    Stop At: Aberlour Distillery High Street Aberlour, Banffshire, Aberlour AB38 9PJ Scotland

    From its magical location alongside the River Spey, this small and intimate distillery holds a special place in the hearts of malt lovers.
    James Fleming founded Aberlour Distillery 1879, choosing a location that not only provided a sure supply of pure spring water that flowed over the pink granite of Ben Rinnes, but also a place rooted in ancient times and noted for its magical relationship with water.
    Steeped in centuries of legend and surrounded by the dramatic Highland scenery of Ben Rinnes, the village of Aberlour lies at the very heart of Speyside, where the Lour burn joins the River Spey. The exceptionally pure, soft spring water used for making Aberlour whisky is drawn from nearby natural springs.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Glenfiddich Distillery Station Road, Dufftown AB55 4DH Scotland

    Visit the centuries old famous distillery and discover tall copper tuns, great wooden washbacks and stone-walled warehouses filled with earthy, aged aromas in one of the last independent distilleries in Scotland, with the freedom to maintain our tradition of innovation with a pioneering spirit.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: The Glenlivet Distillery, Glenlivet Distillery B9008 Banffshire, Ballindalloch AB37 9DB Scotland
