This tour is popular amongst visitors who have never visited a true Scottish Whisky distillery and want to experience what actually goes into the making of “The Water of Life.” This is the closest distillery to Edinburgh city centre and is perfect if you don’t have the time to travel over three hours to Speyside where the majority of whisky distilleries are located. The journey takes less than 30 minutes from the city centre, with the tour and tasting lasting between 1 hour and one hour 30 minutes depending upon whether you opt for the Standard Tour or the Flavours of Scotland Tour. On completion of your tour, your driver will return you to the city centre, stopping off at excellent vantage points for photo opportunities of the city.
