Dufftown itself is situated between Inverness and Aberdeen, with many famous distilleries within a few miles of the shop. The Whisky Shop can be found just yards from the clocktower right in the centre of Dufftown. We are open all year round
Monday to Saturday: 10am to 6pm
Sunday: 10am to 5pm (Easter to end of October)
At the shop we offer whisky tastings for groups of beginners to experts. We tailor our tastings to give you the best experience by agreeing a theme such as “Around Scotland” or “The different tastes of Speyside”, or just picking whiskies you would like to try. Give us a call or drop us an email if you are interested. Sorry, you must be over 18 years old to attend.
Dufftown is a fabulous place to have our shop. They say round here that Rome was built on 7 hills but Dufftown was built on 7 stills. We currently have 6 operational distilleries in town – not bad for a population of 1200 people. So there is no where else so soaked in the sights, sounds, smells and history of whisky and no wonder why people call it The Whisky Capital of the world.
We run special whisky events during the two whisky festivals held in the area each year. Check out www.spiritofspeside.com for details of The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival which is held in May. For The Whisky Shop Dufftown Autumn festival held in September our events are listed on our own website.
