The basics

One of the largest distilleries in Speyside, Glenlivet produces nearly 6 million liters of single malt each year, while still maintaining many traditional production methods, albeit on an industrial scale. You can get a glimpse into these methods with a visit to the distillery for a guided tour and tutored tastings of various drams; visitors can also bottle their own single malt to take home. Its award-winning visitor center has an exhibition showcasing the development of the brand as well as a café selling whisky-drenched cakes.

Glenlivet is one of the “big three” Speyside distilleries—along with Macallan and Glenfiddich. You can visit all three in one day with a guided tour leaving from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, or many other locations. Visiting as part of a tour allows you to avoid worrying about driving after indulging.
