Third stop on my whiskey tour out of Inverness. Only one on the tour that is still family owned. We sampled a 10 year old and 15 year old single malt. We visited one of the original warehouses. You can see the rails used to move the barrels to the warehouse. Also, spent some time in their corporate space. It is nicely decorated. Just outside the corporate hall is a cabinet of bottles dating back to 1950's. Posted with the bottles is a sheet displaying how much the each bottle cost now. That was cool to see how much each year cost. One interesting fact the guide mentioned was that they still use gas heating. Only two other distilleries still use gas heating, others use a steam coil.

Oh what a great tour it was! If you are to pick but one distillery to have a tour at go for Glenfarclas. It is relatively small, located in a beautiful scenery and the tour guides are top class. They will cover all the basics but also share some local insights which will make even most seasoned veterans satisfied with how they spend their money. Make some pictures at the old warehouse - there is a lot of liquid gold there :)

The Glenfarclas Distillery has a great whisky tour and tasting. The tour guides are so knowledgeable of the history and make everything very enjoyable. It was very interesting. As far as the tasting, the room is beautiful and whisky is good. They even give the non-drinkers/drivers small travel bottles instead of the unlabeled vials that other places used.

We arrived too late to go on a tour but Suzanne offered us a free taste anyway, which we of course accepted. She was incredibly informative & we enjoyed 3 samples to taste. We felt that even though we didn't get to go on a tour, we learnt so much from Suzanne.
