Open Whisky Tasting - Hugh Muir, Old Malt Cask

The World Famous Whisky Castle has been selling the finest malt whiskies of Scotland from its premises in the quaint village of Tomintoul for over 100 years. It is located at the gateway to Scotland's Malt Whisky Trail, 18 miles South of Dufftown. We have over 600 malt whiskies with many being single cask, independently bottled and from small batches

We are delighted that Hugh Muir of Hunter Laing will be spending the day with us hosting tastings for our visitors, showcasing the vast and unique range of bottlings he supplies to the Whisky Castle. Hugh is a very well-established whisky representative with the company, as the Sales Director for Hunter Laing, and he possesses a unique knowledge of whisky and it's origins. During his open tasting, Hugh will be offering tastings from the various ranges that Hunter Laing produce, all of which are non-chill filtered and naturally coloured.

Hugh will also be hosting a tasting masterclass with us in the evening which will offer an in depth and fully tutored tasting of some of the Hunter Laing range, and full details can be found at

When you visit us, you can complement your tasting experience by enjoying our cosy cafe for a snack or light lunch and browse a wide selection of Scottish gifts, foods, toys, clothing and unique jewellery. There is something to suit the whole family.

Our open tastings offer an opportunity to learn about and enjoy what some of our finest malts have to offer and how best to enjoy them. They will benefit whisky novices and experts alike. Please be aware that our events are open to over 18's only.

We would ask that groups of 10 or more please call ahead to book a time slot on 01807 580213.
