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.

Huge setup with cafe, bar, tour and merchandise shopping in additions to whisky. Impressive!

A really nice place to visit. Do one of yours with a tasting at the end. Our guide was warm and funny and obviously very enthusiastic about the place. The lounge behind the shop is how a bar really should be. Totally recommended. The tours need booking in advance but not a shop or whisky lounge visit.

Lovely distillery in a fantastic location with a great, informative tour that ended with a tasting. Shop was very well presented and the cafe and whisky lounge looked great. Would definitely recommend the full experience.

We had such a great experience at the Distillery Shop with Steve, who explained everything to us, gave us a Whisky tasting (for free!) and showed us the opportunity to bottle, cork and label our own Glenfiddich Whisky - which we did - of course! It was amazing, funny and will be such a great memory for us! Thank you! ?

Historic Site of the week


The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
