Glen Ord Whisky Distillery Tours

Founded in 1838, Glen Ord Distillery is one of the oldest in Scotland. Here, at the only remaining malt whisky distillery on the remote Black Isle, it’s possible to go on a behind-the-scenes tour to see and understand the process of making a single malt from start to finish. You’ll get to check out the barley maltings as well as the fermentation and distillation methods, wandering among the barrels and huge copper stills as you go. 

As is tradition, at the end of the hour-long tour you’ll get to enjoy a single malt tasting or two. As you sip, you’ll learn how to compare and identify the flavors in whisky. And be sure to make the most of your swig; you won’t be able to buy and enjoy Glen Ord whisky anywhere else in the country, as outside the distillery’s whisky store, the single malt is only sold in Asia.

Practical Info

There are buses from Inverness to Glen Ord village, 30 minutes’ drive away, and the distillery is open all year. An hour-long tour of Glen Ord distillery costs 6 GBP.

From June to August, the distillery is open seven days a week, while from November to February, it's open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is open on occasional Saturdays in March, April, September and October.
