We had an early Tour at 10 o clock with our guide Paul and it was very interesting. We felt completely comfortable and Paul knew a perfect answer to every question. Thank you!

We had a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide, illustrating easily and with humor the creating of the Scottish water of life. Clean distillery buildings, interesting show and sales rooms. No pressure to buy.

Just got back from a visit to the Blair Athol destillery. We went on the managers selection tour and it was an amazing experience. We had the tour with David and I would give him a sixth star if possible. Definetly recommended.

We stopped on our way north to seek out a number of other distilleries and got a very warm welcome and an interesting tour around the distillery. On 16apr19 mid morning it was busy so booking ahead would seem like a good plan.
