Taste of Place Spirit & Beer Trail

Scotland's Food and Drink Coast

Wild About Argyll's Taste of Place Spirit & Beer Trail celebrates a wide range of distilleries, breweries and producers as well as hotels, restaurants and bars.

Argyll is famed for its single malt whiskies, with 14 distilleries dotting what is known as the 'whisky coast'. There's nothing quite like sampling the product in the region's historic distilleries and most offer guided tours ending with a large dram. There are some cracking craft gin distilleries too.

Visit Beinn an Tuirc Distillery on Kintyre to see how Kintyre Gin is made. Hand-crafted ales are produced all across Argyll. Fyne Ales Brewery at the head of Loch Fyne is a great place to visit. Enjoy a brewery tour followed by a pint in the courtyard... a great life pleasure!

Where will you go? Explore below and choose as many places across multiple trails - it's all here for you! We are proud to list our Wild About Argyll and Food From Argyll members for the Spirit & Beer Trail below.
