The following distilleries are the ones located in the Scottish Central Belt with easy accessibility from Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh or anything in between.
Located just outside the Glasgow area, Auchentoshan has been for centuries one of the most important whisky institutions in the city. Famous for its less than conventional approach to whisky making due to its triple distillation process which is not common at all anywhere in Scotland. Auchentoshan is a good example of innovation in a very traditional industry.
At Auchentoshan Distillery we recommend:
- Standard Tour (Morning or afternoon): 2 whiskies included
- Essence Tour (Morning): In-depth tour and 4 whiskies included
- Ultimate Tour (Afternoon): In-depth tour, single cask whisky and tasting at the blender’s room
A whisky distillery continuously in operation since its founding in 1833 at Dumgoyne, north of Glasgow, Scotland. Glengoyne’s stills are in the Highlands while maturing casks of whisky rest across the road in the Lowlands. Unlike many malt whisky distilleries in the western islands, Glengoyne does not use peat in the production process. On the contrary, is a very delicate and easy whisky to drink. Its 18-year-old expression is highly recommended.
At Glengoyne Distillery we recommend:
- Standard Tour (Morning and afternoon): 2 whiskies included
- Whisky & Chocolate Tour (Morning and afternoon): In-depth tour, 3 whiskies and chocolate pairing.
- The Fine and Rare Tasting (Afternoon): Whisky tasting of a 25yo Sherry Cask, 30yo Sherry Cask and a mystery dram (Distillery tour not included)
- The Malt Master Experience (Afternoon): An in-depth tour where you will be able to create your single malt whisky and bottle it into a 200ml bottle.
Located in the Highlands region, but still pretty close to Glasgow. Deanston is the opposite of Auchentoshan. They are very traditional and true representatives of the Scottish heritage at its best. It used to be a cotton mill back in the 18th century, but now is home to one of the best single malt whiskies in Scotland.
Besides being one of the most historic distilleries in Scotland. Deanston is well known for its wonderful, fresh, honeyed sweetness and also for using a traditional, hand-crafted approach within its production process.
At Deanston Distillery we recommend:
- Standard Tour (Morning): 2 whiskies included
- The Warehouse Experience (Afternoon): As its name suggests, you will be able to drink whisky in its most natural way: Directly from the cask! A chance to taste some of their most unique single cask expressions. (Distillery Tour not included)
And last but not least, Tullibardine Distillery. An absolute treasure from the Highlands region. The distillery is located just a couple of hours up north from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Its whisky is a typical highland style flavour profile: complex, rich, spiced, sweet and fruity. A true delicacy among other whiskies from the region and one of the most innovative distilleries when it comes to cask maturation. Among some of the casks used during the maturation process, you will find Sicilian Marsala wine casks, Sauternes, and Burgundy among others. As a curious fact, the distillery is family owned and independent. One of the very few distilleries in Scotland that possesses an indoor bottling plant.
At Tullibardine Distillery we recommend:
- The Bonded Tour (Morning and Afternoon): an in-depth distillery tour that gives you access to the bonded warehouse and finishes with a whisky tasting of three single malt whiskies including a 15 yo release.
