Deanston Distillery

Whisky day tours, our first stop is my local, Deanston Distillery on the banks for Salmon filled River Teith.  This hidden gem of a distillery is unique. it started life as a cotton mill back in the 17th century. When the mill closed in the 1960’s it was converted to a distillery and the building is once again at the heart of the community. The cool humid conditions of the old weaving sheds perfect location for slow maturation of the whisky.

Whisky is made the traditional way, no computers used here! Deanston is one of the distilleries which does not chill-filter any of its products adding extra flavours to its unique whiskies. The intimate tour is up close personal and ends with tastings of two signature whiskies from the range.

We then head through the Trossachs to the banks of Loch Lomond in the heart of the National Park. We can go for lunch in a traditional lochside pub where you will also have the opportunity to sample locally produced ales or whiskies. Go for a lochside walk and take in the views.

Glengoyne Distillery

Our next distillery visit is Glengoyne, below the rugged hillside of Dumgoyne and the Campie Fells. The volcanic rocks of this hill are the source for the water used in the whisky making process here along with the highest quality unpeated barley.

Glengoyne has the slowest distillation process of any distillery in the world and produces a range of single malts full of fresh, bright, subtle but complex flavours. You can join the Wee Tasting tour which includes tastings of the 12 and fabulous 18 year old.
