Description

Dartmoor Whisky Distillery invites you to come and visit Devon’s only whisky distillery and learn how single malt whisky is made, from barley field to nosing glass in our Whisky Tasting Experience.

This tasting experience is the perfect afternoon activity for any whisky lover, a group of friends or family visiting the area, a birthday or celebration, or would make an amazing gift any time of the year.

Dartmoor Whisky Tasting Experience

Upon entering the distillery, you will be welcomed by our founder Greg or one of his team and shown to your table. Laid before you will be a flight of our whisky expressions, but you must hold back, for we will go through a guided tasting together later on…

We begin the session with our brand new entertaining and educational film which showcases the full story of Dartmoor Whisky Distillery, from idea to today. The 30 minute video follows the story of our still, our building renovation, and shows you the various stages of how Dartmoor Whisky is made.

After the video, you will then be shown through a guided tasting of the whisky expressions we have released so far, with a chance to discuss with the other participants and ask questions to members of our team. You will try our three single malt expressions which are all individually aged in Ex-Bourbon, Bordeaux Red Wine and Oloroso Sherry casks. Each whisky expression takes on a unique colour and flavour profile from the cask, which we will explain in more detail during the tasting with you.

Once the tasting is complete, you will then be given £5 off any bottle that you buy on the day to take home a souvenir of your visit to share with friends and loved ones (or not!)

Please note that for people who don’t wish to try our whisky or are designated drivers, the ticket price includes a soft drink. Please make yourself known to the team on arrival.

The finest single malt whisky, handcrafted on the edge of Dartmoor

Our whisky is true produce of Devon. Our single cask, single malt whisky is made with local barley, cut with pure Dartmoor spring water and distilled in the old Bovey Tracey Town Hall on the edge of Dartmoor. The local climate and soil make for the very best, high-quality barley. Our barley is grown in the rugged depths of Dartmoor by Devonian farmer Tim Cox at Preston Farm.
When the barley is ripe and golden, it is harvested and sent to be malted at Warminster Maltings. It is Britain’s oldest working malting house and uses traditional techniques such as germination floors and good old-fashioned manpower to malt barley fit for very fine single malt whisky.
Our beer wash is brewed by local cask ale producers to our original recipe, specified by our Master Distiller, Frank McHardy. The primary distillation process takes place in our beautiful copper still, sourced from the Cognac region of France.
The spirit is then transferred into barrels for maturation. We carefully source our casks from around the globe to ensure that each batch of our spirit takes on a sensational and unique flavour.

"I'm not supposed to be drinking for the next few months but had to have a small glass of this when it turned up. This from Dartmoor Whisky Distillery is up there and it may even be the finest young whisky I've ever had!"

Matt

"Extremely pleased to receive one of the first bottles of this for my birthday - it's a really smooth whisky with a great flavour - must be the Dartmoor water!"
