The Highland Whisky Experience by Whisky Trails: Glenmorangie, Dalmore, Balblair
This Whisky Trail will transport you in comfort, safety, and style to the North East of Scotland and to three Highland whisky distilleries, namely Balblair, Glenmorangie, and The Dalmore for a series of tastings. You have the option of switching one or more of these with Clynelish or Glen Ord Distilleries should you wish to do so.
No tour of this part of Scotland would be complete without a visit to the Dornoch Castle Whisky Bar where they have over 450 world whiskies for you to sample from. This is also a very good place to enjoy a hearty lunch with your dram.
This is a private tour and only your group will participate.
If you wish to book a tour at one of the distilleries, please co-ordinate this with us so we can build it into the travel plans for your day. Please note no food or whisky is included in this price.Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Glenmorangie Distillery, on the A9 Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ Scotland
Now owned by Moët Hennesy, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 with production starting in 1849. Glenmorangie is famous the world over for its whisky with the first exports starting as long ago as 1880.
Moving with modern times, the Distillery installed an anaerobic digestion plant in 2017 to process and break down by products such as pot-ale and lees which in turn means the production process is more sustainable. This has removed the need for them to be taken away from the Distillery by tanker for processing elsewhere. A range of Glenmorangie Single Malt Whiskies are available to purchase and try in the relaxed environment of the tasting room.
Duration: 1 hourStop At:
Dornoch Castle Whisky Bar & Grant MacNicol at the Castle Restaurant, Castle St, Dornoch IV25 3SD, UK
No whisky tour to the Highlands would be complete without visiting the Dornoch Castle Hotel's Whisky Bar. Home to one of the newest distilleries in Scotland, the Whisky Bar has an extensive collection of rare and unique malts which you are able to sample (for a fee of course). If the weather is fine, this can be taken in the garden, however if it's a little colder, the Castle Bar is a great alternative.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutesStop At:
Balblair Distillery, Edderton IV19 1LB Scotland
Founded in 1790, this is possilby one of my favourite distilleries, According to records, this is the fourth oldest distillery in Scotland after Glenturret, Strathisla, and Bowmore,
Balblair creates its malt whisky slowly, and it is then matured at the distillery.
Duration: 1 hourStop At:
The Dalmore Distillery, Alness IV17 0UT Scotland
Dalmore was one of the first single malts to be exported to all corners of the world. For a period of time through the 60s to the early '00s, it was used as part of a blended whisky. It was then transformed once again, into a prestige single malt whisky.
At present, you can taste up to 9 single malts from their core and travel range at £5 per dram, irrespective of the RRP of the bottle. This represents great value as they can retail at up to £175 per bottle!
