Recommended Christmas Whiskies

It’s that time of year again. Time to settle by the fire or wood-burning stove or even outdoor fire pit to watch the stars and settle down with a good Christmas whisky. We would love to give you some recommended Christmas Whiskies.

At High Spirits Tours we can recommend some spectacular drams to warm those winter days an celebrate after your family Christmas meal. Maybe even replacing the Christmas Pudding! Here are our recommended Christmas whiskies in no particular order!

At High Spirits Tours we can arrange visits of all of these distilleries, except Tamdhu. They may be open to accepting visitors if we ask them nicely! We have many preplanned tour options for you to consider or if you prefer a bespoke/ tailor-made option we are experienced in putting these together for groups of all sizes.

I hope everyone can find a Christmas dram they can cherish and forget the year that’s been and look forward to a positive year in 2021.
