The Glenmorangie Distillery


The name Glenmorangie means ‘Glen of Tranquillity’, which is a particularly good description for its calm and scenic location. The distillery was licensed in 1843, and has since built an outstanding reputation at home and abroad. The tour will introduce you to the natural elements and the time-honoured traditional skills which make Glenmorangie so special, the uniquely hard mineral rich water rising from the Tarlogie Springs, the gleaming swan-neck copper stills, the tallest in the Highlands and the casks of American oak. In the visitor centre you can learn about the heritage of Glenmorangie and purchase some of the fine whisky that was made in the distillery you just walked through.

Hours: Mon – Fri 9:00 – 17:00 daily

June – August: Sat 9:00 – 16:00, Sun 12:00 – 16:00

Glen Ord Distillery

Muir of Ord

A visit to Glen Ord, on the neck of land linking the Black Isle to the Highlands west of Inverness, is a delight to both the eye and the taste buds. Here you can see the distillers at work, shaping the character of the malt with the magical combination. The pure, cool waters of the famous ‘White Burn’ combine the peaty spring water and soft rainwater of two lochs in the hills high above the distillery. Upon tasting your ‘perilously drinkable’ complimentary dram, tradition has it you’ll find it hard to resist a repeat experience.

Hours: Mar – Oct: Mon – Fri 9:30 – 17:00
