Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery in Perthshire has launched an indulgent Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour that groups can book privately.
The Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour runs from Monday to Saturday at 10am and comprises a full guided tour of Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, warehouse and interactive heritage exhibition.
The experience then concludes with a flavourful pairing experience in the Whisky Lounge, which provides a ‘homely retreat’ with hand-crafted furniture, large sofas and a cosy fireplace.
Visitors will sample the Aberfeldy 12 year old single malt whisky, the premium Dewar’s 12 year old blended Scotch and super-premium Dewar’s 18 year old blended Scotch, matched with chocolate discs from Vietnam, Guatemala, and The Democratic Republic of Congo.
The chocolates have been sourced by local chocolatier Charlotte Flower, from Africa, Asia and Central America, and the final decision as to which would be chosen was made by Dewar’s master blender, Stephanie Macleod.
UK brand homes manager, Charlotte Brown, said: “We’re very excited to have teamed up with chocolatier Charlotte Flower to launch our brand new Whisky and Chocolate Tasting Tour, and she has sourced some of the most excellent chocolate from around the world to create the perfect pairing.”
The Whisky and Chocolate Tour lasts for two hours. Group bookings for 12 or more people should be made by calling 01887-822010.
More at the distillery
Group exploring the distillery can see the extensive refurbishment of the visitor centre, undertaken in 2014, which saw many of the traditional features of this historical building refurbished.
A dramatic ‘stave tunnel’ installation, made from oak casks, leads visitors from the heritage exhibition to the hosting area. There is also a feature archive wall, which showcases vintage memorabilia, signs and advertising campaigns from throughout Dewar’s history.
