This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Glen Ord Distillery Inverness, Muir of Ord IV6 7UJ Scotland

There are a number of different options at Glen Ord from a wander round their exhibition (£3pp) to their Grain to Glass tour (£100pp) but whatever you decide to do we recommend you try some of the whiskies under the Diageo brand. Two of our go to everyday whiskies are the Lagavulin 16 and the Oban 14 both very different but delightful whiskies or if we're celebrating both of these distilleries have fantastic distillers editions. Glen Ord specialises in the Singleton of Glen Ord 12, 15 and 18yrs which are also all worth a taste.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Dalmore Distillery, Alness IV17 0UT Scotland

Next up is the Dalmore Distillery with it's distinctive stags head branding and a line up of whiskies to make any luxury brand weak at the knees. Their 12yr old has been a staple since Gavin was old enough to drink whiskies and maybe even a wee bit before as it was the closest distillery to his family home with only 3 miles separating their front doors. This relationship has evolved over the years and where there used to be a 12yr old Dalmore now sits a bottle of the King Alexander III. If you're not familiar with this whisky (you will be by the time you leave) the King Alexander III is the product of a unique six cask finish (ex-bourbon casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques) it really shouldn't work, but it does. So very, very, well.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Glenmorangie Distillery, on the A9 Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ Scotland

You will be guided around the distillery, learning about our flagship whisky, Glenmorangie Original, which is matured exclusively in the finest first and second fill white oak-bourbon casks for a minimum of ten years creating a smoother, rounder whisky. Throughout our Original Tour we will share with you the steps we take in the pursuit of perfection and in creating our whisky. And of course no tour would be complete without tasting a dram of this award winning whisky!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Dornoch Castle Hotel, Castle Street, Dornoch IV25 3SD, UK

ere are lots of options but our favourite is the Royal Dornoch Golf Hotel which serves delicious Highland fare with spectacular views out over the world class golf course and beach. While visiting Dornoch it would be rude not to drop by the Dornoch Castle Hotel which is home to one of Scotland's newest distilleries and one of the finest whisky collections in the Highlands. What's even better is they're all on the menu and and available to purchase by the dram. Sunny day? Then it's out to their gardens to enjoy a whisky in the sunshine or if it's a "wee bit chilly" then the castle bar is an extremely pleasant place to enjoy a fine single malt in the company of locals.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Balblair Distillery, Edderton IV19 1LB Scotland

Well alrighty then lets make our way to Balblair Distillery for a taste of their non age statement whiskies with a difference. Balblair doesn't tell the whisky when it's ready, instead they let the whisky do the talking and only bottle it when the whisky is at "the peak of perfection" as they put it. You can bottle your own whisky at Balblair from a single cask, a nice wee touch and a great memory of your time in Scotland.

Gavin did a great job sharing how to enjoy Whiskey. Glenmorangie was a perfect spot to try some awesome Whiskey and the spots along the way were great as well!

Highly recommend Gavin and Invergordon Tours. We did the ultimate highland whisky experience (in the BMW M5...naturally). Gavin was an amazing resource and guide maximizing every moment and ensuring we had a very rich and VIP experience at all of our stops. We simply wouldn’t

Perfect way to explore the Highlands from Invergordon. We had almost ten hours to spend and where therefore looking for a chance to get an essence of the Highlands in a single day (Whisky, landscape, castles, etc.). Gavin recommended a tour which fitted perfectly. Luckily enough

One of the best days I have had in my home country. Born and bread in the Highlands of Scotland, for 30+ years I am sorry to say that I had never been to a distillery before, and after going on a tour with Gavin this is the only way I would do it now. From being picked up

We booked Gavin on a friends recommendation and were not disappointed. Our trip from start to finish was excellent and I owe this all to Gavin’s spectacular service. We were picked up promptly at the arranged spot and warmly welcomed by a fully kilted highlander (Gavin) Our
