Today, I am focusing on Scotch Whisky which is one of Scotland’s principal exports. There are about 95 working distilleries in Scotland some of which provide guided tours. Here are some images of a tour of Glengoyne Distillery, near Glasgow.
This image is taken in the visitor shop which displays a wide range of whisky related products-including Glengoyne single malt.
Here is the tour group and guide.

Glengoyne distillery near Strathblane now offers a two hour master blending class where students learn to mix their own blended Scotch Whisky.
Cost of the course is GBP25.00 ($50.00).
Each student’s product is poured into a 100ml bottle to take home. A certificate is also provided. However, the exact recipe remains in Glengoyne’s registry of blends.
Glengoyne’s malt is found in Isle of Skye and Langs blended brands.
