Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre
Celebrate Scotland's national drink with a visit to this fascinating center, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre. The exhibition covers three floors and a one hour guided tour, running every 20 minutes, takes you through the distillation and blending processes, explaining the history of whiskey production and consumption. The tour can be given in eight languages - English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish - and Braille scripts are available. Children will enjoy the special barrel ride through a series of tableaux depicting three centuries of whiskey making. The center also features the Whiskey Bond Bar and Bistro and a gift shop. Check the website for seasonal timings.
It was all too short and too much like being "taught". Could have done with more tastings and more instruction on the whisky as opposed to how it was made. Barrel ride was very primitive when compared with similar experiences in USA and Europe.
A very interesting and educational tour., entertaining as well as instructional. Very well thought out and constructed providing an enjoyable diversion. Well done. (I particularly enjoyed the wee dram!)
