Situated on the A81 in Scotland, next to a beautiful wooded area, the Glengoyne distillery sits at the foot of Dumgoyne Hill near Loch Lomond. The distillery was started in 1833 and was known as the Burnfoot Distillery. It changed owners and names a few times, however it has been one of the longest continuously run distilleries in Scotland. It is located right on the line that divides the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. Glengoyne’s stills are in the Highlands while the filled casks of whisky mature across the road in the Lowlands.

Traditionally on New Years Eve we do a Whisky Chocolate Pairing. It has been a tradition on our house for the last couple of years. Choosing the whiskies for our New Years Eve 2014 was quite difficult, as we tasted some wonderful whiskies this year. We chose the whisky chocolate pairing below after much deliberation and the choice is based on our shared and personal favourites.
