Visit the birth place of the world renowned malt whisky, Glenfiddich, and see how the famous stag came to be. The Glenfiddich distillery is hidden in the heart of the Highlands, a place of breath taking beauty and natural scenery. Glenfiddich is Gaelic for “Valley of the Deer” and is not hard to understand why they named their whisky after it.

Few changes have been made at Glenfiddich since 1886, when William Grant, along with his nine children began work on one of the finest distilleries in the world. The very same silent warehouses and aromatic mash rooms produce this favoured single malt Scotch whisky today.

Visits to the distillery are free, but for real whisky experts and fans of Glenfiddich, the in-depth Connoisseur Tour gives you a greater insight into the distillery and the whisky. The tour starts with a short film about Glenfiddich’s history. From there, senior guides take guests around the distillery including a visit to the atmospheric Solera warehouse. Marvel at the five metre high washbacks, handmade from Douglas fir, and feel the heat from the mash turn as a familiar smell fills the air. Finally, enjoy an exclusive nosing and tasting sessions of the very finest whiskies from Glenfiddich experts.
