This Burns Night, whisky fans will be able to enjoy a dram of their favourite whisky whilst virtually exploring the distillery, from the comfort of their own homes. 

Diageo is the first company to open its distillery doors in this way by working with Google Business View. Google’s Business View is a free 360˚ virtual tour that will allow people to see inside the walls of four of Diageo’s single malt Scotch whisky distilleries: Cardhu, The Singleton of Glen Ord, Talisker and Lagavulin, live from their laptops, iPads and other digital devices.

Commenting on the news, Head of Whisky Outreach at Diageo, Dr Nicholas Morgan, said: “All of our whisky distilleries are unique and all happen to be located in some of the most beautiful places in the world.  Many aspire to visit, but only a few can. So we’re delighted that this technology can open doors for whisky fans across the world, to give enthusiasts an insight into the craftsmanship and hard work that goes into creating these whiskies.”
