Glengoyne DistilleryUnder 40 minutes from Glasgow, Glengoyne is one of Scotland’s more accessible distilleries. It’s also one of the prettiest, with whitewashed buildings, a hidden glen, and a cascading waterfall. Here, the basic tour begins with a dram of Glengoyne 12 Year Old, followed by a walk through the distillery to see the copper stills, stone warehouse, and beautiful grounds. For something more involved, book the Wee Tasting Tour, which includes a dram of Glengoyne 18 Year Old; the Gold Medal Parade, with tastes of three gold-medal winners; or the Malt Master Tour, for a chance to create your own whisky in the sample room.

Whisky Education at Glengoyne Distillery
A journey to the Highlands isn’t necessary for exploring one of Scotland’s most quintessential pleasures: whisky. Glengoyne Distillery, which has been producing single-malt scotch whiskies since 1833, is just a 20-minute drive from Glasgow city center—and a perfect day-trip destination. The distillery compound itself is idyllic, with tidy whitewashed buildings tucked into the rolling Campsie Hills, and a cascading waterfall that brings water from nearby Loch Lomond (allegedly lending a delicate flavor to Glengoyne whisky). A variety of touring options are offered daily, ranging from basic “Wee Tasting tours” to sessions with a Master Blender, who shows you how to create your own unique blend.
