The Spirit Of Scotland

Edinburgh, Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Inverness, Speyside, Loch Ness, Isle of Skye, Fort William, Glasgow

This trip is designed to lift your spirits. Skilled distillers take pure water from crystal-clear streams and plump, golden barley from the fields and transform them into a precious spirit, which is then poured into oak casks and tucked away to mature. The spirit can't be called Scotch until it has aged in Scotland for at least three years. Most single malt whiskies sleep for much longer, before emerging for their moment to shine. Here you have plenty of opportunities to learn how it's made. Each whisky has its own unique flavors and character. Whatever your palate, we're sure there's one for you - you just have to taste a few to find it! Sip, saunter and savor on this trip that brings you the best of the whisky scene. Take in the sights and discover the true soul of Scotland.
