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.

Having specifically checked the distillery was open we arrived to find it closed!
Very disappointed but given the whisky I'm not surprised

The Glenfiddich Distillery is located in arguably some of the most beautiful and wild scenery on the planet. The Highlands of Scotland are still very open and undeveloped, which makes driving a pleasure. Glenfiddich located their distillery on land with a spring, and are thus able to control the quality of the water they use. The resulting whisky is amazing. We took the Connoisseurs' tour, which ended with a private tasting. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the setting was beautiful. It was a great way to learn more about the national drink, and how to appreciate it properly. Single malts are definitely the way to go!

superb tour. just like a museum guided tour.
even though had read & read about the history & the process & how they still retain the still process for distilling in the modern age. yet, a tour is a tour is a tour. & even my kids loved the whole experience.
did pick a few souvenirs from the shop & back happy

The tour was very good and the guide was very informative. The tastings at the end of 3 different different types of Glenfiddich were a welcome surprise as the tour was free!!
Well worth a visit

Bring most of our visitors here on a regular basis - interesting tour and caters for non-English speakers.
