Take a whisky lover’s ultimate tour of the best Speyside distilleries from Inverness.
After departing from Inverness, you will travel east into the region of Moray and follow the Moray Firth coastline.
After a short drive you will arrive at the Glen Moray Distillery. Here, you may join a tour and discover the different areas of whisky production and sample the golden-hued spirit itself.
Next, travel to Elgin, where you will have free time to sightsee, shop, or savour some local cuisine. If you fancy seeing some gorgeous ruins you can visit the grand Elgin Cathedral. If you want to shop, you can find some fantastic souvenirs in the Gordon and Macphail food and drink shop. This is an excellent emporium of independently bottled whiskies, Scottish Gins and local beers.
From Elgin, venture south towards the river Spey, and pass several distilleries that prove how much the industry has dominated the area for generations.
Next, arrive at Cardhu Distillery*, which is the first distillery pioneered by a woman, Helen Cumming. Today, Cardhu is the most important whisky in Johnnie Walker Black Label.
Your journey back to Inverness follows the river Fiddich to Craigellachie where you should be able to stop for a photo of the Speyside Cooperage.
The last leg of the journey takes you through the lovely scenery of Strathspey with views of the Cairngorm mountains.
Itinerary and distillery visits are subject to change.
*Cardhu’s silent season will run from 1st till 26th October. You will not be able to access the production area, but you will still get a tasting and a video experience.
