Glenfiddich Distillery

Dufftown, United Kingdom

Glenfiddich is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky produced by William Grant & Sons in the Scottish burgh of Dufftown in Moray. Glenfiddich means 'valley of the deer' in Scottish Gaelic, which is why the Glenfiddich logo is a stag.

The Glenfiddich Distillery was founded in 1886 by William Grant in Dufftown, Scotland, in the glen of the River Fiddich. The Glenfiddich single malt whisky first ran from the stills on Christmas Day, 1887.

Shop has a lot of whiskey that I've not seen before. However you can find some better deals online. Parking is free. The distillery is closed to visitors in the winter however the gift shop is open.

Located in a beautiful valley, they offer a tour of the distillery for 20 pounds and will give you 4 shorts of Glen whiskey as well , they will tell you the brief history and how they make their signature single malt

In addition to the whisky of course, we were very pleasantly surprised to see a wide variety of local/Scottish-made fashion accessories and other products. We ended up buying most of our souvenirs from here! Like scarves, hats, gloves, and other hand made items. What a fantastic shop!

The Trulli of Alberobello

The trulli, typical limestone dwellings of Alberobello in the southern Italian region of Puglia, are remarkable examples of corbelled dry-stone construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. These structures, dating from as early as the mid-14th century, characteristically feature pyramidal, domed, or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs. Although rural trulli can be found all along the Itria Valley, their highest concentration and best preserved examples of this architectural form are in the town of Alberobello, where there are over 1500 structures in the quarters of Rione Monti and Aja Piccola.

The property comprises six land parcels extending over an area of 11 hectares. The land parcels comprise two districts of the city (quarters or Rione Monti with 1,030 trulli; Rione Aia Piccola with 590 trulli) and four specific locations. 

Trulli (singular, trullo) are traditional dry stone huts with a corbelled roof.
