Take the Tomatin Tour If You Dare - Tomatin distillery brings back hauntingly good tour
Published Date: 24th September 2018
Highland whisky distillery Tomatin, is gearing up to host its infamous spook-tacular Fright Night tours in celebration of Halloween on Friday 26th of October.
The two frightful distillery tours will see 20 brave visitors picked up in Inverness on Friday evening before travelling to Tomatin where they will be in for a spine-chilling evening.
First hosted in 2016, the infamous and terrifying tours see the Tomatin transformed into a haunted distillery and staff becoming bloodcurdling ghosts and ghouls for the event.
Enjoying a cocktail on arrival, visitors will start their tour in the Malt barns, before being taken into the Mash house. Brave attendees will then go through the Stillhouse and around the Cooperage, enjoying several drams along the way, before finally ending in the Warehouses – all the while things go bump in the night.
After a few jump-scares, the tour will end at just before the witching hour in the Visitors Centre with another much-needed dram to calm the nerves.
Louise Taylor, Visitor Centre Manager at Tomatin, said: “We’re excited to host our fright night, an event that has proved very popular with our visitors in the past. This year we’ve made sure our hair-raising tour is scarier than ever with more ghouls and ghosts than ever before.
“Tomatin boasts buildings that are over 100 years old, meaning there is no end of eerie tales and fables surrounding the distillery. We look forward to having visitors take part in our creepy tour… if they dare!”
Packed with the longstanding history of Tomatin and an in-depth insight into the process of creating whisky, the tour is not for the faint of heart and is strictly for over 18s only.
Two spine-tingling tours are available: 6:30pm or 7:30pm, with each taking just over an hour. Tickets costs £20 per person and include four drinks and transport.
Spaces are limited and expected to sell fast, to purchase tickets please phone: 01463 248 144
Tomatin Distillery lies just 16 miles south of Inverness and 15 miles north of Aviemore on the A9. For additional information please visit: www.tomatin.com
