Speyside, the home of whisky...

 

The Speyside region is world famous for its Whisky industry. More than half of Scotland's operational malt whisky distilleries are located within the Speyside region. Stylistically, Speyside whiskies vary from the light, soft, floral nature of whiskies like Knockando and Cardhu to weighty, more complex and heavily sherried malts such as Mortlach and The Macallan. At the heart of Speyside lies Dufftown, it is referred to as the "Malt Whisky Capital of the World". Speyside Tours arranges days of Speyside distillery tours, sometimes 3 in a day. Obviously we provide the transport! The distillery tours we arrange are often exclusive and in our opinion the best in Speyside .

As the saying goes " Rome was built with seven hills, Dufftown was built with seven stills". With an in-depth knowledge of Dufftown and the Speyside whisky industry Michelle can take you on her Dufftown Distilleries Walk. This tour allows access to otherwise closed distilleries as well as the opportunity to taste some rather rare drams!

NEW! MATURATION MASTERCLASS: This is if you have done enough distillery tours and fancy something different. We visit some Speyside dunnage warehouses, these are being managed by an independent bottler. You will see many unusal casks, with the number of different finishings sure to amaze and intrigue! The tour is provided by the warehouse manager - it is great. I am very proud of it but don't want too many people to know about it!

REALLY NEW! BLENDING MASTERCLASS: How does the masterblender get every bottle of their 16yr old to taste the same? This is the question that prompted the creation of this tour! This is unique to Speyside Tours and we are really excited to launch this for 2017. This is aimed at whisky clubs/groups and allows you to meet a master blender, have a go at blending and marrying and to really get a feel for what a typical day of a masterblender is. This tour will also include a brief distillery tour and tasting. This tour is not available at the weekend.Another service we provide - due to popular demand is the postage of whisky to your home address. Don't let your baggage allowance stop you buying whiskies which you can only get here!

REALLY, REALLY NEW! WHISKY & GOLF PACKAGE: Whisky and Golf are the perfect marriage, well what doesn't go with whisky? No matter what your handicap or even if you have never hit a golf ball in your life, Andrew will take you to a local golf course and will guarantee that you get the ball on the tee! We pair golf courses with the offerings from their local distillery, a dram during play always helps the score! The package of the extended Dufftown Distilleries Walk and a round of Golf costs a bargain £64!
