Best Distillery Tour

WINNER: DALWHINNIE DISTILLERY, HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND

With so many scotch distilleries having visitor centres and offering tours, this Highland single malt whisky distillery, owned by drinks giant Diageo, chose chocolate to differentiate itself. Every visitor is offered a taste of high-quality chocolate to show how it complements scotch whisky and specifically the Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old. There are five tour options, ranging from £6 to £19. It is seen as a great way to identify and explain flavours – and get people to taste scotch.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: PULTENEY DISTILLERY, HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND

Another slightly quirky way to get people to visit and learn about the brand, its history and its environs, Pulteney is a relatively new kid on the block. It first opened its doors to the public in 2000 and showcases itself as the ‘seafaring spirit of Wick’, so there is a strong emphasis on the maritime nature and heritage of the area.
