This morning, I collected guests from central Glasgow and then proceeded on a tour, visiting three local whisky distilleries plus a short visit to Doune Castle. Although each of the distilleries displays unique idiosyncrasies and history, the whisky making process is identical entailing malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation and maturation. We fisrt called in for the 10.00 am tour at Auchentoshan and then moved on to Glengoyne, lunch at the Beech Tree Inn, a brief visit to Doune Castle with tour culminating in a visit to Deanston Distillery. The weather progressively improved after a poor start featuring heavy rain showers. Our route entailed driving through gently rolling countryside of the Trossachs region.
