The Singleton of Glen Ord

The Singleton is best known for its focus on slow craft that creates a rich, vibrant and perfectly balanced single malt. Sitting on the famous North Coast 500 route and readily accessible by bus or train from Inverness, the distillery team works closely with suppliers from around the area to provide visitors with stellar local produce, and immersive and memorable whisky tasting experiences.

Treat yourself or someone you love to unique luxury by securing a slot during one of The Singleton experiences, priced from £22-£250.

The Singleton Pairing Experience is a particular highlight. Priced from £60, the guided tasting consists of whiskies and canapes featuring venison, salmon, duck breast and more, and have been perfectly paired to showcase the five Singleton expressions and fine Scottish Highland cuisine, perfect for the foodie in your life.

Prepare your palate for: Singleton Venison & guacamole served in a spinach cone; Singleton smoked salmon crème fraîche & yuzu served on a Stag Bakery oatcake ; smoked duck breast with bramble jam & Scottish Crowdie served on a crostini ; chocolate and whisky mini tart with passionfruit pearls; Macaron, paired with five whisky samples.



Clynelish offers the warmest of welcomes to the coastal Highland home of Johnnie Walker, where the rich ‘waxy’ highland malt featuring tropical fruit and sweet honey notes, is produced. The distillery has a lot to offer, from immersive tours, to cocktails, drams, and coffees with a breathtaking view. Experiences at Clynelish are priced from £15-£65.

The signature experience at Clynelish is one you don’t want to miss. Priced from £21, the Clynelish Flavour Journey promises an intriguing mystery and novel exploration of flavour where you’ll discover the distillery’s dramatic story and its field-to-glass whisky process. The complete sensory tour concludes with a tutored whisky tasting of drams, a highball and a sweet surprise as you overlook the surrounding landscape.
