Whisky trail from Edinburgh
An educating experience, to say the least...Tourguide Jim was, to put it simply, a true Scot and obvious Whisky enthusiast. The trip was very educational, and I do feel I’m going home feeling just a tiny bit more Scottish...at the very least, now I know at which side the Barley gets in! 😏

Bringing home a nice bottle of 15-year-old Single Malt straight out of Distillery is also I pleasant addition!

Hope to see you guys again soon! 😉🥃🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Fantastic experience
Aug. 2020
This is a brilliant trip which takes in one of my favourite whisky's Dewars.Our driver Gillian is a superb host who is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She is a very good driver with wonderful stories and also some good music including a bit of Deacon Blue. Every precaution was taken against the Covid Virus which made you feel comfortable and completely safe. A superb day out taking in 2 distilleries and some of Scotland's beautiful places.Very enjoyable and worth all the costs, Highly recommended so get on board.

Whisky experience day trip
Had a local guide. Martin as the driver. Excellent tour. Saw more of Scot land an the surrounding area. Then on the day tour. The whisky tasting was ok. But still good scenery on the drive.

We were just 5 people on the tour , Jim was a great guide who not only entertained us with history and stories he also took the time to show us some of scotland's beautiful scenery- waterfalls, crannog and castles- super fun day. The distillery was of course the highlight and we got to visit 2 which is plenty

Jim was a fabulous tour guide. He took into account of the poor weather and fit a third whiskey distillery into the day which was wonderful. We loved everywhere we stopped and Jim was entertaining and kind throughout the whole trip. We would highly recommend Timberbush and Jim.

Great stories & Great whisky!
Nov. 2019
An agent booked this for me and I had no idea what to expect. I showed up in the morning, got on the bus with 6 lovely people and our guide, Neil. As he explained how our day was going to go, I found out I wasn't going to be back into Edinburgh until 6pm that night - a 10 hour trip! Little did I realize at that point, every hour of it would be filled with great storytelling by Neil, beautiful visions of the Scottish landscape, and a few extra stops that surprised me too. I was absolutely delighted with the day, and I'm glad I was able to experience it. Neil is a wonderful guide and he had some great stories to share. He tells them in such a captivating way, the drive felt like it passed in minutes.

Excellent time and great guide.
Nov. 2019
I took the Timberbush Ultimate Whiskey tour during our trip to Scotland. It was an excellent all-day adventure for whiskey tasting beginners. There are two visits during the day; one to Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery and the other to the Deanston Distillery. It was fascinating to see the full production process then sample the spirits afterwards. Our tour guide rattled off stories, jokes, and Scottish history and music the entire day keeping the travel time between locations interesting. We weather was sunny and we enjoyed every moment on the trip. Regarding the tastings, I felt Dewar’s a bit too fast to properly appreciate it, though it was completely superseded by Deanston where we were given great advise to better appreciate the tastings. Overall a great experience for a whiskey tasting beginner.
