Snow across Scotland

As winter weather, icy winds and plenty of snow blows its way across Scotland, we thought we’d ask the various Distillery Visitor Centres we work with throughout the whisky regions to send us some of their snow photos!

Here’s what they sent us from across the Highlands and Speyside…

Aberlour Distillery in Speyside was looking beautiful buried under snow this morning.

Likewise, Benromach Distillery was looking superb under a blanket of white snow to set off that red chimney!

The team at The Famous Grouse Experience in Crieff were out in full force clearing snow from the visitor carpark today! Even the grouse himself had a coating of snow.

Glenfarclas Distillery, also in Speyside, took some brilliant during and after shots for us as the blizzard rolled in!

The team from Glengoyne Distillery in the Highlands have been out and about taking some beautiful photos around the distillery – including a cracking one of a dram of their 18 year old whisky against a snowy backdrop.

Glen Grant February 18

Glen Grant Distillery (Speyside) had a thick layer of snow that covered the bridge over the that sits in their grounds, part of the Victorian Garden that was built by the distillery founder, James Grant.

Glenkinchie Distillery (Lowlands), home of the “Edinburgh Malt” due to its proximity to the city of Edinburgh, had drifts of snow that covered the doors of its newly-built Visitor Centre extension.

The Visitor Centre at The Glenlivet Distillery in Speyside was looking fantastic between the blizzards earlier today!

Strathisla

Meanwhile Strathisla Distillery (Speyside) caught this great photo right in the middle of the snowstorm earlier!

Finally, Tomatin Distillery in the Highlands sent us some stunning morning shots after overnight snowfall. Beautiful!

Catch up on our blog post from a few weeks ago, when the city of Edinburgh had a snow day of its own.

Remember, if you’re planning to visit a whisky distillery while you’re exploring Scotland, it’s always a good idea to follow them on social media, to stay up to date on opening times and closures.

Stay safe and warm everyone!
