GLENFIDDICH DISTILLERY TOUR
The Glenfiddich distillery tour is one of the most popular whisky tours in Scotland and always makes up one of the distillery stops on our fantastic whisky tours in Speyside.
Based in Dufftown, Glenfiddich is the most successful family owned single malt distillery in the world and the world’s best-selling single-malt whisky. Furthermore, the Glenfiddich whisky recently became the most awarded at the International Spirits Challenge
As is the case with many Scottish whiskies, the Gaelic word ‘Glen’ which means valley, has been used with another local place name or folklore, with ‘Fiddich’ which translates to ‘valley of the deer’. Making ‘GlenFiddich’ well known the world over for generations.
Family run for over 130 years, by the Grant family, Glenfiddich has been a fine ambassador for quality Scottish whisky in all corners of the globe.
Many of our guests are from out-with the UK and there is usually a keen interest in the Glenfiddich distillery tour. The tour at the Glenfiddich distillery encourages guests to learn about the history and the hard work behind a brand they recognise and love. After touring the quaint and historic distillery, our customers’ have the chance to taste a few of the drams with a local whisky expert.
Glenfiddich has managed to keep it’s traditional processes and distillery charm. When you take their tour, you will find copper tuns, impressive washbacks and stone warehouses where the magic of maturation happens.
A range of tours are offered throughout the year, all led by expert guides and featuring a masterclass tasting of at least four different malts. Glenfiddich Distillery also offers a beautiful gift shop and its converted Malt Barn is a fantastic place to sit by the fire and enjoy lunch, or sample your favourite dram from the well-stocked bar.
Another option that we offer at Glenfiddich is time for tastings and lunch in their excellent malt barn. This will usually take place before a Glenfiddich distillery tour, but we can also offer Glenfiddich as your lunch stop for the day which gives you the chance to taste some excellent local produce and of course, sample some whiskies.
The excellent Glenfiddich shop is a great place for souvenirs, collectors’ items, the full core whisky range and distillery exclusive whisky. A fantastic new addition to the shop is the option to create your own personalised bottle.
We currently offer the chance to do a Glenfiddich distillery tour on our Whisky Trifecta Tour, our Speyside Delight Tour and Taste of Scotland Tour. Alternatively, custom tours available also. Plenty of options for a great Glenfiddich distillery tour.
