Celebrate All Things Whisky

Inverness Whisky Tours, Tastings and Events

Here in our wee corner of the world, mastering the single malt is more than a way of life. It’s a right of passage. In fact, we love our whisky so much, that we’ve dedicated a whole month to it. May is Whisky Month here in Scotland. And to celebrate, we’re toasting all the wonderful Inverness whisky tours, whisky tastings and whisky events you can do with the Kingsmills Hotel.

Inverness Whisky Tours

Scotland is made up of 5 distinct whisky-producing regions – Islay, the Lowlands, Campbeltown, Speyside and (of course) the Highlands. And since the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness is set in the heart of the Highlands, we are close to all your favourite Highland and Speyside whisky distilleries. Tomatin and Glen Ord are the closest whisky distilleries to Inverness. And they both offer wonderful Inverness whisky tours throughout the year.

Just north of Inverness, you will find Dalmore and Glenmorangie. Where the chance to explore the distilleries is almost as special as the whisky they create. And finally, since Scotland’s largest whisky-producing region (Speyside) is right on our doorstep, the Kingsmills Hotel offers bespoke Speyside Whisky Tours. With the perfect blend of luxury accommodation and chauffer-driven tours to your favourite Speyside distilleries, you can enjoy a unique taste of Scottish whisky and distilling excellence.
