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

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.

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