When you visit, you’ll discover tall copper tuns, great wooden washbacks and stone-walled warehouses filled with earthy, aged aromas. One of the last independent distilleries in Scotland, with the freedom to maintain a tradition of innovation with a pioneering spirit.
On this tour, you’ll go on a journey through every part of the Glenfiddich tradition, to find out how the world’s most awarded whiskies are created.
Explore every chapter of the Glenfiddich story
Your visit will begin with a short film recounting our five generations of family ownership. It’ll then be followed by an on-foot tour of the distillery with the chance to see how our whiskies are created by craftsmen with generations of understanding. The tour includes a visit to the still house where you can see how our stillmen capture the sweetest part of our distillate from our unusually sized copper stills.
Time is a crucial ingredient
Time matters when whisky making. So, as well as touring the distillery, you’ll visit two of our warehouses where you will explore the generations of gently maturing casks. You’ll also learn how we achieve depth and consistency of flavour throughout our range of exceptional whiskies.
The special conclusion to this visit is a tutored nosing and tasting of four of our world-renowned single malts.
Glenfiddich Solera: Deconstructed
A journey to the heart of a great whisky
Following an introductory video, you will be shown around the distillery and experience the true taste of Glenfiddich.
The secrets of Solera
During your visit to warehouse 8, home to our unique Solera process, you’ll discover what makes our 15 year old such an exceptional dram. You’ll then be taken into our malt masters blending room: here you will enjoy tasting a number of cask-strength samples.
You’ll also have the unique chance to step into our Malt Master Brian Kinsman’s role, preparing your very own version of Glenfiddich 15 year old by combining different cask samples together. Each guest will be able to bottle a small sample of their own creation to keep.
We can only welcome a maximum of 8 guests on each tour and therefore we ask that you reserve places in advance to avoid disappointment.
An in-depth tour for the ENTHUSIAST
After being welcomed by one of our experienced guides, you’ll experience the wealth of craftsmanship and traditions that are still used by us today. You’ll have the chance to learn how we balance these with the innovation that has allowed us to create a range of exceptional whiskies.

Here, you will be invited to fill a 20cl bottle from the cask of your choice, which you will be able to take home, along with a beautiful commemorative book documenting your trip to the distillery.
