Founded way back in 1797, Glen Garioch Distillery is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries. Located in the historic Valley of the Garioch (17 miles northwest of Aberdeen), the building is open to the public, and daily tours get underway from 11am Monday-Saturday, and 1pm on Sunday. Drink in the rich history of the distillery and the quaint market town of Oldmeldrum, then enjoy a smooth dram while learning of the vast range of single malt whiskies produced at Glen Garioch (pronounced ‘Geery’ apparently). VIP tours and group visits can also be arranged in advance, with admission reasonably priced for the one-hour excursion. After being educated about the storied history of the distillery, take a walk around the visitor centre and browse an array of products and memorabilia in the gift shop, which has some charming wares that are sure to tempt the tourists. The distillery also runs whisky masterclasses, for those wishing to learn their single malts and to appreciate what separates a good whisky from a truly great one. Steeped in history, Glen Garioch Distillery is a haven not just for whisky drinkers, but for anyone fascinated by Scottish history and heritage.
