Edradour Scottish Whiskey Distillery Tour

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

This evening I am posting some images of a recent Scotland tour which entailed a visit to Edradour which is a classic farm distillery and the smallest legal distillery in Scotland.

Edradour was founded in 1825 and currently produces 90,000 litres p.a.

The management of Edradour provide an excellent free tour taking visitors through the whole process of malting,mashing,fermentation, distillation and maturation.

There is an excellent whiskey shop at the Distillery which sells a wide range of specialist whiskeys.

Here is an aspect of the Distillery buildings.

Here is a copper still
Here is the glass-fronted spirit safe where the expert separates the middle cut containing the best quality alcohol from the feints or lower grade alcohol.

Edradour is located close to Pitlochry in Perthshire and is well worth a visit.
