Frequently Asked Questions

YOUR ACCOMMODATION?
Sorry, I cannot arrange your accommodation as I am not an agent, BUT I can make recommendations depending on your chosen location.

DAY TOURS FROM EDINBURGH?
Yes, we can visit Highland Distilleries and, of course, Lowland distilleries in a one-day tour from Edinburgh or Glasgow.

SPEYSIDE / ISLAY?
A one night stay in Speyside (two nights on Islay) is needed to make a visit to these regions worthwhile – and more time will allow you to see more distilleries. For example a one night stay on Speyside would allow visits to 4 distilleries. We cannot visit these regions in a one-day tour from Edinburgh or Glasgow as the distances are too great. Click on the map on the right for more information.

COST OF DISTILLERY VISITS?
I am a fully independent Consultant/Specialist and, as such, I am not employed by any Distillery. I make all the arrangements for visits to your chosen Distilleries but clients must pay entrance fees direct to the Distillery concerned on the day of our visit.

WHAT IS INCLUDED?
The services of myself as Whisky Expert/Ambassador, Keeper of the Quaich and an accredited Scottish Tourist Guide, a professional driver and appropriate luxury transport, all relevant and necessary insurances, unlimited mileage/KM, Distilleries and Itinerary planning, and tutor tasting of several whiskies each day.
