A Little's Whisky Tour

Little’s goes the extra mile for whisky tourists.

Spirit of Scotland

There is no better experience that represents the true spirit of Scotland, than the array of world-famous distilleries, so why not let Little's handle the driving, while you sample the very best scotch whisky distilleries around the Highlands, Speyside, the Lowlands, Islay and not forgetting Campbeltown, the 'whisky capital.' 

For Little's, the best way to find out your favourite whisky is to plan a wee whisky tour and try a few drams in the many distillery tours and tasting events.

To help you on the journey, twenty of Little’s chauffeurs have been tutored in the history of Scotch whisky, distilling and tasting, so whilst they drive connoisseurs around the best Scotland has to offer, they can share details of unique stories, processes and experiences.

LITTLE'S MASTER BLENDERS 

Little's staff and chauffeurs love organising and taking clients around some of Scotland's finest distilleries, so here they whisk you through some of their favourite whisky distilleries to provide you with a little inspiration.

  • Lewis Jennings, Reservations Specialist – Jura – “ I like it because it’s a good introduction to whisky, it is easy on the palette and it’s different”
  • Robert McKenna, General Manager - Bunnahabhain - “One of the only whiskies on Islay which is unpeated”
  • Kenneth Good, Operations Director - Distiller’s Edition Lagavulin -“I love it because it has bags of flavour, is a delightful after dinner drink and it is as enjoyable as the finest French cognac.”

To help with some inspiration and information, here is a sample whisky tour around Scotland's world famous Whisky Coast.

Glengoyne Distillery

Famously referred to as Scotland’s most beautiful distillery, Glengoyne whisky is nursed through the stills slower than the average whisky in order to produce a complex, fruity and award-winning taste. All the whiskies produced at Glengoyne are packaged under the Glengoyne brand, however the assortment of whiskies range from 10 to 25 years-old.

Auchentoshan Distillery

Auchentoshan means “corner of field” in old Scots and is home to Scotland’s only triple distilled whisky. Just a stones-throw away from Glasgow city centre, this distillery is often the perfect starting point for those starting their whisky tour in Glasgow. At Little’s we really like the “story of oak” trail which allows any seasoned whisky connoisseur to experience the influence of different casks, as well as the impact of ageing – of the whisky of course.

Kilchoman Distillery

This distillery was the first of its kind to be opened on Islay 124 years ago. Using barley grown onsite at Rockside farm, Kilchoman is one of only six distilleries that still practices traditional floor malting and carries out every aspect of the whisky making process on the island itself. Incorporate a stop at this distillery and you’ll get to visit the beautiful island of Islay.

Glen Scotia

This Scottish whisky distillery was established in 1832. As one of the three distilleries still remaining in the Campbelton region of Scotland, this very distinctive-tasting whisky is well-known. The single malt Glen Scotia produces was extremely valuable to mainland blenders throughout the 90th century and continues to be adored today.

Ardnamurchan Distillery

Ardnamuchan was opened in June 2014 and was coined “Scotland’s greenest distillery.” Located on the shores of Loch Sunart, this whisky is bottled straight from the cask, without colouring or chill-filtration, so that the true and untainted flavours of the whisky are locked in. Here you will be able to try one peated (smoky) and one unpeated (non-smoky) whisky.
