About

Take the world’s oldest whisk(e)y trail to where it all began and where it thrives today. From the very best the Causeway Coastal Route has to offer in food, drink and accommodation, we add the bonus of excusive distillery tours and expert tastings.

Our tours take you along the world’s oldest whisk(e)y trail in an exclusive two-day package. You’ll see the location of the earliest record of spirit distillation; visit the world’s oldest licensed distillery; and take a boat trip to the Scottish island with the world’s fastest growing single malt category.
By land and by sea, you’ll experience the exhilaration of Ireland’s Causeway Coastline, learn the true history of the medieval Kingdom of Dal Riada and its role in spreading the Mysteries of the Malt around the world; and experience the best of the region’s most famous liquid – whisk(e)y – in private tastings, along with exclusive access to world-famous distilleries.
