Second stop on my whiskey tour.

Tour included 3 tasting samples in the really nice corporate space on the second floor. The host for the tasting was very knowledgeable. This tasting had a nice layout with samples poured out already with a glass disc on top. Also water and a pipit were available. It was a nice learning experience to taste the whiskey before and after a couple of drops of water were added.

They have a little café located on site. The tour had an option of ordering a sandwich at extra cost. If you have time or prefer, you can opt to bring your own lunch. I ordered food which included a sandwich, chips, cookie, and a drink. It was not a bad deal and was sufficient for a quick lunch.

The tour did not include a tour of the facilities. After one tour, it was ok not to visit the distillery or warehouse. I had a fantastic time just walking around the gift shop.

Good start

Glenlivet was the first distillery we had a tour at. Our group was consisting of both intermediate whisky fans as well as the veterans. And it turned out to be the great way to level grounds. The tour wasn't particularly exciting or diligent but it had everything it had to. And a word of advice - save some time for the shop - they have whisky of the day which is usually unique and offered in really approachable price. Sláinte!

Great distillery tour

We’ve done a good number of distillery tours already in the last year, but its always good visiting different ones. Glenlivet is up there with being one of my favourites. The new extension to the still house looks smart with all the stonework and compliments the existing buildings. The tourguide (Shirley) was very informative, and a very cheery person who knows her whiskys and the industry very well.

Great tour...
Apr 2019
Booked the tour in advance as recommended. How lucky were my wife and I! Only the two of us on the tour and felt spoilt. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The distillery visitor centre is fairly new and contemporary but the actual distillery is very traditional, right down to the wooden wash backs. The tasting session topped off a good tour. My wife was the designated driver, so purchased the drivers package, which consists of five small sample bottles packaged in their box so the drams can be tasted back home. Not all tours have this option.
Definitely recommend this tour.

The visitor experience was excellent - great location and fantastic whisky samples. The tour was most enjoyable, as was the café. The shop also offered an outstanding selection of whiskies and other memorabilia.

One of the Best Distilleries on our Rabie's Whiskey Tor
Oct 2019
Our first distillery of the morning and Tanya, our tour guide could not have been more friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. After a tour of the facilities we settled down to some tasting, that which was part of the tour and additional whiskies. In all six excellent whiskies tasted. And Glenlivet is expanding to meet the demand. Very much worth a stop when visiting Scotland and touring.

My dad throughly enjoyed his visit specifically how similar he looked to the person in this picture. Lovely place to visit and the staff were great. The tour guide couldn't believe how similar my dad looked to the picture.

Beautifully presented showcase of the Glenlivet production centre
Oct 2019
Magnificent presentation by a female tour guide. Accompanied by some tasting sessions of the finest scotch whiskey. An excellent exhibition of Glenlivet Whiskey history. The shop is adorable. To top it all of scrumptios whiskey cake and whiskey ice cream at the Glenlivet Cafe. Truly compelling. A MUST SEE
