    We invite your clients to the heart of Scotland’s whisky-making country to see it for themselves. Here, they can experience the rare conditions of our remote location. They’ll learn how our founder, George Smith, established the first licensed distillery in the parish of Glenlivet, and defended it from smugglers. They’ll see the unique lantern stills that help shape the spirit’s flavour, and they’ll taste our single malt straight from the cask.

    Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

    This classic tour offers your clients a sensory introduction to the whole, finely-crafted process of whisky-making in our modern distillery. They’ll see the racked casks of slowly maturing malts in a traditional bonded warehouse and then – for guests aged 18 or over – an invitation to toast George Smith, with a dram of The Glenlivet, on the very land he once farmed, nearly two hundred years ago.
