Hundreds of people are expected to attend a festive fete at a historic Aberdeenshire venue next weekend.
One of the oldest distilleries in Scotland will open its doors for its Rare Fayre Christmas between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, December 7.
It will be the fourth year Glen Garioch, in Oldmeldrum, has hosted the unique event.
Last year’s attendance was the best yet with more than 700 people turning out – and organisers at the distillery, founded in 1797, are hoping to improve on that figure this time around.
There will be whisky tastings, tours and masterclasses on offer, as well as local food and craft stands.
The event will also mark the launch of the distillery’s brand new product, the Glen Garioch Missouri Single Cask 1363.
A spokeswoman for the distillery said: “This is the perfect opportunity to discover a ‘rare find’ and gift ideas for the festive season.
“The beautiful, old distillery will open its doors and is set to embrace the yuletide celebrations with a busy day of exclusive whisky tasting experiences, tours and masterclasses.
“The fayre will also boast a range of mouth-watering foods and interesting, unique crafts brought to you from a selection of talented local producers.
“Warm up with a traditional ‘hot toddy’ with the distillery team and relax in the atmospheric old granite buildings, as you sample and savour the honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture of the Glen Garioch range.”
