Islay Whisky Tour
private Islay tours, tailor made for small private groups
Islay is a whisky destination like no other. Let us take you on a spectacular whisky tour to Islay from Glasgow or Edinburgh. We'll guide you through west highland landscapes, along glimmering lochs, through sweeping mountain glens and past historic castle ruins, before finally crossing the Sea of the Hebrides to arrive on the unique whisky Isle of Islay.
We'll work with you to create a unique Islay experience, designed to match your own personal favourite whiskies. We'll listen carefully and work closely with you to recommend, agree and pre-book the very best available 'blend' of Islay distillery tours and tasting experiences for you and your group.
On Islay, the possibilities for whisky lovers are endless. Your private Islay whisky tour could see you experience Warehouse Tours. Cask tastings. Whisky & Chocolate. Peat-cutting. Long lunches. Hiking along clifftops. Drams on a secluded beach. Day-long immersive distillery experiences, or simply dropping by for a quick dram.
Islay has dedicated seven centuries to the love of whisky and peat smoke and today there are eight working distilleries to visit. Lagavulin. Laphroaig. Ardbeg. Bruichladdich. Bowmore. Bunnahabhain. Kilchoman. Caol Ila. Each distillery is unique and offers a portfolio of experiences for whisky novices to connoisseurs.
A ninth distillery, Ardnahoe, is set to open soon. And we're looking forward to welcoming back old friend Port Ellen.
Let us know your favourite Islay drams and we'll take you away on a private guided Islay whisky tour, designed just for you.
If you have time to spare, you may even wish to include a detour to Campbeltown or a wee island-hop to Jura.
Use our experience to get the very best from your Islay whisky tour.
