Glenlivet Distillery Tours

Glenlivet Distillery
Amid the rolling glens of Scotland’s premier whisky region, Speyside in the Cairngorms National Park, The Glenlivet Distillery opened in 1824 and is considered as the granddaddy of all single malts. Distilled in unique lantern-shaped copper stills and matured in the obligatory oak casks for at least 12 years, The Glenlivet has a fruity, smooth flavor thanks to using Scottish barley and spring water from the local Josie's Well. Now owned by French company Pernod Ricard, it is one of the largest distilleries on Speyside and the biggest selling whisky in the USA, producing nearly six million liters of single malt each year while still maintaining many traditional production methods, all be it on an industrial scale. Unlike most of the smaller Speyside distilleries, bottling does not take place onsite but it has an award-winning visitor center with an exhibition showcasing the development of the brand as well as a café selling whisky-drenched cakes. 

One of the major highlights of the self-driven Malt Whisky Trail through Speyside, The Glenlivet Distillery is open for guided tours and tutored tastings of various drams; visitors can also bottle their own single malt to take home.

Whisky Tour: Speyside Big Three! Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, The Macallan TrailDay Trips

Whisky Tour: Speyside Big Three! Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, The Macallan Trail

star-5
This private customisable tour will take you to the three biggest, most well known Distilleries on Speyside, namely The Macallan, Glenlivet, and Glenfiddich. Scotland has very strict drink driving laws, so why not hire us to take you on a Whisky Trail? This is a private tour and only your party will participate. Note that due to COVID19 restrictions, distilleries may be opened and closed at short notice. We will endeavour to stick to the itinerary and these three distilleries, but flexibility may be required and substitutions may be necessary. Typically this tour will take you to the spectacular Macallan Distillery in the morning for a tasting. Lunch and a tasting will follow at the Glenfiddich Distillery, and then the afternoon is spent at Glenlivet Distillery for a further tasting. There is usually sufficient time in the schedule to take a pre-booked tour at one of the Distilleries. We will work with you in advance to plan this into the itinerary for the day.
