Description: Glenfiddich, producer of the World's Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch...
Glenfiddich, producer of the World's Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, has developed a new tour programme for The Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. From January 2015, visitors will be able to choose from a tailored range of three paid-for tours, including an option to draw a dram straight from a cask in our oldest warehouse. The over-18s-only tours cater for all interests and budgets, from those looking for a unique behind the scenes distillery visit through to whisky enthusiasts seeking a fully immersive experience, and vary in duration from one and a half hours up to three and a half hours. Further details are below: 1. Explorer Tour (£10): a fully guided tour of the distillery and Warehouse 8, including a tutored tasting of four award winning drams. Tours from 9.30Pm - 4.00Pm Draw Your own Dram (£25): those on the Explorer tour also have the opportunity to draw a 20cl bottle directly from a cask laid down more than 12 years ago and log it in Warehouse 1's logbook. Glenfiddich Solera Deconstructed (£35): a new hands-on, tailored experience with a full introduction to Glenfiddich's unique Solera system. Visitors can nose several samples and enjoy a tutored tasting of 4 cask strength 15 year old samples before recreating their very own version of Glenfiddich Solera. Two tours daily 2. New Pioneer (£95): a half-day immersive experience for whisky enthusiasts. This in-depth tour offers insight into the marrying process in Warehouse 6, and the opportunity to bottle a 20cl whisky from the Malt Master's personal selection of casks. Finally, guests enjoy a nosing and tasting masterclass in the Grant Family Home, featuring five Glenfiddich whiskies matched with appetisers. One daily tour. We are extremely proud of the fact that Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family-owned today and all tours will continue to offer an unforgettable insight into our unique, family-run heritage. We look forward to welcoming guests to our distillery.

The Glenfiddich distillery is an amazing place. It is in a absolutely gorgeous location in a valley between forest-covered hills that give the place a great feel of isolation from the outside world. The distillery itself is amazing, the tour is really interesting, although if you have been to a distillery previously, you will not learn too many new things... More

An interesting tour round the destillery. We got to see the hole process from grain to wisky and in the shop there was a display of wiskies from Grant's to Glenfittich. The oldest one at a cost of 5000£. Also a very well stocked giftshop.

Make sure you stop by, the distillery is definitely worth a look and the guide will take you on a complete tour. The whiskey tasting at the end is enojyable and insightful. The Staff is very friendly.

A recent company policy change (January this year, I understand) means that under 18s can't event tour the distillery - shame as the process is fascinating (having experienced it elsewhere).

We took a friend who was visiting from Norway and thoroughly enjoyed it. We phoned ahead in order to plan the trip from Aberdeen (little over an hour's drive) and waited only 10-15 minutes for the tour to start. Our guide was a bit distracted in some parts of the tour (She's been working there for some years....) but overall... More
