Combine a taste of Scotland with a taste of Knockderry’s hospitality
The Wee Dram Break is a great introduction to Scottish whisky and our favourite local distillery, Glengoyne. Glengoyne Distillery is a whisky distillery continuously in operation since its founding in 1833 at Dumgoyne, north of Glasgow, Scotland. Glengoyne is unique in producing Highland single malt whisky matured in the Lowlands.
Our 2-night Bed & Breakfast short break not only includes a dram from your choice of any of the 50 plus Malt Whiskies we offer from the bar but also a ticket for two to tour Glengoyne Distillery.
The Wee Tour is an hour long and you will be welcomed with with a dram of the Glengoyne 12 Year Old – but at the end there’s also a Glengoyne 18 Year Old waiting for you. You will be guided through the tasting of each whisky, giving you an introduction to the flavours and aromas. In addition, you will follow the journey the spirit makes – through mashtun and washbacks to the swan-necks of the copper stills. Find out how the whisky ages – from the difference the wood makes, to how the spirit deepens in colour over the years.
This whisky experience is available up until the 14 October 2017. Our dates and rates for 2018 will be pulished shortly.
The Wee Dram Break in a small double room during the spring and autumn starts from £118.00 per night. Breaks in July and August start from £136.00 per night on any day of the week. Other rooms types are also available.
