WELCOME TO STRATHISLA DISTILLERY - THE HOME OF CHIVAS REGAL
At Strathisla Distillery feel closer to the true spirit of our rich, smooth, Chivas Regal blends and the classic Speyside malt at their heart. As a whisky enthusiast, or a newcomer, your Strathisla tour will be a sensory experience, both memorable and informative – created in a beautiful riverside distillery now in its two hundred and thirtieth year of Scottish Highlands’ history.
Spend an hour – more if you choose – in expert, yet informal company, discovering the ancient craft of distilling spirits, and the rare skills needed for blending them. See and hear how prestigious whiskies are created from simple, natural ingredients. Inhale the distinctive aromas during production and share the many subtleties of each one as you ‘nose’ and then taste them to complete your tour.
