Begin you trail on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres at Benromach Distillery.
Here you can view the mash tun and the burnished copper stills before visiting the dunnage warehouse and taking part in a tutored tasting session of Benromach Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Next, call in at Cardhu, home to a distillery licensed in 1824.
You'll be given a guided tour of the facility as well as the chance to sample the Cardhu 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky before embarking for Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery.
The latter has had a chequered existence over the years and on a tour of the production site you'll find out more about its many closures and reopenings before tasting some of the traditional single malt.
Your next stop on the whistle stop tour is the Glenfiddich Distillery, home to one of the world's best-loved whiskies.
Here you can choose a connoisseur's tour to give you a real insight into how the amber nectar is made before heading on to the distillery in Glen Grant - renowned for its clear whisky with a contemporary flavour.
Journey on to Glenlivet to be regaled with tales of illicit stills and whisky smuggling as you discover more about this elegant single malt, then travel on to Elgin - one of the sunniest regions of Scotland - to taste some more of the tipple at Glen Moray.
The last locations on your tour will be Speyside Cooperage, where you can try a mini cask of whisky that has matured in American oak barrels, and the ancient distillery of Strathisla - where you can learn about the age-old skills of distilling and blending.
