TodemmyOur destination was the famous single malt (Single malt) whisky distillery-Glenfiddich (Glenfiddich) located in the northern mountains. Compared to the blended whiskies mentioned earlier, Single malt is more respected by Scottish local whiskey lovers. The site of Glenfiddich is located in the mountains, and the scenery must be good, so we drove there with a group of five people. We arrived at the Glenfiddich distillery, which was filled with rich aromas. The old grandfather wearing a kilt greeted us warmly. A little girl named Molly served as our tour guide today. The tour starts with a documentary about Glenfiddich. Put on the quaint big headphones, eh, there is actually a Chinese narration. And the production of the film is indeed of a very high standard. Compared with some messy promotional films, I don't know where it is. All in all, after watching this movie, I knew that this place should be the right place today. Our guide Molly is only 18 years old, and most of the oak barrels piled up in the winery warehouse are older than her (of course many are also older than me, I am very young). She is only a part-time job here, but she is already thoroughly familiar with the whisky brewing process and the history of Glenfiddich. And it can be seen that she really loves this aspect of culture, otherwise she would never have such a passion. Glenfiddich is still a family business today, and the winemakers and coopers who work here have been passed on from generation to generation, which lasted for more than a century. The popular "craftsman spirit" has been well preserved here. Because of the high alcohol content in the air in the winery, electronic devices are not allowed for safety reasons, so not many photos are taken. After fermenting and brewing, all kinds of raw materials will come to Spirit Still below. Here, the whiskey is basically finished.
TodemmyThe Strathsla distillery is like a country house, and its fine wines have hardly appeared in the form of single malt whiskey. But the brand that its fine wines have been reconciled and transformed into a gorgeously transformed brand is almost unknown in China. This is Chivas, which is popular all over the country. The Strassesla Winery is located in a remote residential area, and its doorway still retains the chimney used to dry the malt, which has now become a prominent symbol of the winery. The factory building is an old antique left over hundreds of years ago, and the mottled walls are surrounded by cobblestone paths. The winery is very small, with only a few workers patrolling, and it has the deserted temperament of Scotland. Out of the distillery, strolling around the "Whiskey Country" Speyside (Speyside) is also a repertoire for most Strassysla distillery travelers.
