For lovers of fine Scotch whisky, a visit to the Scottish Highlands would not be complete without visiting a distillery that produces fine malt whiskey.
Travel to Glenmorangie Distillery (or equivalent), one of Scotland’s favorite malt whisky producer for over 150 years. The beautiful building enjoys an ideal setting overlooking the shores of the Dornoch Firth. The methods by which the range is made today remain as unchanged as the surrounding landscape. Only pure, mineral-rich water, and the best malted barley is used in the process.
Accompanied by an expert guide will introduce you to the natural elements and the time-honored tradition. You’ll learn all stages of the whisky making process from mashing and fermenting, to distilling and maturing. See the gleaming copper stills, casks of American oak, operating equipment and methods used in the various stages of processing fine malt whisky. Following a tour of the distillery, you'll be treated to a sampling of a `wee dram`.
You’ll also have some time to browse in the shop which sells a wide variety of whiskies and gifts.
