Ben Nevis Distillery

Ben Nevis Distillery established in 1825, is one of the oldest Ben Nevis Distillerylicensed distilleries in Scotland. The distillery is nestled at the foot of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which has a summit elevation of 4406 feet above sea level. This imposing mountain provides an impressive background to a traditional Scottish craft.

When you are visiting Fort William, you can have a guided tour around the 178 year old whisky distillery, meet a giant of a man, Hector McDram, visit the whisky shop and restaurant then 'take a dram' and savour the Uisge beatha - the water of life.

Incorporated within Ben Nevis Distillery is The Legend of the Dew of Ben Nevis Visitor Centre, built into an old warehouse dating from 1862 and former bottling hall, which still retains some of its original features.

Scotch whisky comes in several forms. The main ones are single malts, as well as vatted malts, which are blends of different single malts in one bottle, blended whiskies, being a mix of single malts and grain whiskies, and whiskies that are distilled from grain only. All in all, there are literally hundreds of Scotch whiskies. To find the one you like best could take years and years.
