Dropped by on a mid week afternoon, but both the micro-distillery and the hotel next door were shut-up. Checking with the owners of the Aultbea hotel down in the village, the owners had given up and moved away. Shame - looked as if it would...More

Interesting, informative and fun,, John the host tells a great well rehearsed story that introduces the art of whiskey distilling through the ages, take the tour it's very informative and presents a very interesting view of the days when the distilling of whiskey was rife.
