Over the years I have visited many distilleries in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland - but not for a considerable period. The difference is that one now pays for the experience! However, if this Aberfeldy distillery is anything to go by, the payment is worthwhile. Periodically I stay with a friend in Aberfeldy and I suggested that during a future visit we visit the distillery we frequently passed. During my recent visit, it rained. We booked in for the 12.15am tour and arrived as recommended at 11.30pm so we could see the film and visit the interactive museum. We followed the recommendation, but could have done with more time..
The tour was very interesting. Upon reflection, I had mostly been to single malt distilleries, so it was fascinating to visit a blend distillery. When we visited the area when all the casks of whiskies blended to produce the Aberfeldy blend, In addition to the basic tour, the distillery had three additional tours for connoisseurs.
We had thought about lunching at the café, but we found what was on offer lacked appeal. We went out elsewhere for lunch. This is the only area where we thought change was required. Thoroughly recommended - a lunch venue excluded,
