12th June 2013
Glenmorangie invites you to come and enjoy a special Open Day in the Highlands.
On June 15 and 16 families can enjoy seeing Scotland’s tallest stills in action at The Glenmorangie Distillery – 34 miles north of Inverness on the A9, near Tain, IV19 1PZ.
The weekend-long programme of free tours, tastings and events will lift the lid on the production process behind Scotland’s favourite single malt.
Visitors will be able to meet and talk with the Men of Tain – the select group of craftsmen entrusted with the secrets of the Glenmorangie Distillery since 1843.
The distillery’s 12 copper-necked stills will also be in operation, the necks of which stand at over 16ft high – the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe. They are famous for producing the light, delicate, floral flavours that go in to making Glenmorangie such a renowned malt whisky.
Doors open from 10am until 4.30pm on Saturday June 15 and Sunday June 16.
There are two types of free tour available. Pre-booking is essential for Tour A which lasts three hours and starts at 10.15am and 12.30pm. As well as the Distillery it takes in such highlights as the Hilton of Cadboll Stone, Glenmorangie House and the Tarlogie Spring.
Tour B will take place every half hour from 10am. Booking is advisable but not essential. Visitors will see the mash house, still house, warehousing, and enjoy a whisky tasting and be given a tasting glass to take away as a memento.
