Take a trip into Whisky paradise on our 1 day Ultimate Whisky Experience tour from Edinburgh. Visit two distilleries; Dewar's and Deanston; view stunning scenery across Loch Lubnaig and enjoy a relaxing stop in the village of Aberfeldy on this Scottish Whisky trail.
Departing Edinburgh, our Ultimate Whisky tour begins with a journey north to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery for our first whisky themed stop of the day. Dewar's world-renowned crafted Highland Single Malt Aberfeldy whisky has been produced at Aberfeldy Distillery since 1898. We spend 2 hours here for their Whisky and Chocolate tasting tour; comprising of a full guided tour of the distillery, warehouse and interactive heritage exhibition, and a tasting of Aberfeldy's 12 year old single malt whisky, the premium Dewar's 12 year old blended Scotch and super-premium Dewar's 18 year old blended Scotch, matched with chocolate sourced from a local chocolatier. The tour costs £23 for three whisky samples with paired chocolates.
“ The Guide was great as well and tried to demonstrate Scottish culture by narrating the bus rides with fun facts and stories and occasionally played Scottish music. ”
- Sarah S, travelled April 2019
After a Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery tour, we continue to the village of Aberfeldy for lunch. Spend time here exploring its streets, enjoy the scenery with plenty of time to grab a bite to eat before our whisky tour continues to Loch Lubnaig, and then to Deanston Distillery.
Located on the River Teith, Deanston Distillery was a cotton mill for over 180 years and has been distilling whisky using traditional methods since the 1960s. We stop here to enjoy a whisky tasting at £13.
Our final stop of the day is a short photo break at Doune Castle (famous for its appearances in Outlander, Game of Thrones and Outlaw King) before we return to Edinburgh where our Ultimate Whisky tour ends.
