Connoisseur Tour - the ultimate whisky tasting experience


“A philosopher is a man who can look at an empty glass with a smile” – Tommy Dewar.

“My friends and I took the Connoisseur Tour and did not regret spending the extra money. We felt it was really good value for what we got…we enjoyed being able to take our time with the tasting without feeling rushed”.TripAdvisor

Take a guided tour of Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery to discover how we make the beautifully balanced single malt at the heart of Dewar’s Scotch. Visit the warehouse to learn more about the angels’ share and our unreasonable commitment to quality – double aging our whisky for a richer, smoother flavour.

Return to the whisky lounge for a comparative whisky tasting mat with 5 (15ml) whiskies from our portfolio, including some of our oldest and finest expressions.

Our Connoisseur Tour also includes a whisky tasting from the cask in the warehouse and a complimentary whisky tasting glass to take home.

Also included is the heritage centre offering a unique insight into founders; John Dewar and his sons Tommy and John Alexander.
