Travelling in the winter means that cold weather might follow you everywhere you go.
The key to win this battle against nature is easy: warm yourselves up! And we all know that in Scotland the best way to do so is trying new whiskies whenever you can or simply having a dram of your favourite one. Although, traditions are also important and learning how to keep them alive is a vital part of our culture. There is always a way to learn and enjoy yourselves, in this case why not going on a distillery tour? Unsure of which one to visit? We have the best recommendations for you!
The Glen Ord Distillery is in Muir of Ord, a wee village near Inverness. There are few options for you, if you would like to enquire about their facilities. For a short tour, you will visit the exhibition, watch a short video and receive a complimentary dram of Singleton, the Glen Ord special whisky. You can also go for the classic tour of the distillery, finishing off with a taste of their Singleton. Otherwise, you can get a tutored nosing and tasting of 3 different whiskeys from around Scotland or 3 different Singleton of their production – 12, 15 and 18 years old. Plenty of choices for everyone and if you want to fully enjoy this experience together, you can catch a train from Inverness to Muir of Ord, so you won’t need a designated driver!
