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. 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 trip was included in my tour of Scotland, so I really didn't know what to expect. I am so glad we were able to experience this! Zorcia was our tour guide and she was just wonderful and very informative. We had a fairly large group and she was attentive to everyone and answered all of our questions.

The whisky tasting part at the end of the tour was also nice. I am not at all familiar with such things, but having her there to explain how to bring out the smell and taste of the varying aged libations was very interesting. Would recommend a visit, it was great!

After being told about the distillery by another couple we went to see if what they said was true. It was. The staff were brilliant the setting is great, the whole distillery inside and out was immaculate. The tour was excellent and well presented, with great aplomb, thank you charlotte !!. To top it of you get to savour 3 whiskies of different ages and flavours. If you are in the vicinity l can only say GO!!. All this and it was a free Tour!! Amazing, Thank You :-)

On our recent trip through Scottland, we had Glenfiddich Distillery on our list and did not regret it!! The whole complex is very impressing and kept spotlessiy clean and very beautiful. We were welcomed very warmly and got a german tour within 15 minutes. The guide was very friendly and the tour kept on a perfect timelevel, not too long, but long enough to get a good idea of making whisky. Even our 10 year old son was impressed and interested. Got to taste 3 different whisky´s (12, 15 & 18 years) and children even get a soda. The tour is free and so the glenfiddich Team makes you feel like a guest, not just a customer!! The giftshop is kept very based on the product, no cheap souveniers, so it matches the styie and you "have" to buy!! i never used to drink Whisky, but with the glasea and the 18Year old, we´re sitting at home now, looking at the pictures of our vacation and dreaming of coming back to this great country next year! Thank you gelfiddich, for adding to a great vacation to remember, we´ll be back!!

Even for a Scotsman this was a fantastic and very informative day out, the young female guide was excellent and very amusing throughout the tour. It was unbelievable how tidy and clean the whole complex was, and free entry was also surprising, top marks to Glenfiddich.
