A bit about the trip…


The Water of Life is a fantastic documentary that focuses on the people who turned the stagnant whisky industry of the 1980’s into the force that we see today around the world. Greg Swartz, the Director of The Water of Life, joins Rascal + Thorn to collaborate on an unforgettable experience on Islay to revisit some of the key places and experiences from the movie.

As we journey with Greg around Glasgow and Islay, we will see the whisky industry through the lens of a Director. We are super excited to partner with Greg on this journey to Islay and on the many more trips to come.


This week-long tour is filled with special distillery visits and experiences! We start in Glasgow with the famous whisky bars and the Glasgow Distillery. Next, we travel to Islay for unforgettable visits to Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Ardnahoe, and all of the other classic Islay producers. Special tastings and discussions with some of the key craftsmen will truly bring you back to The Water of Life special moments.
