Leading this trip will be our very own Holly Seidewand, aka @herwhiskylove on Instagram. She is one of the leading experts on Scotch whisky in the United States. She got her start in whisky by traveling the world and writing about distilleries on her blog Her Whisky Love. Since then, she was the whisky buyer at Gordons in Boston, the North American Brand Ambassador for Bacardi’s Single Malt Scotch Portfolio and currently is co-owner of First Fill Spirits in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Holly has co-led multiple Rascal + Thorn tours and is the leader of this wonderful trip to the West Coast of Scotland. We are excited to have Holly educate and guide this group. This is a very intimate group limited to 4-6 guests. Because of this limited size, Holly can provide true one-on-one education and experience of what you are seeing and tasting!
This is a whisky tour and distillery visits are the key experience. We will visit some of the best on the West Coast of Scotland. Our group will be spend 8 nights traveling around the coast and visit both islands and peninsulas. Because of the limited group size, Holly will be able to showcase these distilleries with more elevated experiences.
Scotland is whisky heaven, but it is also one of the most beautiful countries on earth! On this trip you will visit some beautiful places and take it all in. It’s important to add some cultural sightseeing as well, and this trip will be a nice balance between both whisky and culture.
And food! We will be sure to reserve spots at some of our favorite dining establishments along the West Coast as we travel around.
