Dufftown is the central point on the whisky trail around the glens of Speyside and is extremely popular with tourists and day-trippers. The town is the biggest exporter of whisky in Britain and there are still many working distilleries in the town, including The Balvenie and The Glenfiddich (Glenfiddich being the largest of them all). There is a Whisky Museum situated in the town explaining the history of whisky making and the town is the central point for the Speyside Whisky Festival, held twice a year and is a must for enthusiasts and whisky afficiandos the world over.
