After departing from the port of Oban on Saturday 17 May 2025, the sturdy three-masted barquentine Thalassa will take us to Troon in seven days. Accompanied by the whisky expert on board, we will visit distilleries along the way.
Just as France has its regional protection for its wines, Scotland also has its regional classification for its whiskies. On this sailing trip we will visit four of the six: Highlands, Islands, Islay and Campbeltown. This trip is the perfect opportunity to learn to distinguish the differences between the different whiskies and the regional or international characteristics.

Along the way we will encounter distilleries that date back to the late 17th century and distilleries that are only a few years old. All have in common that they make whisky from pure craftsmanship and based on regional characteristics.
Depending on weather and sailing conditions we may visit the following distilleries en route: Oban (before sailing), Ardnamurchan, Tobermory, Jura, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Bowmore, Caol Ila, Bunnahabhain, Ardnahoe, Kilchoman, Bruichladdich, Bushmills, Glen Scotia, Sprinkbank and Glengyle. 

For devotees of Laphroaig with a registration for a plot, this trip is the perfect opportunity to plant the flag and pick up the dram.
During the workshop sessions during the evening we can discuss why you taste what you taste in the whisky, why one whisky is built differently from another despite the fact that the distance from one distillery to another is only a few kilometres and many more trivia. There is ample opportunity to share the flavours of the whiskies.

Besides the Scottish distilleries, we will also make a trip to Bushmills in Northern Ireland. Despite being English territory we classify this whiskey as Irish whiskey.
Of course, instead of a distillery, you can also choose to experience the special landscape of the Scottish islands.
Walks are available near each berth. This region lends itself perfectly to a short excursion or a walk of several kilometres. Our guests should not miss the impressive scenery of the Giant Causeway in Northern Ireland. But there are also beautiful circular walks through local nature reserves around Tobermory and on Islay.
Nautical life can be experienced in the various port towns, such as Port Ellen, Tobermory and Campbeltown. Oban, Campbeltown and Tobermory also have a good range of museums, galleries, shops and local attractions.
Our whisky/Scotland guide will be happy to show you the way.

Wind and weather permitting.
