From Edinburgh, travelling up the whisky smuggler’s route north to SPEYSIDE, our first stop is EDRADOUR. This is Scotland’s smallest distillery, producing fine single malts on a farmhouse scale. Travelling through some of Scotland’s most beautiful mountain scenery, we will arrive at the DALWHINNIE, the highest distillery at 1073 feet. We will stay overnight in the Speyside area, the home of Scottish whisky. Your hotel for the next two nights will have a huge choice of whiskies to sample. Tonight, we will arrange for you to have a private NOSING and TASTING with one of the local whisky experts.

Day 3: Aberlour - Macallan

Day 3: Aberlour - Macallan

Today, two in depth tours that will explain the whisky making process in this part of Scotland. Firstly, ABERLOUR is one of the most respected whiskies in Scotland. Here, you are able to hand-fill your own personally labelled bottle of Aberlour from a sherry butt and a bourbon barrel, each considered to be fine examples of the distillery’s style. Then MACALLAN, Speyside’s best known heavyweight. Their fine collection of whiskies fetch up to $33,000 per bottle. Following an in depth tour of the distillery, guests have the opportunity to sample the oaky, resiny, sherried flavours of the whiskies.

Day 4: Glenfiddich - Glenlivet

Day 4: Glenfiddich - Glenlivet

On our final day, two great names in whisky production. GLENFIDDICH uses traditional coal firing in one of the two still houses. It is one of the few distilleries to have remained in the hands of the family who founded it. Here we take the Connoisseurs’ tour which includes a tutored nosing. Our last stop is at the GLENLIVET.This is the biggest selling malt in the American market. It is a whisky of structure and complexity with a flowery, peachy style, derived from the light peating and the hardness of the mountain water which runs underground for many miles.
