The highlands of Scotland are blessed with quality distilleries that produce quality malt whisky. The ‘Ben Nevis Distillery’ is one of them. This distillery was founded in 1825 and regarded as one of the oldest licensed whisky companies in Scotland. This distillery is popular for being situated at a popular site which is the foot of the Ben Nevis Mountain (which is the highest mountain in Britain).
Ben Nevis Distillery welcomes visitors to its ‘Legend of the Dew of Ben Nevis Visitors Centre’ that is incorporated into the distillery site. It is the distillery’s warehouse where visitors can see and learn about the history of the facility and its whisky distillation process.
Hector McDram is both tutor and guide and exposes visitors to the revered secrets of the ‘Legend of the Dew of Ben Nevis’ as well as information about the distillery via audiovisuals.
Visitors can also be guided by a professional around the production site and the tasting rooms. There are a coffee shop and gift shop on the site where visitors can enjoy traditional delicacies and purchase several bottles of whisky or gift items respectively.
