Strathisla Distillery, Seafield Avenue, Keith Banffshire, Keith, AB55 5BS

THE OLDEST WORKING DISTILLERY IN THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND

 

At Strathisla Distillery feel closer to the true spirit of our rich, smooth, Chivas Regal blends and the classic Speyside malt at their heart.

As a whisky enthusiast, or a newcomer, your Strathisla tour will be a sensory experience, both memorable and informative – created in a beautiful riverside distillery now in its two hundred and thirty first year of Scottish Highlands’ history.

Spend an hour – more if you choose to – in expert, yet informal company, discovering the ancient craft of distilling spirits, and the rare skills needed for blending them.

See and hear how prestigious whiskies are created from simple, natural ingredients. Inhale the distinctive aromas during production and share the many subtleties of each one as you ‘nose’ and then taste them to complete your tour.

 

TOURS & TASTINGS

 

Traditional Distillery Tour

The perfect tour for an introduction to whisky making where your guide will take you into the   production areas, explain the distillation process from start to finish and then show you racks of filled whisky casks quietly aging in the cool tranquillity of the traditional bonded warehouse. 

You are invited to join a tutored tasting of four whiskies and learn about the intricate relationship between our single malt and our world-famous Chivas Regal blends.

 

Straight from the Cask (Connoisseur Tour)

Uncover some of the Scotch Whisky World’s hidden gems as we invite you to spend an afternoon sampling and falling in love with six exceptional Limited Edition Cask Strength Single Malts, exclusively selected from the Chivas Brothers’ Portfolio. This, coupled with an in-depth look through our beautiful distillery with one of our most experienced guides, will truly make this an afternoon to remember.

 

The Chivas Cellar Tasting

This exclusive tasting offers you the opportunity to enjoy drams drawn straight from the casks in front of you inside the Chivas Regal Cellar within Warehouse 3 at Strathisla Distillery. All the drams are at natural cask strength and they include a Bourbon barrel of Chivas Regal 12 years old, a hogshead of Chivas Regal 18 years old, a sherry butt of Chivas Regal 25 years old and another single sherry butt containing Strathisla 25 years old. Your tasting will be led by an experienced guide and promises to be an unforgettable experience and will provide an insight into the complexities of the blending of luxury whisky.
