“Great Distillery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This distillery is a major contributor to Chivas Regal and so is not well known as a single malt, but is one of the oldest distillers in Scotland and the tour of the buildings is a fantastic experience. Very 'home style' in the tour with wonderful stories regarding the people working there and their experiences.

“If you must visit only one distillery, this is it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

It may not be the home of the most popular whisky, but if you must visit only one distillery in Scotland, make it Strathisla.

It is truly the prettiest and it’s not too big, just the right size for a tour. As there weren’t many guests we got a guide to ourselves, a wonderful man who happened to have worked in the distillery for 40 years. His experience and the richness of his stories made the distillery’s history come alive.

The tour takes an hour and is capped off by a tasting of 3 whiskies, with a very well done explanation and tasting chart (which you get to keep). Well worth the 6£ admission.

“Excellent "Cask Experience"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had booked the "Cask Experience" and it was an excellent experience. Our guide was very personable and had great knowledge. The distillery is beautiful throughout and the extra places you see on this tour make you feel very special, as do the excellent quality whiskys that you get to taste throughout the tour plus the great tasting session at the end. This tour must be a to do, for any whisky fan.

“If you like Chivas Regal - a visit is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

One of the most beautiful distilleries I've been to! The outside is as well kept as the lounge inside! A very warm decor in the lounge with a great tasting session. Our family loved it. Have already been here 3 times. Look forward to more such visits
