Turriff is within short driving distance of the famous Malt Whisky Trail. The traditions of distilling and maturing Scotch Whisky (often referred to as 'the water of life' and 'amber liquid') have evolved through the centuries, using crafts passed from generation to generation in a continual process of refinement.
