Our carefully crafted routes, spanning approximately 3 hours of driving time, will ensure a fulfilling whiskey-filled day. Keep in mind that most distilleries operate tours between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, with the last tour typically at 4:00 pm. Please note that operating hours may vary depending on the time of year, with some distilleries closing earlier from November to March. Be sure to consider these factors when selecting your destinations and brace yourself for an unforgettable day of exploration.
The Designated Driver’s Delight
We care about your safety as much as you do, which is why we have a special tip for our designated drivers. Did you know that most distilleries allow you to take away a small tasting dram? That’s right! Many distilleries provide glass bottle miniatures or even little plastic containers for this purpose. Don’t hesitate to inquire about “take away” or “take home” samples during your visit. In case you can’t find suitable containers at the distilleries, pop by a nearby pharmacy or chemist shop and look for “sample” containers. Yes, we’re talking about urine or specimen sample containers. Rest assured, they are sterile, and their screw-top lids are perfect for keeping your precious whisky safe and secure without any leakage. Alternatively, you can purchase glass screw-top containers beforehand, ensuring the alcohol’s purity won’t be compromised. Although glass containers are more fragile, they offer an unbeatable level of protection against any potential mishaps.
