Tasting beer and whiskey at home is one thing, but traveling abroad to sample it from the source is a whole different experience--especially if a game of golf is added to the mix. If you are in search of a whiskey trip or perfect cold ale adventure for a Father’s Day celebration or summer getaway, northern Europe is ideal, and Culinary Latitudes Travel can take you there!
The twelve night British Isles and Golf Voyage package includes a luxury ocean cruise and a tour of breweries and distilleries in various locations. Guests will get to visit the warm and welcoming city of Dublin, Ireland that abounds with pubs and cafes, the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow, Scotland, well-known for its castles, cathedrals, and crypts, and the maritime city of Liverpool, England, home of the Beatles.
Travelers can opt for special tours of the cities’ best known liquor establishments with opportunities to meet the owners, learn about their history, visit the grounds, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing and distilling processes.
There are 59 tours to choose from, such as a visit to the 150-year-old Glengoyne Distillery in Glasgow. Here, visitors will learn how freshwater is drawn from 50-foot falls, used in the whiskey-making process, aged in rum barrels producing a Scottish malt whiskey in flavors such as banana, brown sugar, and cocoa.
A tour of the Panoramic Dublin and Guinness Experience in Ireland begins with a scenic drive through the city’s streets and historic landmarks, stopping at the St. James’ Gate Brewery. This provides a glimpse into the unique ingredients and time-honored traditions of Ireland’s creamy dark stout, which has been brewed for some 250 years including a tour and tasting at the legendary Guinness Storehouse of “the proud brew of Ireland.”
For the ultimate golf experience, The Edwardian Life: Hickory Golf and Garden Lunch package features a traditional game of 9 holes on the fairways of Kingarrock. This course is adjacent to the St. Andrews Golf Course in Scotland. Holding the position as being the oldest course in the world and, therefore, the home of golf. With this package, guests receive a tour of the Tarvit Mansion House of art and period furnishings, followed by a game of golf without the assistance of modern gear. Instead, golfers will be issued old hickory clubs, traditional balls, and weathered golf bags, which owner of Culinary Latitudes Travel, Rhonda Macier Lathan, claims is “a very unique opportunity.”
