All aboard Glengoyne's Whisky Bus

08 August, 2008

Glengoyne is giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the distillery's 175-year-old history and sample its drams onboard Scotland's first Whisky Bus.

The daily service will go from seven

collection points in Glasgow to the Glengoyne

distillery. A daily nosing competition will take place on board, with the "best nose" of each day entered into a draw to win

a place on the Glengoyne Selection Panel, which is responsible for choosing one of the limited- edition single malts that will be†launched in 2009.

The bus also solves the problem of designated drivers being unable to drink free samples of whisky during distillery tours, according to brand heritage manager Stuart Hendry. "We've found that on average, 25% of our 40,000 visitors per year are designated drivers and were therefore only nosing their malt and leaving the glass undrunk."

A ticket on the Whisky Bus costs £18.50 and includes a distillery tour
