With the above distilleries being so new there will not be a drop of Whisky to drink which flowed from their shiny new stills, you'll need to wait a couple of years yet. But, while you wait Scotland boastfully has over 100 established single malt distilleries dotted all over the country, many with welcoming visitor centres who would be more than happy to show you around and offer you a dram for your troubles. Visit Scotland has a handy interactive Whisky Distillery map, which comes in useful when looking to see what distilleries are located in and around a specific location.
