Great time here tasting the lovely malts on offer. We seemed to spend longer in the shop than we did on the tour though. its a well run tour, very informative and fun. I think the teapot dram is my new favourite malt. Fabulous. Thank you to all for a great day out.

Booked into the Whiskey master class tour which was excellent. Kathy our tour guide was very knowledgeable about her product. It was also a cold day but she was very cheerful. We got to taste one 10 year old and one 18 year old and also a blended whiskey. In the master class you get to make your own by... More

My tour of Glengoyne certainly brightened up a rather grey and dismal Sunday afternoon. I went along with my dad on a master blender tour which was bought as a Christmas present for him. From the very beginning we were immersed in the distillery and its beautiful surroundings (an old waterfall that used to provide the water supply for the... More

Bought this for my partner and dad's Christmas through a voucher deal. Worth every penny. The tour lasts over an hour and a half and extremely informative. You get to make your own Whisky at the end which is a real treat. Definitely recommended.

Spent a fascinating few hours at this picturesque and interesting distillery. Well worth a visit. The staff know their stuff and are rightly proud of their product. Of course you are then tempted to spend in the shop, but you would be wouldn't you?

Did a blender tour. Made my own whisky. Great fun and very unique. Alistair was a great tour guide. Just make sure you are not the designated driver that day!!! Worth the scenic drive. Good parking at location too.

visited the distillery few times over the last few years. Beautiful buildings in a beautiful setting. The tasting tours are grand. I had finished off the last bottle of teapot dram I had and had a pang for another. Fine malts and a great crowd a folk that work there too.

With 3 of my pals, using Itson vouchers, we all thought this was the best tour we had done. It started with an introduction from Bill, our guide for the visit, a short informative video and, guess what, a wee dram taster. It was then onto the tour and Bill was so knowledgeable and presented in a very intersting talk,... More
