Looking to create a whisky and food themed Scottish incentive package for your clients or company? Here we present a 3 day sample itinerary, perfect for an incentive group, covering some of Perthshire’s key whisky & food destinations. Read on for a flavour of what can be offered, but please be aware that we’ve barely scraped the surface here of what Perthshire can offer to the enthusiastic foodie.
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.
