Glengoyne hat angekündigt, Besuchern der Brennerei demnächst das vielseitigste und umfassendste Destillerie-Erlebnis überhaupt bieten zu können. Im Moment wird noch daran gearbeitet, das Manager’s House der Glengoyne Destillerie in einen Treffpunkt und Veranstaltungsort mit Sampling Room (in dem man die Möglichkeit hat, seinen eigenen Blend herzustellen), Club Raum und voll ausgestattetem Konferenzraum umzubauen.
Es wird verschiedene neue Touren geben, inklusive einer Cask Tasting Tour und einer Führung, die angeblich den bisher tiefsten Einblick in die Arbeit einer Brennerei gibt.
Glengoyne unveils exciting new range of distillery tours
Glengoyne has announced exciting new plans that will position the distillery as one of the best in Scotland, by offering the most varied and comprehensive distillery experience ever. Work is currently underway on transforming the traditional manager’s house at Glengoyne distillery into a brand new venue offering a state-of-the art sampling room, impressive Club Room and fully equipped meeting room, due to be completed by early July 2006.
As part of the new developments Glengoyne has unveiled a new range of guided tours, including a cask tasting tour and the most ‚hands on‘ and in-depth distillery tour in the history of the industry.
The Sample Room will be spectacular in its design. Each wall will be lined with an array of sample bottles containing whiskies at different stages of maturation from Glengoyne’s many thousands of casks. The Sample Room will allow visitors to take their whisky knowledge to new levels, really getting them „inside the barrel“. There will also be the opportunity for visitors to create their own unique blend of whisky, under the watchful eye of the sample room blender. This is expected to appeal to both whisky aficionados looking to expand their knowledge as well as corporate customers wanting a new and unusual team day out.
The Club Room, which will be decorated using hand printed furnishings from hip designers Timorous Beasties, will offer a place for tour visitors to relax, drink in their surroundings and learn more about the award-winning malt.
The Meeting Room will offer facilities for up to 24 people and will be aimed at companies looking for an unusual venue for meetings or presentations that also offers team-building activities. Light refreshments will be available for meetings.
