“Excellent family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Nicely laid out tour of the distillery. Well led by Alice who answered all our questions. Liked the 'notes' bit near the end.
Also lovely food in the cafe.

“Informative and Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Can be relatively expensive but staff very helpfully made some discount offers available to us. The tour lasted about 45 minutes and included some sniffing, tasting and an interactive 3D journey across Scotland. Everyone was very pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. There is a gift shop, though, as you would expect, probably not the cheapest way to buy the goods. I'd certainly recommend it if you want to know more about what you drink or see others drinking.

“Great tour with OK whisky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Rory showed our tour group a fabulous time. He had his one-liners down and he was very knowledgeable about the distilling process. If you've never been to a distillery before, this is a delightful little trip. You see the inner workings of the Famous Grouse site and get to put your nose into all sorts of things. Tastings of various blended varieties followed the tour. The tastings serve as a good introduction to Scotch whisky. With the alcohol in the air, no photos were allowed.
Eveb though I've been to other other distilleries, the Famous Grouse tour, with Rory as tour guide, made the visit worth its while. The young Rory was both educational and entertaining - couldn't ask for more.

“Lovely cosy bar area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Nice gift shop with friendly staff. Upstairs bar area was very cosy and comfortable - we didn't want to leave! We didn't eat in the restaurant but it looked lovely too, and all we could hear were positive comments from people who had eaten there. Would definitely like to return so we can sample the restaurant food.

“Great tour, lovely tasting, great dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We went with a group of 15 persons and started 8pm with the tour. If you can ask for Alasdair, very professional, a lot of passion and definitely someone who can entertain groups. Also the movie is great (although after a couple of tastings :). A very nice tasting of the blended and the single malts.
Afterwards we had a 5 course dinner with whiskies. Food was fantastic, the choice of whisky in combination with ginger, apple, etc spectacular.
A very nice, tasty and great experience!
