Glengoyne Distillery Tour

Last weekend I had the pleasure of participating in a tour of

Glengoyne Distillery

organised by the fine people at

Billingtons of Lenzie

. We were one of the first (the first?) groups to take the distillery's new Malt Master Tour.  After a taste of their 12 year old we got an in-depth tour of the distillery  from our excellent guide Pauline. Then it was off to the Sample Room to taste five different 17 year old casks before constructing our individual, unique, cask strength, un-chill filtered 200ml bottling to take home. It was superb fun and extremely interesting.  If you're interested in whisky and want more than a standard distillery tour then this is highly recommended.  Before leaving we popped into the distillery shop and I expanded my sherry bomb collection by picking up a bottle of their 21 year old so you can expect some tasting notes in a future blog!
