Tour Options and DetailsOptions and Details

1. Blair Athol Distillery

Blair Athol is located in the picturesque town of Pitlochry in the foothills of the Grampian Mountains. Water originating from Ben Vrackie flows down the Allt Dour (Gaelic for River of the Otter) and through the grounds of the distillery. The otter features prominently on the Blair Athol single malt label as a result.

This is a lovely small distillery and offers a range of different tours priced from £9.50 to £250 for you to enjoy. It is not necessary to take a full tour if you prefer you can enjoy a whisky at their bar instead. There is a well stocked shop with a range of different whiskies available to purchase.

2. Dewars Aberfeldy Distillery

Founded in 1898, Dewars Distillery in Aberfeldy produces spirit that goes into the single malt as well as their blended range of whiskies. Dewars is popular throughout the world and the distillery is the spiritual home of America’s best selling Scotch.

A range of different tours priced from £10.50 to £99.00 is available at the Distillery or if you prefer, you can enjoy a tasting at their well stocked Whisky Lounge. Dewars is closed on a Sunday so an alternate distillery will be substituted if you make a booking on this day.
