You will meet at the distillery to put on your wellington boots (provided for the day). This experience includes a distillery tour, a picnic lunch, peat cutting, a visit to the Laphroaig water source and a taste from a selection of casks before using a valinch to bottle your favourite 250ml.

This tour involves some walking over rough and wet terrain, so an intermediate level of fitness is required. Laphroaig will provide footwear, but please bring outer clothing suitable for the weather conditions. From time to time, due to extreme weather, we may be unable to visit the source or the peats – in which case we will substitute these with additional activities on site.
