Tours, Trails and Tourism
Many distilleries welcome visits by members of the public. It is often necessary to make arrangements in advance, but many distilleries have extensive visitor facilities and do not require prior warning of a visit. You can find out which distilleries you can visit using our Distilleries to Visit guide.
Visiting a distillery allows you to indulge your passion for Scotch and, at the same time, discover the environment and meet the people that have done so much to shape our iconic product.
No matter which distillery you choose to visit - be it an island, mainland, large or small - you can expect great Scotch Whisky, a warm Scottish welcome, and a fabulous day out.
You can also indulge your passion by following one of the many Scotch Whisky trails and enjoy the beautiful Scottish countryside while you make your way to the next distillery.
With all these fun activities to choose from, we do encourage you to drink responsibly and ensure a designated driver accompanies you on your trips if you choose to travel by car. Check out Drinkaware's alcohol awareness guidelines.
