Dufftown Distilleries Walk

 

Get off the tourist track! Discover the Malt Whisky Capital of the World - with a local!

The renowned Dufftown Distilleries Walk is a relaxed walking tour around the past and present distillery sites of Dufftown. Drink in the history, the surroundings and of course samples from the distilleries themselves! This tour allows access to otherwise closed distilleries as well as the opportunity to taste some rather rare drams! Please remember your walking shoes. We will walk 6km in total, if this is a problem for you please get in touch.

There are 4 options for your tour, BOOKING ESSENTIAL for all tours, on the day is fine. Check availability HERE and then book via e-mail info@speysidetours.co.uk We will reply with confirmation within 24hrs:

WHISKY & CHOCOLATE TOUR: Some people say they don't like whisky!!! When they taste whiskies with specially chosen hand made chocolates from Scotland's premier chocolatier, Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier they change their minds. From velvet truffles to pralines this will open your mind to the perfect marriage of whisky and chocolate. We are now including the Iain Burnett Dark Velvet Truffle, this is the WORLD's Best Dark Chocolate Truffle. The whiskies tasted will be the usual ones tasted during the Dufftown distilleries walk plus a couple more, usually what I am enjoying at the time! DURATION 3.5Hrs. COST £34.

Please note there is no Parkmore single malt whisky - never has been! Instead I give you a whisky that I like!

3 COURSE WHISKY DINNER: This is the perfect way to end your whisky tour. This delicious dinner is matched with 3 whiskies and a tutored nosing and tasting is provided. COST £45

I recommend that you stay the night in Dufftown or nearby. Please don't drive after the walk if you have been tasting the whiskies, although it is a small taste you get, the tighter laws concerning drink driving in Scotland mean that you will be over the limit to drive after the walk.

Should the above timings not fit with your schedule or you would like a tour tailored to your requirements or indeed you would like to incorporate other Speyside distilleries please get in touch. Email: info@speysidetours.co.uk

We pair golf courses with the offerings from their local distillery, a dram during play always helps the score!
