The Highlanders Water of Life

Monday, 24 July 2017

Dornoch Castle Hotel is set in the beautiful, historic town of Dornoch in the heart of the Highland Whisky Trail making it the ideal destination for any Highland Whisky trip. Home to the multi-award winning Castle Whisky Bar and Dornoch Distillery, it has become a haven for global whisky enthusiasts. 

The Whisky Bar boasts a vast selection of rare and unique vintage malts to entice all whisky fans as well as delicious food pairings for the most avid foodie. Start your decadent meal with the Dornoch Gazpacho - a cold roasted tomato soup infused and paired with Dornoch Gin Experimental Batch 8, continue with a modern seafood canapé paired with an Islay Ardberg 10-year-old cult malt, and finish with a sticky toffee mini square with salted caramel sauce paired with Glen Dornach 21-year-old Oloroso cask. 

Then share in the knowledge and passion of bar owners, Simon and Phil Thompson who have taken absolute care in creating their collection of rare and vintage whiskies. Step back in time at the brand new Dornoch Distillery, in the old "Fire House", and taste the finest 'old style' whisky and organic gin, both made from scratch by the Thompson brothers. After this unique experience, you will leave truly understanding why the Scots call whisky 'Usige Beathe' or 'water of life'. As Mark Twain said "Too much of anything is bad for you, but too much whisky is barely enough."
