It follows revised Covid-19 measures from the Scottish government, which dictated that all distillery experiences had to pause from Saturday 10 October to Monday 26 October.
While its in-person experiences can't take place, Glengoyne will be helping people share a dram with their nearest and dearest at home with online tastings. Participants are led through four malt whiskies by one of Glengoyne's distillery ambassadors and given a chance to learn more about its liquids from a special at-home tasting kit. The kit includes the Glengoyne 10 Years Old, 12 Years Old and 18 Years Old plus a mystery dram, as well as a branded glass.
The virtual experiences kick off on Thursday 15 October and participants can sign up on the Glengoyne website.
Its on-site shop will remain open for customers to pick up a bottle of their favourite, or new releases such as Legacy Series: Chapter Two and Cask Strength Batch No. 008. Staff will still be on hand to answer questions and visitors can also take a peek at the whisky makers at work.
Stuart Hendry, brand homes director at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: "In these challenging times it is important to reward ourselves with moments to savour - and we at Glengoyne want to ensure fans take the time to do just that.
"For locals enjoying an autumnal stroll in the crisp outdoors, our distillery will remain open – burrowed at the foot of the Campsie Hills – where our staff can help you select a bottle of single malt to take home. For those looking to enjoy a night in with their loved ones, the relaunch of our online tasting experiences is sure to raise a smile. Whether it be virtually or at your distillery, we look forward to seeing you all and raising a dram to you."
The Glengoyne team will be contacting people who had tours and tastings booked within the closure window to rearrange or refund their tickets in the coming days.
