Scotch whisky is among the finest in the world and highly sought after by connoisseurs. Travelling around Scotland’s 140 distilleries provides a unique opportunity to taste authentic whisky from the five major whisky-producing regions; Islay, Highland, Campbeltown, Lowland and Speyside. Each region produces whisky with its own distinctive flavour profile for a true taste of Scotland.
At a number of distilleries, you can go behind the scenes of the creative process with exclusive tours and tastings for a truly local travel experience. With whisky distilleries located on islands or in remote locations, private jet or helicopter charter is one of the most convenient ways to travel.
And it’s not just distilleries but exclusive use properties and boutique hotels around Scotland offering unparalleled whisky tasting experiences to indulge in. From jetlogic’s home in Edinburgh, we have curated our top whisky experiences to savour across Scotland.

The Fife Arms
Restored by Iwan and Manuela Wirth, the couple behind Hauser & Wirth galleries, The Fife Arms is a sophisticated boutique hotel featuring Victorian interiors and museum calibre art. But it is Bertie’s Whisky Bar that is the shining star at The Fife Arms.
Bertie’s is more than just a whisky bar. It is a library of whiskies where waiters transform into librarians to help you discover new depths and worlds of whisky. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of whisky bottles artfully arranged like books on shelves illuminated in an amber glow
With a collection of 365 whiskies, one for every day of the year, you never have to leave The Fife Arms for a dram. Every whisky is carefully arranged by flavour profile; fragrant, fruity, rich and smoky, rather than name, age, reputation or region.
Within the collection are some of the rarest single cask whiskies, with some now closed distilleries, making their supplies finite. At Bertie’s you can savour ultra-rare drams from the likes of Caperdonich, Imperial and Pittyvaich.
