This evening, I am posting some images of a recent tour of distilleries located in the Highlands region and Speyside.

We commenced at Tullibardine, Perthshire.

Here is the guide describing the barley.

Glen Grant
Sampling Glen Grant. This was a young and somewhat ‘harsh’ spirit. Not our favorite! However, very popular in Italy, Greece and Spain.

River Spey at Aberlour. Dots in the river are fishermen.

Overall, a good tour affording a useful insight into the whiskey industry.
