Visitor Centre Plans Approved for Glencadam Distillery

  • May 30, 2019


We are delighted to announce that Angus Council have approved the plans to build a Visitor Centre at Glencadam distillery in Brechin. 

The plans will develop existing buildings to incorporate a unique tour, whisky tasting area, tea room and shop, all designed to celebrate the history and heritage of Glencadam, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland.

The designs will retain the original sandstone facade of the existing buildings, together with other integral features that date back almost 200 years, and blend this with some innovative new architecture.

There will also be newly designed offices, meetings rooms and tasting lab for the distillery team, all located in the original floor maltings, which are no longer in use.

Distillery Manager Doug Fitchett says: “We are delighted to be a part of this development of the distillery, which will give our visitors from the UK and around the world the chance to really experience what makes Glencadam unique. There is so much history here and great stories to tell, and some excellent whiskies to try of course!”

“The development will also be a great boost for the area, and I think we’ll see a big increase in tourists and local people coming into Brechin, to tour the distillery and visit our new shop and tea room.”

Work for the visitor centre will start at the distillery this year.

Spirit of Speyside 2019

  • Apr 25, 2019

The Tomintoul team are busy getting ready for the world famous Spirit of Speyside festival which starts next week, running from the 1st to 6th May.

This year we are delighted to be involved not only in the event at Dufftown (where we hope to see all our old friends, and make some new ones as well!) but also in some unique new events that we are running for the first time ever this year. 

Our Global Brand Ambassador, Iain Forteath, is hosting three new events, that will give all our visitors some unique perspectives on the distillery and our whisky. So whether it's having a whisky cocktail and a bacon roll in the morning, or enjoying a toasted marshmallow and a dram by the river in the evening, there's an event that will suit everyone. 

Our Production Manager, Graeme Bowie, is also hosting some unique whisky tasting events, both at the distillery and in Dufftown. For more info and to purchase tickets for Iain or Graeme's events please visit the Spirit of Speyside website - but be quick, they are selling out fast!

Hope to see you at the distillery or in Dufftown - enjoy the festival.
