Did a VIP tour and was the only person on it. Rowan was my guide and she gave a great tour and was full of knowledge of how the casks were made.

The visitors centre was great, and there was a nice wee cafe there. Everything was spotless.

Would thoroughly recommend anybody with an interest in whisky pays a visit here.

I first visited the Cooperage 2 years ago and whilst I enjoyed the tour then, the slight changes they’ve made now makes it that much more enjoyable!

The tour was just under an hour long. There’s a 5-10 minute video you watch at the beginning which introduces coopering and then the tour guide takes over, hosting the tour on the first floor above the workshop where you can see the experienced coopers and their apprentices. It’s a brilliant experience and a very informative tour.

At the end, you’ve given a sample of their own whisky to enjoy.

Clean toilets on site, plenty of parking and a small gift shop where you can buy up-cycled products amongst other souvenirs.

Booking is a must, we visited on a Friday mid-morning in October and there was just under 20 of us on the tour.

The shop has been moved and is very much smaller so considerably less stock. It’s also the same place as the start of the tour so gets packed at times. The cafe is closed aswell 😞 this was a must visit on our bi yearly trips to the area but not much point in coming back again now.

Love this visit! I highly recommend checking this place out. It tells an often overlooked part of the whisky story and shows the physicality, skill and rhythm of Scottish manufacturing. The team here are amazing and don’t forget to try the Stags Breath! 🥃

On the recommendation of our hotel owner, we booked into the Speyside Cooperage tour.
Absolutely fantastic attraction. Short video followed by guided tour of the cooperage. Amazing history and first class experience.
Highly recommend.

What a superb place to visit - the tour prices were very reasonable & after the film explaining everything our guide was very informative & answered any questions we might have.Fantastic to see apprentices being trained there, with no lack of applicants! A true craft, kept alive by the Whisky Industry.... new barrels being made but also old ones repaired - to be used again. Altogether a fascinating tour. Our thanks to all!

Spent a few minutes reviewing the displays in the center. It is small but worth perusing while you wait for the tours.

An introductory film clip starts the tour of the cooperage then onto the viewing gallery where you can watch the Coopers skills and knowledge put into action. The Tour Guide was very friendly/ knowledgeable and enthusiastic of the whole process as well. Definitely worth the visit...only £4.00 each
