Glenlivet is a huge distillery but you still get personal attention. Not like Macallan. Whisky tasting is cheap and they have a full range to try. The XXV is superb. Absolutely gorgeous, serene setting. Highly recommended visit.

Our silent season this year ran from the end of May to the beginning of July. It is usually around that time but the exact dates vary from year to year according to the extent of the maintenance jobs required.
