Day 1
Glenlivet, Knockando, Craigellachie

Your whisky pilgrimage begins deep in the heart of Speyside at The Glenlivet Distillery. After your visit there, follow the River Spey north to Knockando for a tour of Cardhu Distillery before heading west to Craigellachie to round your day off with a visit to the Speyside Cooperage.

The Glenlivet Distillery
Begin your tour of Speyside's famous distilleries by visiting The Glenlivet Distillery in Banffshire. Admission is free and the guided tour gives you an insight into the intriguing history of this spectacular single malt, concluding with a complimentary dram of The Glenlivet 12, 18-years-old, or Nàdurra.

Cardhu Distillery
Drive 13 miles north to Knockandu for your next stop on the trail, Cardhu Distillery. Take one of the two tours offered to find out more about the only malt whisky distillery pioneered by a woman. Enjoy a dedicated tasting and nosing session with an expert at the end of the 'Glassic Tour' which includes a complimentary whisky glass to take home.

Speyside Cooperage
Continue 9 miles towards Dufftown, considered by many to be the heart of the Speyside whisky region, where you'll discover the spectacular Speyside Cooperage. At the only working cooperage in the UK you have the unique opportunity to witness the ancient art of creating whisky barrels using traditional tools and methods and you can even have a go at making your own mini-cask. Overnight Craigellochie area.

Day 2
Dufftown, Rothes, Keith

The second part of your whisky adventure is a day in whisky heaven, with tours of three working distilleries. Begin in Dufftown, the 'Malt Whisky Capital' of the world, with a tour of Glenfiddich Distillery before heading to Glen Grant Distillery followed by Strathisla Distillery.

Glenfiddich Distillery
Start your second day with a trip to the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown. Built by William Grant and his family over a period of 18 months, the first drops of whisky flowed from the stills on Christmas Day, 1887. For a truly memorable experience, book a place on the half-day Pioneer's Tour where you get to bottle your Glenfiddich direct from the cask and enjoy a tasting and nosing masterclass.

Glen Grant Distillery
A quick journey to Rothes takes you to the Glen Grant Distillery, the only Scotch whisky distillery that is named after its founding owners. Explore the distillery's beautiful Victorian Garden then take a guided tour or private tasting session to find out more about the distinctive dram.

Strathisla Distillery
Take a 20 minute drive to Keith and tour Strathisla Distillery, the oldest operating distillery in the Highlands which dates back to 1786.
