Whisky Tour ~ Inverness


We started to explore west Scotland famous for its breath-taking scenery and on our way stopped by Dufftown to visit the Glenfiddich distillery, to see how Scottish malt whisky is being made.
 

The Glenfiddich Distillery is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery owned by William Grant & Sons.
Glenfiddich means "Valley of the Deer' in Gaelic, hence the presence of a stag symbol on Glenfiddich bottles.



We had a great tour of the working distillery and barrel warehouse and the tour guide was very informative and professional.




It's a free tour and at the end of it, you get to sample Glenfiddich 10, 12 and 18 years, on the house and can even ask for seconds ......... Cheers!





Glenfiddich 30 years
&
Glenfiddich 50 years and the price is a whopping 15,000 sterling pounds!!!





We had lunch at The Malt Barn restaurant on the right.

 Cream of Tomato and Basil
&
Bacon and Brie Bagel

 Salmon Tart
&
Cullen Skink, a traditional hearty Scottish soup made with
smoked haddock, potatoes and onions
 
Roasted Pork Belly
&
Traditional Fish Pie


 Rounded off with Dessert  :  Victoria Sponge Cake
&
Sticky Toffee Pudding





After a hearty meal, we continued on our journey to Loch Ness.  Who knows, we may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Nessie, the Loch Ness monster.  Stay tuned for more pictures in my future posts .......

  1. Cheah, Are you allowed to sample free whisky at the distillery? I remember I had free rice wine when I visited Shouzhou last time.

    1. Yes, after the tour, the guide will take us to a 'bar' for free whisky. Each glass is 'designated' with the age of the whisky on the placemat. Then, she'll ask you the difference in taste. I didn't take any as I can't drink and my family just shared the drinks.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!
