TESTIMONIALS

Road Tripwhisky tour

This is the only way to experience whisky in Scotland. Mitch and his team are amazing. They have all the best contacts, know the best places to go and make the experience unique and most importantly fun. I would recommend CopperCairn for corporate hospitality as well as to my friends and family looking for the true Scotland whisky experience. Mitch also has great ideas for excursions and experiences outside they whisky world. Worth every penny and is truly great value.
