Aug '15, £7.50 for a 1 hr tour, plus a tasting of 4 whiskys, fantastic value! Our tour guide was Alison, very knowledgeable and engaging with an ability to make things easily understandable. The setting and buildings of the distillery are also worth the fee alone. Highly recommended

Having visited several of the larger distilleries in Speyside over the years, we decided to visit Strathisla, the oldest distillery in Scotland. What a great decision! The tour we received was informative, amusing and, in character with the distillery itself, intimate. However, the best thing was the tasting - four whiskies, all described very knowledgeably by our excellent host Bartosz,... More

We went for the tour and what impressed us most was the tasting. Our guide was a new member to the company and obviously a whisky enthusiast himself. Excellent job. The distillery is pretty and has a beautiful waiting area. We went through a few books waiting for the tour.

We were passing by and thought, why not let's give it a visit. We struck gold, Kimberley was in the shop and took us on the tour, in our group it was just us! We were shown all aspects of the whiskey making process and she was extremely knowledgeable. After the tour came the tasting. We then went into the... More

It's no wonder a lot of couples have their wedding photographs take here, it's a very picturesque and beautiful place. It's one of Scotland's oldest (if not the oldest, I can't remember) distilleries. The tour was really good - it was fun and informative and the tasting at the end of the four whiskeys was really good. There are some... More

My parents and I visited here today and we were impressed by the visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable which made the visit better. The highlight was the tasting sessions after our visit. Since we were driving they had convenient plastic bottles for sale where the unconsumed drams could be stored for later consumption.

We visited on a silent day when the distillery wasn't in operation however this made it a better experience as some maintenance was underway. This enabled the ability to see inside things when they were not in use so you had a better look and got a real sense of the size of some of the apparatus. A very informative... More

This Distillery is the one of the most beautiful und oldest distilleries in the Speyside. She is the draft horse of the well know Chivas Regal.
