You will learn all about whisky production and the unique aspects of Glenfarclas. Bear in mind that Glenfarclas is a working distillery and at times certain areas of the facility may be closed due to ongoing production.
Does my Privilege Card entitle me to anything else?
If your tasting session leaves you thirsty for more, your card also entitles you to 10% discount off the price of Glenfarclas Family Cask whiskies at the Mash Tun whisky bar in Aberlour. Please take proof of age with you. The bar of the Mash Tun is crafted from Oregon pine wood once used in the whisky making process!
