If you’ve ever dreamed of distilling your own whisky, or if you simply love the golden liquid, then this Airbnb stay is certainly the one for you.

Annandale Distillery is listing the immersive experience on Airbnb in celebration of Scottish Whisky Month, and forms part of a wider campaign that encourages people to visit the Scottish Lowlands.

The two-night stay, which will be available for a limited time this summer, offers guests the chance to stay in a cottage on the distillery site, get hands on with the distilling process, and enjoy an evening meal the historic Globe Inn, Dumfries.

David Thomson & Teresa Church, owners of Annandale Distillery said:

“One of the principal reasons why we decided to restore Annandale Distillery was our burning desire to re-introduce Scotch Whisky production to Southern Scotland, based on the conviction that this region of Scotland has everything required, but most especially the climate and the abundance of water, to produce first class Single Malts. This stay on Airbnb gives us the chance to involve guests behind the scenes and show them that the Scotch Whisky produced at Annandale is more than a product, it’s a labour of love! Enticing visitors to our part of Scotland is not only good for us but also for other local businesses.”

Amanda Cupples, General Manager for Northern Europe at Airbnb added:

“Many tourists pass through the Lowlands on their way to the Highlands and other areas of Scotland, without realising all the incredible experiences they’re missing out on. The stay at Annandale Distillery is truly a unique experience for whisky lovers, and an opportunity to visit somewhere they might not have considered before.”
