This morning we departed our lodgings in Inverness and drove S.W. for 75 minutes to our first destination of Balvenie Distillery in Dufftown. The route took us along highways and narrow country lanes with latter close to the River Spey. Many pheasants were in evidence in the Speyside region.
This morning, we departed our lodgings near Luss and drove to Glasgow to join the 10.00 am tour at Auchentoshan Distillery. Auchentoshan is unusual (in Scotland) in that the spirit is triple distilled.Production is close to capacity at nearly 2.0m litres p.a. Our guide was very knowledgeable and escorted us through the entire process from malting and mashing through fermentation, distillation and maturation culminating in a tasting at the well stocked bar.
