Had a lovely time at the distillery, very busy place considering how remote the location is. If you'd like to avoid being disappointed on arrival when tours are fully booked I suggest you phone in advance and check and possibly reserve yourself a spot. Clearly some folk on here couldn't do that and would like to blame the staff for... More

We enjoyed an hour's visit to this distillery, learning all about how whisky is made - when I was disabused of the thought that it is all to do with the water. The excellent guide, Danny, explained the secret is in the shape of the stills. For only £7, you are given a complete tour of the factory (as that... More

Bad bad bad. Whiskey served in plastic cups and no information avalible on their products, no tour spots avalible, poor information from staff whom seemd cluless. I would recomend anyone who want to go here to go when it is winter and less people maybe the service will be better but who knows.

I highly recommend the tour and the whisky! Guide was nice young man and a native of Skye which made it all that much more enjoyable. This is a very good, peaty Scotch and worth the price!

We visited the Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye recently and were blown away by the amazing samples of Skye's only distillery. My daughter and I were in Scotland from the States and came as part of a day-tour of the isle. The taste is very distinctive and echoes the seaside ambiance - we tried the 10 year old,... More

We received a tasting tour from a lady named Susan. Having visited many other distilleries, this was one of the worst tours we have had. Susan was not interested in explaining anything, she just tried to 'get it over with'. At the end of the tour, some participants had no idea about the process of whisky making. A real pity,... More

Very good tour of immaculate distillery. Young lad who showed us round was funny and informative and knew his stuff. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was amazing to see how they make whisky. And it is perfect to stop by the oyster farm close by for lunch.

Interesting tour of the distillery. Might be worthwhile booking online to save the long wait, as it's very popular.

Very entertaining tour from Lorne (not sure of spelling). Great smells and many interesting facts and a taste of the 10 year old for £7. After a few previous dodgy experiences at other distilleries I found the whisky prices in the shop here were actually cheaper than elsewhere, especially with the £3 voucher from the tour. The 'friends' book for... More
