Aberdeenshire boasts more historic castles than anywhere else in the UK, none more famous than Balmoral Castle, the Scottish home of the Royal Family conveniently located next to the magnificent Royal Lochnagar Distillery halfway between Ballater and Braemar set in the serene beauty of the Cairngorms National Park.
At the Inverurie Whisky Shop we have quickly established ourselves as one of the North East of Scotland's premier destinations for buying high quality Whisky. We now aim to bring you even closer to Scotland's National Drink through our Whisky Tours!
Focussing our Trips in the North East of Scotland's famous Highland Whisky Region, we have a stunning array of distilleries ready to welcome you in as part of your visit to Scotland.
A classic, 19th century site retaining much of its original charm, the tradition of handcrafting whisky is still being honoured here. Neighbouring Balmoral Castle, the Lochnagar Distillery, produces smooth, rich tasting single malts full of flavour, worthy of a royal seal of approval which was bestowed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1984. A well-bred dram, Royal Lochnagar doesn't dominate but instead offers a light fruity personality that really needs to be tried in its birthplace.
Loosely based on the phrase "foot of the mountain" Fettercairn has been producing some of Scotland's finest malts since 1824 at the foot of the beautiful Grampian foothills. We'd love to tell you about the unique stills that make Fettercairn the uniquely pure spirit that enticed Whyte and Mackay to acquire it in 1973 but we'd rather you experienced them for yourself.
