Take a peek inside the Guinness Storehouse and four single malt Scotch whisky distilleries
We've partnered with Google’s Business View® to launch a free 360° virtual tour that will allow people to see inside the walls of our famous Guinness Storehouse and four single malt scotch whisky distilleries in Scotland live from their laptops, iPads and other digital devices.
Feature 02 FEB 2015
This inside look into the Guinness Storehouse at St. James's Gate in Dublin, the number one visitor attraction in Ireland, is now available to the general public. The 360° virtual tour covers all seven floors of the building, including the top-floor Gravity®Bar, the highest bar in the city.
Our participation in Google's Business View accompanies the availability of Guinness Storehouse® on Google Indoor Maps and Street View, giving the public access to view the landmark with the full line of related offerings through Google.
Four of our single malt scotch whisky distilleries: Cardhu, the Singleton of Glen Ord, Talisker and Lagavulin, will now also be available for online 360° virtual tours through Google Business View. This offers people the opportunity to tour Diageo distilleries that sit in remote parts of Scotland, from the coast of Kildalton to the Black Isle, encouraging them to discover the story behind these world-renowned brands regardless of whether they are able to travel there in person.
“People travel from all over the world to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin and to our distilleries in Scotland to learn about the heritage and provenance of their favourite brands. Google Business View brings the immersive experience of visiting these famous landmarks to people regardless of where they are in the world. Seeing and feeling the incredible history, craft and quality first-hand will bring them closer to the brands they love. This is a great example of how we are using cutting-edge technology to pay tribute to centuries-old traditions.”Venky Balakrishnan
