Fish plate at Errichel, perfect for a whisky and food themed incentive group visit to Perthshire

Situated on the beautiful and fertile banks of the River Tay, Perthshire is known as part of Scotland’s ‘bread basket’, with a tradition of growing delicious soft fruits. The landscape also offers pure, clear mountain waters ideal for making fine Scotch whisky, with some of Scotland’s most renowned whisky distilleries found here. Combine this with an abundance of wild deer and line caught salmon, and you have all the ingredients for a sublime gourmet experience – little wonder that so many foodie venues and suppliers have established themselves in Perthshire.

I recently organised to bring a group of work colleagues up to Aberfeldy to have a private whisky tasting at night when the distillery is normally closed to visitors.

The team accommodated us really well. A production tour with a tasting in the middle and then another couple back at the bar. The price was very reasonable and the bar very nice. Would definitely recommend.
