A DISTILLERY is offering visitors little samples of its unique malts to take away so that drivers don’t miss out.

Aberlour Distillery visitor centre supervisor Rikki Scott invented the Drivers’ Tasting Kit after seeing the disappointment of designated drivers when it comes to the tasting part of the tour.

Rikki said: “Our internationally acclaimed distillery tours feature nosings and tastings of some of the most prestigious expressions of Aberlour, including priceless drams ordinarily not available to the public.

“I didn’t want anyone to miss out on this experience, so I set about developing and designing the kit.”

The reusable kits are priced £3 and contain six small bottles, a funnel and a handy carry bag. Drivers can take part in the nosing before dispensing the whisky into the bottles and enjoying them when they return home.

Rikki continued: “No one should let the unique opportunity to sample some very special drams go by. The Drivers Tasting Kit means that everyone who visits the Aberlour Distillery can enjoy the experience but also be responsible.”

Supt George Macdonald, who leads on Road Safety in Moray and Aberdeenshire, said: “Road Safety is an area of significant focus for the police and other partners in Moray and Aberdeenshire.

“Any approach which supports a responsible attitude to alcohol and ultimately driver behaviour is always welcomed.”

Aberlour Distillery is run by Chivas Brothers and is open from Monday to Friday until December 18.
