What could be more synonymous with Scotland than whisky?
Aromas of butterscotch, peat and heather mingle with sea salt, spice, and honey.
Amber, pale gold, or straw-coloured, each whisky shares tales of its creation in every sip.
More than a drink, whisky is a spirit – and it’s alive in the truest sense of the word.
John Brown - CEO & Co-Founder of Don't Cry Wolf
Many different factors shape the flavour of a whisky. The way to experience this in its truest form is to stand amongst the waters and lands that give us our materials. Here, you must meet the makers who transform those raw ingredients into whisky using knowledge passed down through generations. When you visit a distillery and learn about their whisky-making process, you are learning about the area’s history.
By travelling with Away from the Ordinary, you will have access to our special local connections.
Not only can we arrange private, behind-the-scenes tours and tastings of your favourite distillery, but we can also introduce you to the new and innovative side of whisky with the lesser-known whisky brands and experiences across Scotland.
