Each whisky is blended using ancient processes, refined over centuries. Visit one of our fascinating whisky distilleries near Inverness and Loch Ness and enjoy an authentic taste of Scotland.

You can book a tour with workers and experience the different stages of the whisky-making process. Then, at some distilleries, you’ll have the chance for you to fill your own bottle straight from the cask. Each distillery produces whisky in their own unique way, and you’ll find a visit fascinating and informative. Just don’t forget to book a taxi for the return journey! But if you are lucky enough to have a designated driver for the day, you can enjoy your taster drams later with your take home “Drivers Drams”.
Whisky is made from fermented grain mash and a variety of grains and aged in wooden casks. It has been a firm favourite tipple in many pubs, restaurants, hotels and homes over the centuries. Now, thanks to the introduction of biomass boilers, some of the distilleries have also become more sustainable and energy-efficient. Therefore, this is great for protecting the beautiful surrounding natural environment.
Many whiskies produced from the distilleries around Inverness and Loch Ness can be sampled in the local pubs and bars. Some of our local bars even run whisky clubs, evenings, tastings and history nights. Join the Highland Malt Whisky Experience held in Inverness, weekly from spring to autumn. A great evening addition to your day with a guided whisky tour at one of our Scottish distilleries across Inverness and Loch Ness.
