Learn The Secrets of Scottish Whisky
The Ben Nevis Distillery is one of the oldest in Scotland having been established in 1825, and they know everything there is to know about making whisky. Having perfected their recipes for almost 200 years, you can judge how they've done by trying their single malts, or their vatted malts, which are made with a blend of malt and grain distilled whisky.
After testing your whisky palate with a dram or two, spend some time hiking through the dramatic landscapes of the West Highlands, or walking through the peaceful glens. Sit back, relax and take in the spectacular views of Loch Linnhe, or round off a traditional whisky tasting with a traditional Scottish dish like haggis, neeps and tatties at a local bar or restaurant.
