Sam and his father, Shane, booked a Speyside Lucky Dip whisky tour and were treated to some great whiskies and gins and the sun shone the whole trip. Thanks to these guys for making the tours so much fun and good luck to Sam in his career in banking. We travelled from Edinburgh with a stop off at the Persie Gin distillery in Glenshee. We then travelled through the beautiful landscape of Glenshee and Glen Cluny stopping off in Braemar. Once the guys had settled into their B&B accommodation we enjoyed a meal and some fine whiskies at the Mash Tun in Aberlour. The whisky tour included tours of Glenfiddich, Cardhu, The Macallan and Glenfarclas. The guys enjoyed the distillery tours and also the tastings provided by each distillery before I return to Edinburgh through beautiful Perthshire.
Thanks guys, for such an entertaining trip and thanks for choosing High Spirits Tours. We hope you enjoyed your experience and will provide you with lots of memories. Haste Ye Back!
