Glenfiddich in Dufftown
Glenfiddich is one of the most popular malt whiskys in the world, and this is one of the most visited distilleries in Scotland, and is a five star Visit Sotland attraction.

This is the ultimate experience for fans of Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whisky.

It is recommended that you book your Connoisseurs Tour in advance.
