Spirit of the Malt Tour & Tasting  - a connoisseur tour and tasting of the single malt that started it all.

When George Smith founded The Glenlivet Distillery in 1824 he began a tradition of producing the finest single malt whisky - the envy of neighbouring distillers many of whom used the name of Glenlivet themselves. This exclusive tour takes you in his footsteps to find out why The Glenlivet is such an iconic Single Malt Whisky.

Led by one of our experienced guides, this much lauded tour begins with a visit to Josie's Well (the water source for the distillery), followed by a tour of the distillery expansion (opened by HRH Prince Charles in 2010). A tutored tasting of 7 different expressions of The Glenlivet follows, plus a visit to our traditional dunnage warehouse, where rare and aged whiskies are slowly maturing, and there guests will sample a dram drawn straight from one of our aged casks.

Advance reservation recommended. Allow 2 hours 30 minutes - 3 hours. £30.00, Over 18s only please.

The Legacy Experience, an exclusive tasting of old and rare whiskies from the single malt that started it all plus a distillery tour

This exclusive tasting begins with a tour of The Glenlivet Distillery. This is then followed by a tutored tasting, which will take place in the comfort of the Library at The Glenlivet, and will include some extremely old and rare The Glenlivet whiskies. Some of these whiskies are so rare that they have not been bottled for sale, and are not available to taste anywhere else in the world.

The tasting culminates with a dram drawn straight from one of our aged casks in our traditional dunnage warehouse, plus an exclusive gift. Not to be missed!

 Advance reservation recommended. Allow 3 hours . £60.00. Over 18s only please.
