Just visited this distillery which is just up the road from where I live courtesy of a gift voucher from my daughter for Christmas. The voucher was badged as the malt master experience and was for two people. On arrival we were treated to a wee dram of 12 year old while watching a dvd of the whisky process and... More

Yesterday I visited the Glengoyne Distillery. I was travelling on my motorbike and arrived quite wet due to the rain. The lady at the reception of the visitor center was very helpful and offered to store the helmet, gloves and rain-jacket for me. That was very kind. I booked the basic tour and enjoyed it a lot. It starts with... More

We were afraid we wouldn't make it out to the distillery before the last tour so we paid way too much for a cab out there (but took the #10 bus back). Luckily, it was worth it. The tour was informative, we all enjoyed it (even those of us who are not whisky lovers). The room were they show the... More

Decided to visit Glengoyne distillery today, special treat for me given its my birthday. We went for the Wee tasting tour, basically a 1hr tour with 2 drams, not bad for £11. Good tour but unfortunately another tour just behind us and the tour guide on the 2nd tour was a little louder than ours, just made it a bit... More

The tour was nice, but there was too few technical details for me. It was nice to enjoy some whisky in the warm, dry room when there was storm outside. The landscape aroun, including the waterfall, is charming.

Two words. Malt master. If you are a whisky lover this tour and experience is well worth it. Interesting history on a distiller I didn't know much about and a good look behind the scenes about how whisky is made. The best part of the malt master tour is creating your own blend. After you learn about the casks and... More

I don't tend to drink whiskey, but I gained more respect for this drink and the people who work hard to make it. Glengoyne does a great job in showing you all aspects of the distillery. The distillery is very clean, the tour guides are very informative and the product is quite enjoyable. Slàinte!

We did the 5 hour Master Class that goes into such great detail, includes many samplings ad the opportunity to blend our own whisky. A real treat and great education. If you like single mat a must do!
