This guided whisky tour tells the story of Scotland’s most famous product. A highlight of these tours is the Diageo Claive Vidiz Scotch Whisky Collection, which is the world’s largest collection of Scotch whisky, encompassing almost 3,500 individual bottles. This tour starts with the Whisky barrel car ride, which takes guests through the production and maturation process of Scotch whisky. This is followed by a sensory journey of Scotland including an introduction to Scotch whisky aromas. Next, enjoy a tutored appreciation of Scotch whisky along with a viewing of the world’s largest collection of Scotch Whisky (guests under 18 years of age will be given Irn Bru, a Scottish soft drink). The gift of a crystal tasting glass is included with this tour. If you select the gold tour option, after enjoying a full guided tour, you'll compare and contrast 4 regional single malts whilst relaxing in the beautiful McIntyre Gallery.
