A 5-Star Experience

Whisky Tour in Glasgow
Maria Camila, Argentina

This was the best experience I could’ve had in Glasgow! We went to two really nice and lively local pubs, we tried different types of whiskies and we listen to Camilo’s explanations and curious facts about whisky, and finally, we went to The Clydeside Distillery, a lovely place to understand its production process... I got very engaged with whisky culture, it’s the only spirit I want to drink from now on! I really like to find that Camilo is a real expert on the matter and I love the passion with which he gives the tour, it’s inspiring!

I joined the tour with 2 friends of mine and we just had an amazing time with Camilo. I have a basic knowledge about Whiskey but Camilo will present whiskey in a way you didn't experience it before with curiosities, facts and up-to-date news about the world of whiskey. You will try 4 different really nice and completely different drams from 4 different regions of Scotland, each of them in a different unique whiskey bar. If you are a whiskey enthusiast this tour is a must-have-done if you are visiting Glasgow. If you're not, Camilo will make you one with his passion for the "water of life" :)

What a delightful journey through the senses! I attended Once upon a Whisky event with a few friends last December. We had an incredible evening exploring different kinds of whiskies from all over the world and learning all about the complexities of taste through stories, films and maps. The different whiskies were paired with sushi and not only the pairing was absolutely delicious, it really taught me about the infinite possibilities between food and drink that exist when you open your mind to it. Camilo is extremely knowledgable and teaches you by ways of storytelling, which really takes the experience to the next level.

Great idea to spend your evening. I’m not a fan of whisky and drinking at all, to be honest, but I am a fan of the atmosphere of sincere and frank communication arising in a friendly company! This whisky tour is really good managed, all aspects are elaborated. First, you are told a story of the drink, a process of its creation, special features, then offered to smell and taste. Also, I was very lucky to win a bottle of whisky. Thanks, Camilo, for this interesting tour!

I'm a whisky amateur and this tour was perfect to learn more about this epic Scottish drink while wandering through some whisky bars in Glasgow. I expanded my knowledge on whisky, on how to drink it, the history surrounding it and learnt interesting facts I didn't know about, for example, music and movies that have been influenced by whisky. Camilo, the tour guide, is very professional, helpful and has extensive knowledge and understanding of whisky. I recommend this tour for anyone regardless of their whisky knowledge!

My friends and I went on this tour on our last night in Glasgow. Two of them are not whisky drinkers, but you do not have to love whisky to enjoy the tour. Camilo was so informative and his knowledge of Scotch and whisky selections were unbelievable. We tasted whiskies from different regions in Scotland and Camilo took the time to talk about each one. He also taught us how to properly taste the whisky and identify a flavour profile. All in all, this was probably one of my favourite tours in Glasgow. I definitely recommend it to whisky lovers and anyone who wants to learn about Scottish whisky origins. I left the tour with a lot of new information. Thanks, Camilo!

In one word, amazing. I had such a great time on this tour. You will definitely learn a lot about whisky here, and it does not really matter if you have some previous knowledge or not. Camilo will clear and explain everything you want to know, and as a bonus, he will add some curiosities and tell you the state-of-the-art things from current whisky industry. You will discover 4 important whisky bars in Glasgow West End, which every one of them has its own story, and try some astonishing whisky. In my opinion, this tour is definitely worth your time and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to sample great Scottish drams and ends up with better knowledge of whisky and Glasgow itself.

Given that I have lived in Scotland for almost two years, last August I brought my parents, who came to visit me, for the first time to discover Edinburgh. Among the many activities available, we decided to take an afternoon to discover Scotch whisky by booking the tour with Once Upon a Whisky. The choice was great! Our guide, Camilo, delighted us with many curiosities about Scotch whisky, talking about the different qualities, regions and organoleptic characteristics. Without ever falling into the trivial. If you happen to be in Edinburgh or Glasgow, it is an experience that I highly recommend.
