– Malt Master Experience at Glengoyne Distillery
The experience starts with an incredibly in-depth tour of the distillery – a chance for our Distillery Ambassadors to really share their knowledge of our unhurried ‘Glengoyne Way’. Then it gets extra special – you create your own single malt in the Sample Room. You cannot do this anywhere else in Scotland. The Malt Master plays a crucial role in making Glengoyne, balancing the flavours from different casks. You take on that role – and displayed before you will be a selection of cask strength whiskies hand-selected from the Glengoyne warehouse. A taste of each, and you assume the role of the Malt Master straight away – adding a little from a bourbon cask here, bringing out a touch more sherry wood there. Like a chef, you’ll taste and tinker your way to a unique cask strength, un-chill filtered Glengoyne Highland Single Malt. It’s a one-off creation, presented to you in a 200ml Glengoyne bottle, boxed with a label and a record of your recipe.
– Whisky Maker’s Tour at Glenturret Distillery
Discover if you have the skills to be a master whisky maker. You will start with a Glenturret Tour, a journey through our long and remarkable history, where you can learn about the skills of whisky making and why we embrace the words, by hand and heart. Following on from your tour, you will begin to sharpen your own whisky making skills under the expert guidance of our hosts. You will learn the secrets of whisky blending and be able to create your own unique whisky to take home and enjoy. Your signature dram will be placed in a specially designed presentation box, along with some beautiful whisky related gifts.
