Itinerary and Details

Subject to change. Do not book flights until you hear from trip leaders.

Visiting distilleries in Scotland isn’t like bar hopping on Boylston Street in Back Bay. Scotland distills arguably the finest whiskies in the world. We will be traveling quite a bit and enjoying the beautiful landscapes along the way. Each day we will taste and tour at least one distillery. This trip is for Jewish men and we will have kosher food throughout as well as two insightful and inspirational workshops each day.  During the days we will be on the road so we will bring packed lunches. Each night we will feast.

The days will be filled with inspiration, insight and plenty of spirit. We look forward to enjoying each others company and gaining a greater appreciation for Scotch. Flights are not included in the price. You get to the airport, we will take care of the rest.

Some logistical considerations

Arrival: Transportation will be provided throughout the trip. We will be leaving Glasgow Airport at approximately 12:45pm on Monday afternoon. However, you are welcome to join us at any time as long as we are aware of your plans and you will be responsible for your own transportation.

Castle: We will stay in a fine castle Mon. through Friday morning.

Shabbat London (only $250 add-on includes travel to London): On Friday morning we will travel by car to London for an uplifting Shabbat. We will enjoy home hospitality in the Golders Green community which we are welcome  to stay until Sunday morning. All meals and arrangements will be taken care of as well as transportation to Golders Green from the Castle. On Sunday morning everyone is on their own to make their way to the airport or begin a new adventure in London, but breakfast will officially complete this round of Tribe Reserve.
