This distillery only opened its doors in July 2019 and are currently producing gin and whisky. Situated next to Holyrood Park, their city-centre distillery is located right in the heart of Edinburgh’s distilling history – on St. Leonard’s Lane. The 180 year old building has been thoughtfully renovated to suit Their distilling needs while making room for the visitors we look forward to welcoming.
As a family owned, independent distillery, they believe in doing things the traditional way, respecting Scottish heritage whilst ensuring that they look to the future. This is why today they continue to handcraft their highland single malt scotch whisky.
Lindores Abbey is a fantastic new distillery with some amazing history behind it! Lindores Abbey is built upon the site where the first written record of whisky ever came from and so much more! If it’s history you are after, this is a must see distillery.
In 2012 Deanston distillery went through a renovation process which gave them a beautiful new visitors center and a cafe (the coffee bothy). It is situated just outside of Stirling. This distillery starred in a movie that I’m sure all you whisky lovers will know well but I will save that story for Deanston to tell you.
People often say that Glengoyne is Scotland’s most beautiful distillery. They are surprisingly easy to get to as well – just under 40 minutes from Glasgow. You’ll learn a lot about whisky here, and you’ll have a lot of fun while you’re at it. You will also be able to have a wee dram!
Aberfeldy Distillery has a lot of history within it, it was set up when one of the sons of John Dewar decided to expand their whisky empire by also producing a single malt whisky. In 1955, Queen Elizabeth ll granted Dewars with her royal warrant. This distillery tour is fantastic and begins with a museum full of Dewars history dating back to 1846.
Dine in the golf clubhouse of one of Scotland’s most prestigious hotels and have a meal that you wont soon forget. The Dormy sits looking over the 18th holes of both the Kings and Queens courses making for some entertainment over lunch.
