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. Visitors will be able to choose from a tailored range of three paid-for tours. 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 Glenfiddich Solera Deconstructed (£50): 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.

This distillery is a must see when visiting Scotland. The choice of tours on hand, however we took the quick 1 hour tour and ended up in the lavish restaurant with the kids, while my husband sat at the tasting bar. The gift shop is plentiful, and we took up the offer to bottle our own whiskey. A great experience... More

If you don't have time for a long tour, but you want a nice experience......this is the place to go. Beautiful grounds, lovely visitor center and a full cafe and tasting bar. Awesome gift shop and the Ladie's will be amazed by the lavish loo. (My wife took pictures). If you can only make a quick stop, have a dram... More

We visited the distillery and took the last tour of the day. I cannot confirm what other reviews say that they are not handling the customers friendly. Also on the last tour of the day at very bad weather we were treated very friendly and also not hurried during the tasting at the end of the tour (three different whiskies).... More

What an unfriendly place Glenfiddish is, They have forgotten that we the public are the ones that drink their whiskey and need to be reminded how to treat people. My wife and I had been traveling around England and Scotland at this point for more than 3 weeks and found distilleries in general to be very open, warm and welcoming,... More

Me and my four friends opted for the 1 hour free tour for which there is no need to book. We were a bit dubious at first as sometimes the free tours are a bit hit and miss. We had nothing to fear, the free tour lasts a good hour and is packed with information, history and the ins and... More

We decided to skip the tour and headed straight to the tasting bar. They have an incredible selection of whisky served in a beautiful bar. It oozed luxury. (I even took pictures in the ladies room; it was so incredible)

Great free tour giving details of whiskey production and the distillery itself. lasts around 1 hour and is well worth going too. The restaurant is very nice too and the scenery around the distillery is very pretty. Best distillery I have ever visited

There are so many distilleries to try but what made us choose this one is the famous name. There is a free tour but also two different, more in depth tours you can take if you wish.

We paid 10 quid for the 90 minute tour. It was well worth it. The tour guide was very informative and well spoken and we had a really good look at the inner workings of the distillery as well as some fine tastings. I was very surprised at how much whiskey making techniques have in common with wine and sherry... More
