Despite flooding in Elgin today, the distillery was surprisingly dry and ready for tours at 9:30am. Glen Moray distillery is a great place to visit, especially for those based in Elgin or those passing through who may not have the time to venture further up the Spey Valley for some of the more famous or widely distributed whisky distilleries.

It is "handy" to be more than one to make tasting. Five persons can choose five different types, pass the glasses and then have a lot more tasting to do, than have one single glass. This opinion is colored by a "life" (from 1963 till d.d.) in the scouts. We were walked thorugh the plant with a very good guide... More

Light lunch with family including young family members @ Glen Moray distillery cafe . Nice little menu, with nice choices, including daily fresh soup menu! Glen moray smoked salmon platter with cheeses and chutney excellent, as were soups! Meringues, raspberries and Glen Moray ice cream, tip top! Would highly recommend for a light lunch! Service from servers very good too!

We came across this distillery by chance and decided to take a tour. Our tour guide Liam was giving us a tailored tour and then alowed us to taste some drams of Glen Moray. Despite that we are more attracted to the Islay style, smokey whiskies, this is not a bad one. And since a ne peated version of Glen... More

Opening hours for the cafe are 0900 to whatever, Arrived 0915 to find the waitress hoovering around the tables. The menu was quite extensive but when scones were ordered we were told they wouldn't be ready until 1000 as the ovens take time to heat up and the soup had to be made! Why open at 0900 if you cannot... More

I have been around 20 or so distilleries and this was one of the best tours I have been on. The distillery has a splendid Visitor Centre with an excellent cafe and shop. The distillery itself is very well presented and there is plenty to see for the first-time visitor and for distillery nuts. The guide (Liam) certainly knew his... More

Another interesting distillery tour. The girl doing the tour was very nice and knew her stuff. She took us through the process of whisky making and was able to answer all questions surrounding the process. The shop and cafe area is quite small but really nice. The tour was only £4 and includes a souvenir wristband and whisky tasting at... More

Travelling with my wife and 2 other couples. Very welcoming distillery. They have a nice café area outside and they have great café. The tour was very instructive and funny. Our guide was Liam. He was very helpful. The site is very nice, we took great pictures. We learned a lot on the whisky making. Awesome tour, worth it for... More

We did not make the tour, just visit the distillery and dropped into the shop. Great café on site, very nice staff. The surrounding is pleasant, and the shop small but very nice. A taste from a choice of three single malts is free if you are not interested in a tour. And: although Glen Moray is a non-peated Single... More

We had a fantastic afternoon at Glen Moray distillery. The tour was really interesting and fun with a great tasting at the end. Our tour guide, Liam (?) was fantastic, full of knowledge and really friendly. Couldn't believe he had only been there for two weeks! Would highly recommend a trip here even if you are not a massive fan... More
