Owner description: 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.

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).

coffee and hot chocolate very good quality....cakes may have been fresher....probably due to the cafe being quiet.

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

.. so you know when the tours take place. We ended waiting for an hour and a half for the explorer tour, but it most definitely worth it. Excellent facilities, very informative tour (this was out first one ever). And the location itself is stunning.

We did the first ever Solera tour today. It was brilliant. Booked well in advance, cost £35 each. Two and a half hours, initially I wasn't sure how that was going to be filled, but it was! Our tour guide Beth was brilliant, very knowledgeable, knows her product well, enjoys a dram or two herself and has a sense of... More

Having visitors from overseas who wanted to tour a distilliary we arranged to go on the Explorers Tour (£10 a head) and it was very good. The guide was friendly and while the basic tour doesn't go into too much detail we were impressed with her. For those who are really into their whisky it may not be to their... More

Visited the Distillery in January 2015,very good signage and an excellent car park. Simply cross the narrow road from the car park and into the entrance footpath which leads to the Visitor Welcome Centre where you'll find spotless toilets, the whiskey hand wash smells gorgeous! Pay your £10 and it's only a short wait to the next tour. The hour... More

Slick, profesional and lives up to the global brand. Have been many times, whilst I feel the tour has lost some of its reel feel base this on those office guys who call themselves 'health and safety' nevertheless the food in the bistro/ coffee shop is absolutely first class. I have eaten in many places over the years and the... More

Enjoyed our morning coffee at the Restaurant in front of the beautiful open log fire, on a cold and windy day. We were a party of 4 our Danish guests very much enjoyed their free tour and tastings. The whole place is just spotless. Hope to stop and have lunch, as I spotted haggis, neeps, and tatties.

For any visitor to Scotland or indeed anyone interested in Whisky a visit to the Glenfiddich Distillery will remain in the memory. Beautifully sculptured grounds and rest rooms fit for a Queen combine with a lovely restaurant to eat in after the Distillery Tour. The onsite shop is a tad expensive and many of the products can be purchased more... More
