Raise a glass and toast to this tipsy two-hour tour that introduces you to the differences and similarities between whisky and beer production. A 30-minute scenic motorcoach drive takes you from port to the iconic Macaloney's Island Distillery & Twa Dogs Brewery. Here, a kilted tour guide will introduce the history of the facility. Guided by his love for "uisge beatha," the water of life, Graeme Macaloney, the ex-pat Scot founder, and whisky maker, set out to create the finest single malt whisky in North America and perhaps the world. On an interactive tour, you'll learn how only the finest ingredients and the best equipment are instrumental in the quality of the single malt whiskies and artisan craft beers. At the conclusion of the experience, you will enjoy a tasting of the award-winning craft libations. Return to port via a downtown highlights tour. Cheers!

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 19 years with photo ID. Tastings include three local beers and two local whiskies.
