Which is the best whisky distillery to visit?
Every whisky distillery is worth a visit but with five whisky regions across Scotland, you can choose depending on the type of whisky you enjoy.
The Glenfiddich Distillery
Situated in the north east of Scotland, the Speyside region has around 50 whisky distilleries set amongst beautiful countryside with rivers and glens. Here you’ll find the Glenfiddich distillery.
Built in 1887 by William Grant who set out to create “the best dram in the valley”, the Glenfiddich distillery has been producing high quality, collectable whiskies ever since.
Tours can be booked where you’ll be able to explore the production process and enjoy tastings of several single malts.
The Laphroaig Distillery
“Whisky island”, Islay is located in the Inner Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. Here you’ll find 9 distilleries including the Laphroaig distillery. Founded in 1815 by farmers Donald and Alexander Johnston, the whisky produced here has a strong flavour that’s peaty and smoky, with sweet and salty notes.
The tours available range from spending the day discovering the distillery with warehouse tasting and bottling and even a hike and history walk, to an hour spent enjoying Laphroaig drams with a selection of food nibbles.
The Glenturret Distillery
Nestled in the Highlands, is Scotland’s oldest working distillery, Glenturret. The earliest recorded mention of the distillery dates back to 1763. Over the years, the distillery has changed name and owners but has always remained committed to producing the very best whisky possible.
Distillery tours are available for you to discover the time-honoured methods that bring this iconic whisky to life. There is also the Whisky Maker’s Tour where you’re able to create your own 100ml whisky t take home and enjoy.
Springbank Whisky Distilleries
In the Campbeltown whisky region, on the west coast of Scotland is the Springbank Whisky Distillery. Every process of whisky production is carried out on this site, from the malting of the barley to the bottling, something that can’t be said for all distilleries. Three types of single malt Scotch whisky are produced at here: Springbank, which is lightly peated and distilled two and a half times, Longrow which is more heavily peated and double distilled and Hazelburn, which is triple distilled and unpeated giving it a delicate and light flavour.
Tours and tastings are available including a Barley to Bottle Tour. This in-depth tour allows you to experience the entire whisky making process and even blend your own 70cl bottle to take home.
The Glenkinchie Distillery
The Lowland whisky region covers southern Scotland, taking in the rolling countryside and farmlands. Here you’ll find the Glenkinchie Distillery, just 15 miles south east of Edinburgh. Set amongst farmland and gardens, this distillery is the Lowland home of Johnnie Walker.
There are different tours which include the Glenkinchie Flavour Journey, the Glenkinchie Flavour & Cask Experience and the Glenkinchie Behind the Scenes Tour & Tasting.
