  • This sojourn is truly an insider’s tour. Our expert leader, Ronnie Berri, gains us access to venues and locations not open to the typical visitor. His inimitable knowledge of and passion for Scotland and Scotch Whisky come alive in the stories he shares and the wisdom he passes on during our travels and visits. Ronnie begins each morning with a briefing, preparing us for the days’ events, which typically include distillery visits and (of course!) tastings. In total, we visit 15 distilleries in four, main whisky-producing regions – The Highlands, The Lowlands, Islay, and Speyside. This expansive tour allows us to take in the dramatic and varied Scottish landscape and truly appreciate the inextricable ties between the land and the Scotch produced from it.

    Although this sojourn offers an abundance of guided experiences, participants also have time to sightsee and to explore on their own. The combination of these experiences, interwoven with the sheer beauty of the Scottish landscape and the hospitality of the Scottish people, make each day anything but typical!

    Whisky-and-Food Pairing Dinners
    Appreciating Scotch is also an enriching social experience and is best explored in good company. That is exactly why we include a number of opportunities to enjoy the spirit as a group during both meals and engaging presentations. Our whisky-and-food pairing dinners offer the perfect atmosphere to relax and unwind. During these special meals we continue our discovery through discussion while enjoying local and regional foods specially paired with Scotch Whisky in mind. One dinner even includes a special presentation on cooking with Scotch.
