At High Spirits Tours, we ahve already started our 2019 adventures in fantastic style. Some happy Welshmen, some not so happy Scots and sole Canadian asked us to take them to the Scottish Highlands, Perthshire and Fife after the 6 Nations rugby game between Wales and Scotland. They made the most of their trip to Scotland by extending their stay by a couple of days and visiting some whisky distilleries, Kingsbarns and Blair Athol and have a fantastic gin experience at Persie Gin near Blairgowrie. The highlight for many was the tour of St Andrews Old Course. The whole tour, tailor-made by ourselves was very much appreciated by our guests and we were happy they were happy!
Why not take a look at our website and see if we can tempt you into a similar adventure. We aim to enusre that you will enjoy it as much as our rugby fans did!
The earliest reference to distilling in the Scottish islands is found in the Statutes of Iona of 1609, where it records the charter that allowed islanders to distil but not import “aqua vitae!
