Visiting the whisky distilleries of the Scottish Western Isles is a delight to behold. Sailing to these distilleries with the wind in your hair and the smell of the salt from the sea, is a whole new experience.
We carefully plan the most delicious trips throughout the year for the Whisky connoisseur and anyone who is remotely interested in Scottish Whisky. Sail aboard our fabulous luxury yacht Lord Jim and visit, at your leisure, a number of your chosen distilleries.
The sea and the sea air is an exceptionally important part of the flavour of the whisky, infused through the oak casks, which gives each whisky its unique flavour.
This is your personal invitation to be one of only six people to enjoy a magnificent 6 day sail on the West Coast of Scotland.
The following is an example of a 6 night trip which can be modified to suit:
We will sail from Campbeltown harbour, at midday on the first day, heading west and arrive for your first distillery visit at Arran Distillery.
Arran enjoys a warm microclimate – the atmosphere of sea breezes and clear mountain air, together with the warm flow of the Gulf Stream is ideal for the speedy maturation of single malts.
As the only distillery in Scotland to complete 100% of the making process on site, you’ll have the chance to see each and every step of the whisky making process.
After your special tour of the distillery, you will re board your yacht Lord Jim to continue the tasting and enjoy a beautiful freshly prepared meal from local ingredients.
Ardbeg & Jura Distilleries
A quick but scenic trip to Ardbeg Distillery in the morning and an island hop to Jura in the afternoon. Both Islay and Jura are split by a narrow sound but the distinctness in the flavours of the whiskies offered will make for a very interesting and lively discussion over dinner in the evening.
Bowmore and Laphroaig Distilleries
Awaken on the island of Islay to the smells of a fine Scottish breakfast including smoked salmon, kippers and porridge to name but a few of the delights. This readies you for your trips to Bowmore and Laphroaig Distilleries. Lunch and dinner will be as normal which to us means part of your entertainment and delight as it is through our chef’s culinary skills that you will be able to enjoy the company and of course soak up the spirit!
We will then return you to Campbeltown Harbour to end your wonderful trip of a lifetime with the memories of great company, fantastic food and pictures that will stay with you forever.
We are offering 6 nights exclusive Whisky Sail packages, sailing from Campbeltown.
So come on, and join us in heaven aboard Lord Jim, a fantastic boat, superb Scottish cuisine, magnificent scenery and oh yes…a few drams en route!
