Lagavulin / Islay
The Lagavulin distillery is picturesquely located on the seafront on the Scottish island of Islay. The Hebridean island is considered one of the most popular haunts for the "Scottish Gold", and every year many visit the distillary. The taste-intensive whiskey boasts a strong peaty note and a predominantly smoky taste and is therefore considered a whiskey for connoisseurs. Let the Lagavulin single malt whiskey melt on your tongue, after only 16 years of aging in oak barrels.

Talisker / Isle of Skye
The Talisker distillery is located on the popular holiday island of Isle of Skye and is the last remaining of the seven whiskey distilleries that were once on the Scottish island. The Talisker Single Malt Whiskey contains a rather complex flavor structure and a wide variety of austere aromas, making it one of the most controversial of its kind amongst whiskey lovers. In the vicinity of the distillery, there are also many attractions and natural beauties, such as Dunvegan Castle or the Bay of Talisker.
Strathisla / Highlands
Founded in 1786, the Strathisla distillery is the oldest operating distillery in the Scottish Highlands and is a listed building with its famous pagoda roofs. The whiskey produced here is the popular Blended Whiskey Chivas Regal and is known nationwide for having been delivered to the royal court in Balmoral Castle for more than a century. The Strathisla distillery is one of the smaller distillery in Scotland and is located in the village Keith directly on the famous whiskey trail. Stop in and taste the full-bodied, chocolate-sweet whiskey.
Dalwhinnie / Highlands
Scotland's highest whiskey distillery on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park produces many editions of Classic Malts. The whiskey, which has a fruity aroma and a very round mild taste due to the low temperatures at the place of production, tastes particularly good in combination with a piece of fine chocolate. Another feature that makes the Dalwhinnie Distillery unique in the heart of the Highlands is the two pagoda roofs that serve as visible landmarks and popular photo opportunities for visitors.
