Very friendly guide and reasonably priced at £10 each which includes 2 tasters at the end. I particularly liked the homage to the distillery cat.

This is my first disappointing review. I have been to many whisky distillieries in scotland and enjoyed them all. I felt the price for the tour was very expensive. It lasted less than 30 minutes before we went to taste the whisky. There were lots of Heath and safety issues other distillieies don't have. Phone had to be off incase... More

We are one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland; we produce whisky in a hand-made, traditional way. Our Stillmen proudly hand-operate the last Mash Tun of its kind left in Scotland. As... More

We were here on a Saturday and it was a small group. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The tour was just nice, not so slick as you would expect from such a famous brand. It was one of the nicest tours we had on the many distilleries we visited. The restaurant on site is good. Really would... More

Took advantage of this visit whilst visiting Pitlochry (Enchanted Forest) on Saturday 25th October and were not disappointed. Interesting tour of the facility in a public group. We arrived unannounced but were quickly assembled with others, allocated a guide and were enjoying our tour within 15 minutes.

An enjoyable visit to Scotland’s oldest working whisky distillery. For a reasonable admission price, we learnt about whisky production from an informative and humorous tour guide, enjoyed a tasting and the film show. Having built up an appetite, lunch was next in the Cafe before a visit to the gift shop for some pre-departure souvenirs. What an experience, it’s no... More
