The playwright George Bernard Shaw said that ‘whisky is liquid sunshine’.
Feel the warmth with today’s Big Deal on a Master Blender Session at Glengoyne Distillery, just outside of Glasgow.
Within easy reach of Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh, Glengoyne Distillery, producers of Scotland’s slowest-distilled single malt whisky, is situated in the picturesque Blane Valley.
Scotland’s most beautiful distillery
A traditional working distillery, its features include a lovely pagoda roof, waterfall and secret glen. Are you beginning to see why it is often said to be Scotland’s most beautiful distillery?
Today’s Big Deal is for one person to explore Glengoyne distillery with a Master Blender Session.
So much more than the standard distillery tour, the Glengoyne Master Blender Session will take you to the very heart of the whisky industry.
Glengoyne’s spirit is nursed through the stills at about one third of the usual rate to create the complex, fruity, award-winning spirit of which the distillers are so proud.
Create your very own blended whisky
The tour includes a tasting of the Glengoyne 12 year old, Langs Select 12 year old blend and the award-winning 18 year old Highland Single Malt
Your experience will culminate in you creating 100ml of your very own blended scotch whisky, which will be bottled for you to take home.
