Pre-Christmas Whisky Tour

A big Thank You! to Ken and Marion from Calgary, Alberta, Canada who found me and got a whisky tour in the beautiful East Highlands and Speyside. What is there not to like to go round Scotch distilleries on a frosty, crisp, winter’s morning in North Scotland? We made visits to the fruity, sherry-deliciousness of GlenDronach followed by a drive over to Speyside in the winter sun. We then stopped off for some great Cullen Skink (smoked haddock chowder) and followed that up with a comprehensive tour of the Aberlour Distillery and the space-age, Macallan. Marion had never had whisky before and Ken thought we may have created a monster as she loved the warming, malty goodness the distilleries were giving out. They loved the¬†difference between the distilleries from small to medium to large! All in, we had a great day and their custom was greatly appreciated. Hope to see you again soon! Safe journey home!
