The Balvenie Tour

All good things come to he (or she) who waits…and man, that happened to me. I’ve been trying to visit The Balvenie Distillery since mid 2016, and I even had to cancel a tour last year as work got in the way. Today that changed. Today I found myself spending rather a long time in whisky heaven…and I loved every…

A Trip to Speyside

Sunday saw me taking a trip to Speyside…well it’s the right thing to do when it’s on your doorstep surely? It really was a gorgeous sunny day and I doubt I’ll ever tire of the stunning views that greet you, as well as on the drive there. It was supposed to be a quick bite of lunch, however if you…

Lakes Distillery

This, if you didn’t know is a new distillery which ran its first spirit on 16th December 2014 and officially opened that year. The tour itself costs £12.50 (billy no mates here went alone, but a voucher can be used with another…

The Edradour

The 12th of August “The Glorious Twelfth” saw me visiting this distillery which is located just outside Pitlochry in Perthshire. Edradour is”world renowned as the smallest traditional distillery in Scotland and arguably the most unique. Dating back to 1825, Edradour, stands alone as the last stronghold of handmade single malt whisky from a farm distillery still in production today”. I had…
