The Masterclass

5 hours / £160.00

The most in-depth whisky experience in Scotland

This is a wonderfully immersive day of nosing, swirling and tasting.

Over the course of the five hours, you’ll taste five Glengoyne whiskies, plus a range of sherries. You’ll also create your own single malt.

There’s a full tour of the distillery, of course – where you’ll explore far more detail than our other tours. You’ll also see into the Glengoyne warehouses.

After a day of exquisite flavours, you’ll leave with the coveted knowledge of a master blender.

The test of taste

First, we put your nose to the test, but not with whisky: each of the 20 tiny bottles in front of you holds a unique scent, from lavender to pear drop.

In fact, it’s a test developed by the Scotch Whisky Association to recruit master blenders. It’ll give a full vocabulary of scents as you taste the 12 Year Old and the 18 Year Old single malts, our selection of specially chosen Single Casks, and a range of sherry samples too.

Tasting such a broad range will give you an unmatched insight into the whiskies that we craft – each one with a distinct character. We provide a light lunch too.

The malt master

And there’s more. You’ll create your own Glengoyne Highland Single Malt. It’s exactly the same as the Malt Master tour – with samples from five very different Glengoyne single casks.

With everything you’ve learnt over the day, you’ll have a clear idea of what you like, and what to look for. Taste and nose, add and stir – we’ll let you create your very own 200ml bottle of absolutely unique whisky. Created by you, presented in a Glengoyne bottle, boxed with a label.

It’s a fine end to a remarkable day.

At the end of the visit, guests are presented with a 200ml bottle of their one-off creation, a bespoke gift and Master Class certificate.
