We recently visited Skye on a really horrible windy raining day and this proved to be a great indoor stop off! Informative and well run and great product at the end... Would say go even like me your not a great scotch fan but enjoy a wee dram.

Very busy, that was the first thing that struck me. We were given a tour time for roughly an hour after we arrived. It was very informative and I still love the smell! Purchased a Talisker 10 afterwards and would urge anybody to come and visit, it's great :)

A very good place if You're interested in Scotch Whisky and details how is it done; we've been here in bad weather time so not a best time for outdoor impressions... but a distillery itself worth visiting. Please doublecheck ticket availability BEFORE driving there :)

Unfortunately no time to do the tour; but visited the store. Of course tried and bought a Talisker. Decided to buy the limited Distillers Edition. A very good try. The road to the Distillery is one to remember! Go ahead and enjoy.

Waterfront Distillery....had a great tour and got some merchandise which is of good quality. For my wife who is not a scotch enthusiast, she enjoyed learning how the water of life is made and even enjoyed the little taste at the end. We drove over from Inverness and it is a lovely drive along Loch Ness.

We enjoyed an excellent tour at Talisker thanks to Laura, who took the small group there at 10.30am around the distillery, explaining all the processes. The smells were wonderful, and of course at the end there was the bonus of a taste of one of their malts. You can also taste some of the other malts available in the shop.... More

Talisker Distillery certainly ranks as one of the more picturesque places. The place is set in a quiet and tranquil area surrounded by amazing mountains and sea. The tour guide was informative and willing to take any questions that we have. Their in-house shop has the single malts and other brands eg. Glenlivet under the Diageo name. Was a little... More
