What a great tour! Very delicious tasters, knowledgable friendly guide. I'm not usually a whisky drinker, but now I'm converted to the dram. Definitely worth the trip!

We did the basic 45 minute tour at the pensioner rate as light relief from the WHW tramp. This is a small but well organised and friendly distillery. Our young guide was excellent and was able to answer all questions. The malt was excellent. There is a well displayed shop with lots to buy. Recommended

I visited Glengoyne Distillery today with two friends. Initially intending to wander round the shop I started to talk to a member of staff as I had a couple of questions on the different malts. Alastair chatted to us and impressed us all with his knowledgeable and friendly manner. No sales pitch, no pressure just honest comment and really useful... More

Could do with a larger area to wait whilst waiting for a tour in the rain as was asked to move from the reception area and we had already looked around the shop.However,the tour itself was interesting even for non whisky drinkers.Tour guide very friendly and knowledgeable.The shop area is gleaming .my husband enjoyed the whisky.

This family owned distillery is small, traditional and still doing everything very slowly. Their knowledge of the product and the process was exciting to experience. They offer a variety of tours from £7.50 through to £20. We spent a wonderful hour with an experienced guide exploring the site and tasting the most beautiful whiskey.
