Autumn Distillery Tour Guide - Part 1

September 06, 2016

There are few things more beautiful to us than the combination of Scotland during the Autumn, with its mixture of beautiful gold and brown colours dominating the landscape, and the amber-hued sights, stories, and distinctive aromas of a traditional Scottish distillery tour.

Here at Angel’s Share Glass, we are proud to supply some of the finest distilleries in Scotland, and have created a 2-part distillery tour that includes world-famous sights. They are ideal to visit in Autumn because of the stunning views, opportunities to sample the local produce, not to mention discover some of our bespoke designs – as all distilleries in our guide stock Angel’s Share Glass.

Glen Moray

This historic Speyside distillery has been producing some of the finest single malt scotch whisky since starting production almost 120 years ago in September 1897.

Tradition is the name of the game at this Speyside distillery who have been brewing their legendary Speyside Single Malt Whisky by hand using the same spring water rising in the nearby Romach Hills since 1898.

Famous Grouse Experience

...and what an experience it is! As Scotland’s oldest, and perhaps most iconic, whisky distillery, the Famous Grouse is recognised worldwide as a symbol of the truly unique, and special nature of traditional Scottish whisky production.

Cragganmore

Regarded as one of the most complex and characterful malt whiskies of the venerated Speyside region, Cragganmore is one of the remaining few distilleries that boast flat top stills which contributes to it’s unique character and rich layers of flavour.

Historic for being the only malt distillery pioneered by a woman, Cardhu is also part of the world famous Malt Whisky Trail which is made up of eight of the most revered distilleries in the Speyside area.

Glen Ord

Best known for its eponymous 12-year-old single malt whisky, and for being one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland - founded in 1838 - Glen Ord is also the only remaining single malt scotch whisky distillery on the Black Isle.

Aberlour

This Speyside distillery, particularly famous for its 10 and 15-year-old malts offers a number of  bespoke tours and tastings, each one tailored to provide a unique whisky experience.

Glenlivet

Describing itself as ‘the single malt that started it all’, Glenlivet is revered by connoisseurs, and is the biggest selling single malt whisky in the United States as well as the second biggest selling single malt globally.

The only distillery on the Isle of Arran and producing a celebrated single malt for over 150 years, this eponymous distillery features a number of whisky tours and tastings year-round.
