German Tour in a whisky distillery

Hi there, I hope you can help me. We want to visit a distillery in Scotland. But since my partner does not speak english very good I am looking for one with a tour in german language. I know Glenfiddich has a german tour. Any other place, too? Thanks for your help and regards from Germany

    Hi @queeny1770, I know that the Scotch Whisky Experience on Edinburgh's Royal Mile does German audio tours.  Maybe @Horizons can help with some others, he's a whisky distillery buff!

    There are many distilleries that have german speaking tour guides. Our favourite is Edradour in Pitlochry.
    The owner has married a lady from Hamburg and now his german is excellent. They also employ german speaking staff.
    Best regards

    German language support would mostly be from audio headsets (Glenlivet offers one too) but it should be ok to show up nevertheless in my opinion. I've generally found the staff helpful and many of the groups I've been on do have German participants who you could pair up with.

    Hi @queeny1770. First ask youself what kind of whisky you like. For example friuty or smoky. Depending on your taste preferences and your favorite brands you can choose the region of Scotlan, in which you will taste :) For example the homeland of smoky whiskies is Isle of Islay with Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Bowmore, Coal Ila and many more.

    Torabhaig, the new distillery on Skye, has two German speaking tour guides. If you ring up (01471 833 447) you can ask when Hans or Ruud are on duty.
