Friends of the Classic Malts
Who wants free whisky? Who wants to look around some of the great distilleries in Scotland for free (well if you don’t count giving away your email address as a cost!)? We certainly do, and that’s what we have been doing!
I’ll start by saying as well that we at DramVentures.com are in no way affiliated or have any personal connection to any distillery or whisky company, so we hope you’ll be able to trust our recommendations and reviews.
For those of you who don’t know, the Friends of the Classic Malts offers a great membership that is totally free and comes with some excellent benefits such as free entry at twelve of the Classic Malt distilleries, along with a complimentary dram of their whisky…who can complain about that?
The distilleries included are excellent as well. They are:
Talisker – Isle of Skye
Caol Ila – Isle of Islay
Lagavulin – Isle of Islay
Glenkinchie – Pentcaitland (near Edinburgh), East Lothian
Knockando – Aberlour, Banfshire
Glen Elgin – Longmorn, Moray

Once you have signed up, you can download your pass to use at any of the above distilleries. If you visit all twelve, you get a pewter Quaich for free! Fandabydosie…
I’m sure you will agree that there are some fantastic whiskies on offer here and it’s well worth the effort of the simple sign up system they use to get involved.
