Corinne’s group love gorgeous Royal Deeside and Glenshee

A great big “Thank You” goes to a group of 8 guests from the Aberdeen area who had a fabulous bespoke tour along Royal Deeside, using both our luxurious minibus and “Morag the Morgan”. Our visits to the folks at Royal Lochnagar and Persie Gin went down very well and everyone was very impressed with the gin demonstration and meeting “Phil the Still” (pictured)! The trip also included a lunch stop at the Invercauld Arms in Braemar.

Our return journey to Aberdeen was through the idyllic Glenisla.

A fun day was had by us all. I hope to see you back again for another adventure. Thanks again to you all!

Distilling is said to have been practised at Balblair as long ago as 1749, but its formal history begins in 1790, when John Ross established a distillery at Balblair Farm, about half a mile from the current site.
