Legends Of The Garioch Experience


This inspirational half day experience  focuses on our unique location, eventful past and the legends who helped influence Glen Garioch as it is today. 

We begin with an expedition to the heart of the Valley of the Garioch, delving into barley fields, water sources and exploring our founders’ heritage, discovering what makes our location so fundamental in what we are. We then return to the distillery for a unique connoisseurs experience including a visit to normally unseen parts of the distillery and a tasting of our single cask, limited release and archive portfolio. This experience concludes with a sensory adventure of flavour with a specially designed regional whisky pairing lunch served in the unique setting of the 800 year old Whisky Cave Bar, Meldrum House Hotel
