Having read some of the reviews of this distillery- it is always best to book ( by phone) in advance then you will not be disappointed. This is general in my experience ( about 20 distilleries). I booked that morning - "would I like the 11am tour or at least 3 other options?" I arrived at 10.30am and was kindly... More

The basic tour is just that - basic... a good introduction to whisky production at a medium sized distillery, but with little in the way of insight. The highly competent guide was careful only to mention other Diageo distilleries when making comparisons which made it feel a bit 'corporate' to me. All that said I die enjoy my time there.... More

Very informative tour with friendly guide who was able to answer any questions. Even as someone who isn't a whiskey drinker it was a great tour.

Great shop full of limited edition whisky and the latest product Skye only released last week. The tour is very informative £8 for adults but worth it if you like Talisker as you get to try it at the end.

Having been 2 years ago we were keen to take our son who'd missed that visit. Although it's a bit of a drive from where we live its a scenic route and the location of the distillery is also picturesque. As Classic Malt members entry was free for us (should've been £8 each) and we still each got our £3... More

The Talisker Distillery Is one of the best tours that I have been on. If you are a whiskey fan then you must try and get onto the full tasking tour. It's £35 and only runs at 13:30 on Mon, Tue, Thu and Fri. It's also very popular so make sure that you book ahead on the phone. The tour... More

This distillery tour was one of the more restrictive tours we had visited. No cameras allowed anywhere in the distillery. Our guide was very hard to hear and she did not share anything distinctive about Talisker. It was not until we paid an extra amount to taste their master distillers special blends were we extremely pleased with our tour. Not... More
