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.

Having never visited a distillary before but having seen Gelnfiddich everywhere- I expected this to be a much larger and impersonal tour. We had a great time and learned a lot. I would certainly recommend a visit and a tour. Also- the restaurant was great!

This was our first visit to a distillery. We had an excellent and informative guide with a great sense of humour who was able to answer all our questions. Most thoughtfully the distillery offers a miniature bottle of Glenfiddich to take away fro those who are driving and therefore can't sample the whiskies at the end of the tour. This... More

We enjoyed the tour and the multiple tastings at the end. Well worth the time and price. The restaurant is a great place for lunch or a sandwich after the tour.

Our guide on for the tour was not "very" informed about the distillery and its past. Apart from that a good experience for the visitors doing a distillery tour for the first. Was worth the money at £10 which included a 90 min tour and tasting 4 scotches - 12yo, 14yo, 15yo and 18yo. Do book the bigger tours in... More

If you're in the area, worth a visit, but don't go out of your way to see it. The trouble with distilleries is that after you've taken one tour around one of them, you've seen them all. I've been around this one several times, taking friends around, and I've visited several other distilleries.

You have to go on a Friday night to the restraunt as it is five star catering. Food is delicious and washed down with a couple of nice drams.

The only tour to do is the Deconstructed Tour at Glenfiddich. This will allow new and old single malt fans to grasp the granularity of blending whisky. And if you are blessed to have Gemma Paterson as your tour guide - you will be left with a long finish to your memories of Scotland. She provided excellent guidance, knowledge, passion... More

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
