I went with a teenager who was interested in the making of whiskey. Going to be honest, not a lot about "the famous grouse" but more about glen livett whisky. some of the larger distilleries have more interesting tours, but good none the less.

The guided tour takes about an hour or so, and you learn the process of whisky production at various steps. If you’re lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of their current resident kitten wandering around (although Towser the record-breaking cat will always remain the star cat of the distillery). The Guinness Record winning bottle of whisky is also not to be... More

I don't drink the stuff personally but my partner does, so as we were staying in the area and I had been on the tour many years ago I thought it would be the ideal activity. Not disappointed - excellent tour and the guide - Kier was very well informed and answered ant questions. Particularly liked that when I asked... More

Hi folks, Our friend is celebrating his 65th birthday soon, so for something different we thought we would give him a bottle of his favourite tipple. So we went to the grouse distillery just outside Creiff. What a lovely experience seeing how the famous grouse whiskey is produced. Later we had a walk round the distillery shop, what a selection...

We visited the Famous Grouse experience in June and overall thought it was a really interesting experience. The guide, Alistair was knowledgable and engaging and we got to taste two different drinks. The IMAX experience was ok, I think it could be improved a bit as I don't think it's being used at its potential. Overall a really interesting tour,... More

We were in Crieff for a night away and decided to go to TFGE before we came home. Our landlady gave us a 2 for 1 voucher so it worked out at just £5 each for me and my wife for the tour! Our guide, Pete, was polite, and knowledgeable (as should be expected) and took time to explain things... More

We had a very pleasant walk to the distillery from Crieff Hydro earlier this week, but as the tour times did not suit us, we just visited the shop and the cafe, The whole set-up looks very professional, and I am certain that the tour would have been worthwhile. However, we purchased a bottle of the 10 year old Glen... More

Dear Tonythemonk, Thank you very much for reviewing your visit with us. We're really glad to hear that you thought our set-up was professional :) Unfortunately we don't have pricing control on nearby independent shops for our 10 year old and we price our single malt at the distillery according to its rarity and craft style production. Thank you again... More

I evolved from young rocker with a bottle of Jack to a scotch in my mature days, so was very keen to start visiting working distilleries. The tour was great and interesting with the guide more than happy to answer any questions and was very knowledgeable. Left with a personalised bottle which I was chuffed with although I would love...

Being a real ale drinker, I was curious to see how a distillery would compare to a brewery and hence the decision was made to visit this place. And the tour does not disappoint.
