This part of the new tour will allow guests to explore first-hand the the beautiful and richly fertile land surrounding Oldmeldrum which has been famed for centuries as the ‘Granary of Aberdeenshire’.

Guests will then return to the distillery where Glen Garioch’s long standing tradition of craftsmanship and the charm and passion of the people who make it are highlighted with the connoisseur’s journey, which includes a visit to some normally unseen parts
of the distillery and an exclusive tasting of the single cask, limited release and archive portfolio.

The unique experience will then conclude with a specially selected regional lunch and whisky pairing, served in the unique setting of the 800 year old Whisky Cave Bar at Meldrum House Country House Hotel.
