Legend has it that alcoholic beverages of one kind or another were produced in and around Tain since Medieval times.

We know for sure that single malt whisky has been crafted on the Peninsula since 1843 when a local farmer, William Matheson and his wife founded, the now world-renowned, Glenmorangie Distillery in Tain.

More recently the Peninsula became home to handcrafted artisan gin and vodka, with all the ingredients hand foraged locally. A more pure dram will be hard to find.

Other distilleries are within visiting distance of your stay on the Peninsula.
