Short but informative tour about the distillery process. Our guide was very informative and it was really interesting learning about everything. They also let you have a taste, although I did not like it. But then again, I'm not much of a whiskey drinker.

Whilst we did not sample the single malts on offer that day, we would consider going back in the future for an opportunity to dine and sample their different... More

As whisky geeks, we opted for the blending tour and it was as bland and corporate as it gets. For 60 pounds per person, this was very poor value for money. It seems the staff at the distillery have never visited any of their colleagues and I guess an educational trip to places like Laphroaig, Balblair or even Aberfeldy is... More

Enjoyable visit and well layed out. The selling point for this distillery is that you can bottle and label your own individual whisky. Watch out for the locality born Jedi's barrels which out can bottle from.
