Taste the Water of Life
Whisky, the water of life and without doubt, one of Scotland's finest exports.
Our first stop is the Deanston distillery. Here you will enjoy the distillery tour before sipping 2 different drams before heading off to the most unique of all Scotland's distilleries. The Glengoyne distillery is located on the Highland Line which divides the Highlands & Lowlands. The distillery produces Highland single malt whiskey, which is matured in the Lowlands, due to the maturing casks being over the Highland line, across the road from the distillery in the lowlands. Here you will enjoy 2 more drams, one to warm you up at the start, and another at the end.
After sampling the national drink it's time to savour the local food. The nearby Beech Tree restaurant is perfect for lunch. Here you can enjoy homecooked food made from locally sourced ingredients.
Our day ends at a Lowlands distillery where after the tour, you will have one last dram and a whiskey & pale ale cocktail, bringing your day to a wonderful end.
