The Highland Malts

Spend a day in picturesque Ross-shire visiting two world class malt whisky distilleries blended with a leisurely lunch at an award winning country house hotel. You will have the opportunity to sample a range of delectable Highland malts making for an informative and enjoyable day out.

We set off from Inverness to travel over the Moray and Cromarty Firths to Ross-shire where we visit the first distillery of the day, The Dalmore. Built in 1839, the distillery has an interesting history and as you tour the facility the knowledgeable guide will explain the skills and expertise required to create their fabulous malt whiskies. The tour includes a dram of their rich and sweet 12 year old malt.

We make our way up the leafy drive to Kincraig Castle Hotel, an award-winning 4-star country house hotel where you can appreciate stunning views over the beautifully maintained gardens and farmland, to the Cromarty Firth and Black Isle. Here you can enjoy a three course lunch expertly prepared using the freshest locally sourced ingredients and afterwards relax in the Snug which boasts over 100 malt whiskies plus a good selection of wine, craft beers, spirits and cocktails.

We continue the day with a visit to the Glenmorangie Distillery located on the shores of the Dornoch Firth. Here a friendly guide will show you around the distillery and explain the process of creating their award-winning Glenmorangie Original. After the tour you are invited into the tasting room where you can enjoy a tutored dram of their elegant and floral 10 year old Original Single Malt.

Before returning home, you have the opportunity to take part in a tasting of up to 3 additional drams from Glenmorangie’s Core, Prestige and Private editions. Prices start at only £3 for this experience so please request this at the time of booking so that time may be made available.
