The Malt Whisky Trail

With its clean clear water, benign climate and gentle upland terrain, Speyside is the heart of Scotland's whisky industry.
 
Plenty of distilleries are located in attractive historic buildings and go to some lengths to provide an engaging experience for visitors. This usually involves a tour around the essential stages in the whisky making process, though for real enthusiasts a number of distilleries now offer pricier connoisseur tours.
 
There are eight distilleries on the Malt Whisky Trail. All offer a guided tour which is either free or at a price which will include a voucher redeemable against a bottle of whisky from the distillery shop. All tours usually round off with a tasting!
