Book This Tour

Join us on this unique tour, combining visits to a whisky distillery, gin distillery and beer brewers while travelling through the stunningly beautiful Cairngorm National Park. Our Cairngorm Whisky, Gin and Beer tour takes our guests over the Slochd summit into the Strathspey and Badenoch region of the Highlands of Scotland. We’ll take tours and tastings at Kinrara Gin Distillery, Cairngorm Brewery and Tomatin Distillery while enjoying the fabulous vistas around the Cairngorm mountains (meaning “blue cairns”). Sit back and relax as one of our fantastic guides becomes the “designated driver” and takes you on a journey of tastes and tales, all from the comfort of our 8-seater vehicle.

Handcrafted with Highland pride and passion…

Tomatin Time…

We start the day with a tour and tasting at Tomatin Distillery, which has been producing malt whisky since 1897. Having been named one of the “best in travel” destinations by Lonely Planet (2019), we’re sure you will enjoy your experience, and of course the soft, mellow notes of this wonderful Highland single malt.

Next stop on our itinerary is a tour and tasting at Kinara Gin Distillery.  Operating since 2017, this wee micro distillery has been going from strength to strength.  Situated in the 12,000 acres of the Cairngorm National Park, nature has provided a wonderful selection of local fauna and berries, which are foraged by the small and passionate highland team.  These are infused with carefully sourced botanicals to create Kinrara’s range of unique and flavoursome dry gins.  Everything from the foraging to the bottling is meticulously done by hand, to create this small batch spirit.

After a break for lunch in Aviemore we will travel up into the Cairngorm Mountains to take in the fabulous vistas. As we ascend the mountain we might come across some reindeer – the only herd in the UK.  Then we’ll descend to Loch Morlich and gaze back across to the beautiful Cairngorm Mountain Range.

Crafted in the Cairngorms…

Established in 2001, the Cairngorm Brewery now has the capacity to produce around 6500ltrs (11,439 pints) of the finest of ale per day!  The beer continues to win awards and accolades- the “Black Gold” Traditional Scottish Stout winning Scotland’s “Champion Beer of the Year” 2016 and 2017.  This is a testament to the small and proud team, dedicated to producing a variety of premium quality ales, using the clear natural waters from the Cairngorm mountains and the freshest of local, highland ingredients.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy the character of this local micro-brewery on your tour and enjoy tasting the wares even more!

This is a tour with a difference.  Beyond the tours that will explain the different processes and production methods used to create three different products – whisky, gin, and beer, this is also a unique opportunity to gain insight into these small local businesses, and indeed into highland life itself.  All of this takes place in some of the most beautiful landscape in Scotland, abundant with the freshest and finest ingredients sourced and used by these local producers.  Which brings us to the best part of the tour, sampling these world class products for yourself. Slainte!

Reviews from our previous guests

  • Craig was our guide for the day and what a great day it was. We were a small group of seven people and everyone hit it off which made it even better. Craig was knowledgeable and really knew his stuff. Saw some amazing sights and laughed a lot that day. Would definitely recommend and use again.

  • Robbie was an excellent Tour driver. Perfect Day out me and my daughter Absolutely loved it. Thank you so much For an excellent Day out.

  • Earth-born companion An’ fellow-mortal!Our guide & driver Rob was the best part of our day. He recited Robbie Burns, sang songs about the Gordon clan, and entertained us with tales of the Orange people versus the Jacobites. He knows every rock band worth its salt, can play the entire guitar solo from Metallica’s Whisky In The Jar, and told us all about salmon fishing on the Beauly. Plus he looked after each of us and made sure we each had a lovely day. We went on this tour to drink whisky but had no idea that the whisky would be overshadowed by a true gentleman and a scholar. We will never forget the sound of “To A Mouse” as recited by Rob, the highlight of our trip. One of Scotland’s finest - we hope we meet him again some day.

  • Omgosh where do I start!! Our tour was amazing, Bill is amazing! He touches bases on everything we wanted to see! He interacted with me on the Outlander books and series, my sister got to see her Highland coos and I got to several stone circles! Take my advice and ask for Bill you will not in any way be disappointed! He surprised us at every turn. And knows Scottish history like nobody’s business!! Thank you Bill I loves our trip with you!!
