Connoisseurs and collectors from all over the world recognise Craigellachie to be the epicentre of single malt whisky distilleries.

Many of our guests make the annual pilgrimage to this Mecca; Craigellachie is to whisky what Reims is to Champagne.

There are 5 distilleries within a radius of 4 miles that have visitor centres. There are a further 20 odd distilleries within a 12 miles radius, some with visitor centres.

Craigellachie is also home to the only working cooperage that has a visitor centre.

Seeing the skilled coopers making barrels is quite fascinating.

 

 

Whilst you may not be a whisky drinker it is still very worthwhile having a tour of a distillery or the cooperage.

The costs are minimal and infact the tour of Glenfiddich (about 1 hr) is free and you get a complimentary dram at the end!!

Connoisseurs Tours are available at many Distilleries such as:

Aberlour, Balvenie and Macallan

(all within 4 miles) but Advance Booking is Essential.

 

 

The three bars in Craigellachie cater well to the whisky devotee

It is possible to sample around 600 whiskies if you have the time
