We came here as it is just down the road from my parents' house and I had never been here, despite it being so close. We were greeted warmly by a lady who offered to take us on the tour and a few minutes later, another couple came in, so the 4 of us were taken on the tour. It... More

Due to a road closure we were about 45 minutes late, but that was no problem at all (we did phone ahead). Very friendly staff and our tour guide had some good stories and of course something unique to tell regarding the distillery. Tasting was good, with two standard edition, but also the (then) yet to be released limited edition.... More

This is Scotland's second oldest distillery and you have probably never heard of it. A very nice Spey side scotch. The tour was very informative and such a beautiful setting! Thank you.

Even though we went on a Saturday it was very quiet and we had our own guided tour for the four of us. It was very interesting and our guide was very good and explained all things clearly. The setting was lovely and and the whole distillery was extremely clean and sparkling. Highly recommended and the wee dram was enjoyed... More

Superb small authentic distillery, easily accessible, great friendly staff, informative tour by superb guide. Whiskey smooth, full bodied, wonderful warmth on a frosty, dreig day. A definite 'to do' on your places to visit. Thank you we thoroughly enjoyed it!

One of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and a beautiful setting. The tour is excellent and really informative, you really get a feel for the history of this distillery when you are there, and of course a wee dram to taste, nice souvenir shop to finish off your visit

My mate Alan and I visited, Denise was our wonderful guide. She answered all our questions and politely listened to all our pointless anecdotes with great charm. The tour was informative, the site much larger than it appears from the road. There is a small charge but this is offset by the generous dram at the end, served in a... More

Visited Fettercairn distilery on our way from Stonehaven to Stirling. It is located just in the outskirts of the picturesque village of Fettercairn and both the village and the distillery are well worth short a visit when you are driving by.
