The tour guide Pete was very knowledgeable and friendly with a lovely sense of humour. If you have an couple of hours spare or if you enjoy whiskey this is a great experience. I learned lots and got to try whiskey (which I wouldn't normally drink, and I enjoyed it. Don't read the doom and gloom reviews and be put... More

Even though i am bit young for Whiskey tasting travelling all the way from Berkshire to Scotland was quite a thing! However the tour was a bit short as she lacked a bit of enthusiasm however i still enjoyed the big grouse at the front parking (covered in kisses?) and found the visit quite interesting!

We visited here last week while on holiday in the Crieff area, we've visited on past holidays and enjoyed it so much we wanted to go again. We had a very funny and handsome guide, I think his name was Robert, he did very well despite it seems being reviewed by another member of staff while conducting the tour. We... More

My Scottish husband is whisky drinker and we have visited many, many distilleries over the years including this one over 15yrs ago. My 12yr old daughter enjoys a tour so while visiting in-laws we decided to come here on a rainy summers day! The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, our tour guide especially but what the tour lacked or... More

We went on a very informative tour around the distillery. Although it's called The Famous Grouse Experience in fact they make Glenturret here and the Grouse is blended elsewhere. We enjoyed the tour and tasting but I wish I had read the reviews here before we went! 2 for 1 voucher is a great idea and we also bought the... More

Probably the best tour of its kind that we have experienced. Excellent and well-informed tour guide. Very interesting to see how the distillery works, and very nice little tastings at the end! Cafe/restaurant also excellent and a very good shop too. Great place to visit on a rainy Scottish day.

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
