The Glenlivet

*Winner of the Best Visitor Attraction Award at the 2013 Scottish Thistle Awards*

Revered by connoisseurs, flattered by imitators, The Glenlivet can only be made in one particular spot, in a single glen, in the heart of Scotland's malt whisky-making country. Explore the turbulent history of the whisky smugglers, delve into the intriguing mysteries of distilling and sample the golden magic that is The Glenlivet.

We also have an exhibition which gives you a fascinating insight into the history of The Glenlivet, a gift shop selling a wide range of whiskies and whisky-themed gifts, and a coffee shop which serves snacks and light refreshments including home-baking, homemade soup, filled rolls and baked potatoes. Also available is the opportunity to fill your own personalised bottle of The Glenlivet.
