To save confusion, the Aberdeen G2G is CANCELLED, I will be pm'ing a mod to ask for it to be closed.

Please use this thread for the ongoing discussion regarding a proposed Whisky Trail G2G, possibly later this year.

Please use the SG2G 2012 thread for the discussions regarding the SG2G proposed for next year in DUNDEE.

I would like to do this, but we will have to make sure it does not clash with my work holiday ban (which is why I think we were looking at next year).

And if we have both whisky and badges - it will be heaven :)

I don't mind organising this, as its in my area, but will need some help!

Also need an idea of dates, will have to look into it but I don't think some of the distilleries open during the winter, lot of the visitors centres probably just open for the summer months.

Probably are going to be limited to when the distilleries / visitor centres are open, to be more interesting.

That's the organised Speyside trial - but obviously there's heaps more to choose from. There was nothing ovbvious on there about opening times.

I do think we need to look to next Spring/Summer - Speyside would be good as it does offer plenty to go at - the map is a good starting point, there will also be the rival distilleries and I think a couple of independants (from memory) who would also welcome us :)

found from people who have been on whiskey trail that if they dont have sample as they say they are driveing they get a minature to take away and there is far more in it than the samples which sounds good to me

I don't like whisky (although always open to trying new things . . . . .) and would definately like badges to be involved!!

don't think there are many distillaries near me though (Kilmarnock) - Johnnie Walkers will be closing soon :(

but happy to help organise if I can in any way!

I would love to do this depending on when. I don't drink but would be happy to be designated driver - that is if Scotch and Susi have recovered from the road trip to Yorkshire and back!!!

I've been having a think (dangerous, I know!) - would it be better to make this a weekend thing rather than a day? By the time it takes us to get round all the distilleries, and having a break or two between, we might be better spreading it out a bit. I would have to find a venue though but if we are doing the Speyside Whisky Trail I'm sure I can find us somewhere.
