The history of Malt Whisky Country goes back at least 250 years.  From the early days of illicit stills nestled in the heather of the high hills, to the pioneers of legal distilling who took a gamble and sold their fine whiskies the world over; the story of Scotch is intertwined with the story of Moray Speyside.

The Malt Whisky Trail is the best way to experience Malt Whisky Country. Here, you’ll meet the masters who have perfected the art of making the whiskies you love. You’ll discover how different whiskies are crafted by generations worth of know-how. You’ll nose whisky straight from a cask, experience the rich smells and aromas and feel the heat of the copper stills, and soak in the atmosphere of a bonded warehouse.
