Glenfiddich Distillery

Back in July, I travelled to Scotland with my friend Bill, and got to participate in my ABCD tour of the UK. That is, another bloody castle, another bloody church, and another bloody distillery.

We threw in some highland games and other tourist activities too!

After we left Aberdeen, we made our way to Dufftown, to see Glenfiddich. I wanted to see Balvenie too, but seriously closed on a Friday?

They offer free hour long tours  every hour. You can take a longer paid tour if you are interested! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and outgoing we got to see most of the operation of distillery, and it was very cool! At the end of the tour, you get to sample a 10, 15, and 18 year old whisky!

Nice Glencairn glass, for those times you tell your wife you only had one 🙂

I am a hobbyist sampler, not affiliated with any distillery. This is offered only as a travelogue  of my trip.
