Owner description: Glenfiddich, producer of the World's Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, has developed a new tour programme for The Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. Visitors will be able to choose from a tailored range of three paid-for tours. The over-18s-only tours cater for all interests and budgets, from those looking for a unique behind the scenes distillery visit through to whisky enthusiasts seeking a fully immersive experience, and vary in duration from one and a half hours up to three and a half hours. Further details are below: 1. Explorer Tour (£10): a fully guided tour of the distillery and Warehouse 8, including a tutored tasting of four award winning drams. Tours from 9.30Pm - 4.00Pm Glenfiddich Solera Deconstructed (£50): a new hands-on, tailored experience with a full introduction to Glenfiddich's unique Solera system. Visitors can nose several samples and enjoy a tutored tasting of 4 cask strength 15 year old samples before recreating their very own version of Glenfiddich Solera. Two tours daily 2. New Pioneer (£95): a half-day immersive experience for whisky enthusiasts. This in-depth tour offers insight into the marrying process in Warehouse 6, and the opportunity to bottle a 20cl whisky from the Malt Master's personal selection of casks. Finally, guests enjoy a nosing and tasting masterclass in the Grant Family Home, featuring five Glenfiddich whiskies matched with appetisers. One daily tour. We are extremely proud of the fact that Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family-owned today and all tours will continue to offer an unforgettable insight into our unique, family-run heritage. We look forward to welcoming guests to our distillery.

Did the top of the line tour with a friend. Just the two of us on it. The experience was definitely worth it. Some unique aspects compared with other whisky tours we’ve been on. Especially enjoyed the mix of food and whisky at the tasting at the end. Very knowledgable tour guide too. Staff are always friendly and helpful as well.

The Glenfiddich distillery visit is a must-do, if you are planning to visit Scotland for single malt distilleries. Each step of making whisky is described in detail.

Very entertaining tour, one of the giant distilleries. Very familiar with some of their whiskies I was surprised by how many more they make that I never knew. A real eye opener for me. I have a new found respect, they know what they are doing. Very good tour of an illustrious distillery. Don't miss it.

An informative tour of the best selling Single Malt Whisky Distillery in the world. The tour was impressive compared to other distilleries in the amazing volume that Glenfiddich produces; similar to other distilleries in overall process. We went on a Saturday so were not able to see their bottling house in action.

We were able to sample the Glenfiddich 12, 15, and 18--although the pours were on the small side.

We ate at the Malt Barn (their beautiful restaurant on premises)--highly recommended for the whisky menu allowing you to order highly rare drams of Glenfiddich whisky that you may not be able to find anywhere else. The only criticism here being that you will have to pay a high price for them (and food is similar disproportionately high).

The place is amazing and it’s a blast if you love whisky. Old Paul is the best guide you can get, hands down the best tour we’ve been on.
