Whisky Tours of Scotland

Whisky takes its name from the Gaelic for ‘water of life’.

You can find distilleries all over Scotland.

Each area adds its own flavour and character to whisky. Salty sea air, peaty fires, and natural spring water: each can play a part in Scotch whisky. Follow the story from barley to barrel to bottle.
