voyage of discovery of our ‘uisge beatha’ – the water of life. Either way, you'll enjoy your whisky tastings to the full - sit back and let me do the driving. With a whisky insider, professionally trained guide and local as your driver-guide, you're in good hands.

Opt for a one-day tour or let me create the two to three-day whisky escape of your dreams.

Every tour is unique, reflecting your wishes and is exclusive to your party, but a sample itinerary might be:

  • Pick up from accommodation
  • Visit to the Speyside Cooperage – “it’s the wood that makes the whisky”
  • Tour of The Macallan distillery’s stunning new home and visitor experience
  • Lunch at The Glenfiddich distilllery’s Malt Barn restaurant
  • Tour of Glenfarclas distillery, owned by the 6th generation of the Grant family
  • Tour of The Glenlivet distillery, in its remote smugglers’ glen
  • Return to your accommodation or restaurant/whisky bar of your choice within the area

You might even be tempted to mix your drinks - why not include a visit to one of Speyside's craft gin distilleries, and experience another aspect to the "spirit of Speyside"?

Specific itineraries are subject to the availability of tour times at attractions.

You will travel in comfort in a roomy SEAT Alhambra MPV with leather seats, air conditioning and sunroof, carrying up to 6 passengers.

Included in tour cost: fresh water and snacks.

Excluded from tour cost: admission to distilleries/attractions and lunch/other refreshments.
