5 of Scotland's best whisky distilleries to visit by helicopter

Glenmorangie, Scotland

Scotland received a huge publicity boost this summer when Roman Abramovich’s superyacht Eclipse was spotted off Greenock. A huge lure of a private adventure or a luxury yacht charter in Scotland has always been the ability to discover some of the world's finest whisky distilleries by superyacht. Abramovich took advantage of this and went whisky tasting during his five days on his luxury yacht in Scotland. However, some of country's best distilleries are hidden in the rolling hills meaning that you might have to venture by air to discover their delights.

Here are five hidden gems to consider visiting by helicopter:

1. Glenmorangie (Northern Highlands)

Glenmorangie in Tain is a joy to visit. The welcome is warm, the whiskies are wonderful and Glenmo House an absolute delight to dine in. Make sure you enjoy a dram of Glenmorangie Signet, the richest, most intense whisky in the range.

Balblair, Scotland

Balblair will be familiar to cineastes for its role in Ken Loach’s 2012 film The Angels’ Share and to whiskyphiles for the exceptional quality of its vintage malts. Try the 2003 Balblair 1st Release Single Malt, loaded with toffee, butterscotch, honey and candied orange peel.

Dalwhinnie, Scotland

Dalwhinnie sits in proud isolation high in the Cairngorms National Park. The weather here can be harsh – it’s reputed to be the coldest inhabited spot in the UK – but the whisky itself, notably the 15 Year Old, is fabled for its softness and warmth.
