Scotch Whisky Tours
Scotch Whisky is more than a drink; it is very much a part of Scotland’s culture and identity. Each Scotch Whisky region boast their distinct flavours coming from their iconic landscapes, soil, climate and indeed, local traditions.
The Islay region produces a smoky flavour thanks to the use of peat, which can be found all over the island, in their malting process. Also being close to the sea, some of the Islay distilleries say their whisky has a taste of the salty sea air. We have a fantastic Islay Whisky and Jura Tour which starts from both Glasgow and Edinburgh where you can learn more about some of our personal favourite whiskies on one of our favourite islands.
You can then compare Islay, with the light, subtle flavours of the Speyside Region. The Spey River is the fastest flowing River in Scotland and as a result, has very soft and pure water which is ideal for whisky production. The area is famous worldwide for its whisky and thanks to being so far from the tax man in the 19th century; their distilleries thrived while others were forced to close. We offer a 5 Day Speyside and Highlands Whisky Tour from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and we would be delighted to bring you on this whisky lovers pilgrimage.
