Golden tickets ahoy!! Glenrothes opens to public!

In a similar scenario to the great Roald Dahl book, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, the legendary Glenrothes distillery in Speyside are opening their doors to the general public on Friday 8th May, offering a rare opportunity to discover the secrets of their award winning single malt.

Established in 1879, The Glenrothes has historically been closed to the public. As part of the Speyside Festival celebrations, the distillery will be running two exclusive tours of the distillery distillery in Rothes.

Guided by Brand Ambassador (and Rothes' very own Willy Wonka), Ronnie Cox, plus Speyside born Eric Jefferson, visitors will be taken on a tour of the distillery as well as the working cooperage on site. The tour will end with a complimentary tasting of The Glenrothes Select Reserve.

Late last year, Caskstrength got an opportunity to tour round this wonderful distillery so wholeheartedly recommend you get on the phone and book your place now. You can read about our adventures here and here.

Tours will take place on Friday 8th May at 9.30am and 10.30am and are free of charge. Places are strictly limited so the distillery recommend that anyone interested books a place in advance. To book a place please contact Pamela Wils or Sarah Bailey at The BIG Partnership on 0131 555 5522.
