Whisky - The Water of Life

Initially whisky was lauded for its medicinal qualities, being prescribed for the preservation of health, the prolongation of life, and for the relief of colic, palsy and even smallpox. Today Scotch Whisky is perhaps Scotland's most famous export.

Scotch Whisky is a speciality of The Garden Arms Hotel and guest are always welcome to enjoy the "Water of Life". Sampling everything from unique local malts and world famous blends. If you're not an expert, don't worry - the landord is! And, he'll be more than happy for recommend a "nip" or two for you to try.

The traditions which create genuine Scotch Whisky have evolved over hundreds of years, using skills passed from generation to generation. Today Scotland's fine Scotch Malt Whisky is produced in distilleries on the doorstep of the natural ingredients on which their unique flavour depends.

The Garden Arms Hotel is a great base to visit the eight distilleries and one cooperage on Scotland's only Malt Whisky Trail.
