Our Whisky Tour from Inverness has been carefully crafted to give malt whisky fans an interesting and insightful introduction to the Highland and Speyside whisky regions.
The Whisky Bus departs from Inverness at 8.30am, when we will embark on a 10-hour whisky-fuelled adventure to the following Highland and Speyside whisky establishments;
1. Tomatin Distillery
Our first stop is at Tomatin Distillery, where whisky production is thought to have been a way of life since as far back as the fifteenth century. Here you will be taken on a distillery tour, which will give you a great foundation for the day ahead. After the tour you will be encouraged to “ experience the softer side of the Highlands” with tutored tastings of three specially selected drams.
2. Glenlivet Distillery
Our next stop is Glenlivet Distillery, where you will experience a tutored tasting of three drams. Following this, you will have some time to browse the shop or try some whisky cake in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop.
3. Glenfarclas Distillery
Our next stop is Glenfarclas Distillery, one of the few family-owned distilleries in Scotland, and a favourite of our customers due to its relaxed ambience and unique history. Here we will hear a bit about the distillery, whilst enjoying a dram in the unique surroundings of their bonded warehouse. After that we will head inside, where you will enjoy a second tasting of this traditional Speyside malt in the luxurious surroundings of The Ship’s Room.
4. Speyside Cooperage
At the Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in Scotland, highly skilled coopers are still using traditional skills to restore and repair casks. Here we will be treated to a 4D audio-visual presentation, before heading to the viewing gallery to admire the coopers at work. Don't underestimate how impressive this place it - it truly is a highlight of the day!
5. Macallan Distillery
And last, but certainly not least, we will visit the hugely impressive Macallan Distillery Visitor Centre, where we will enjoy a triple tasting in their panoramic bar. There are some impressive displays of Macallan to admire and you can also get a view of some of the stills, as well as having a wander to Easter Elchies House, which famously features on every bottle of Macallan.
As the journey through Speyside is a picturesque one, we may make a stop on the way home at the 18th Century packhorse bridge in Carrbridge. Upon your return to Inverness, there are many excellent pubs within a few minutes’ walk of the bus stop, so you may well find that some of your fellow travelers will join you to toast a final "uisge beatha"!
