Perthshire Whisky Distilleries
Scotland is synonymous with Whisky. Originally called "Uisge Bea" in Scots Gaelic (pronounced ooshka bea - which means "Water of Life" in English). It changed as it became phonetically anglicised into whooshka be and eventually whisky. It is part and parcel of our culture in Scotland and now enjoyed worldwide although it retains its scottish origin being called "Scotch" in the USA and throughout Asia.
If Whisky is your tipple of choice, Perthshire offers the chance to visit and taste a variety of different whisky distilleries. It hosts the oldest (Glenturret in Crieff) and the smallest (Edradour in Pitlochry) distilleries in Scotland. We recommend a visit to Eradour as well as the Blair Athol Distillery. The other distillery of note in the area is Aberfedly which hosts the Dewars World of Whisky visitor centre.
