I first visited the distillery when it was first opened with friends from America. That was before the whisky was matured enough for tastings and sales. This time I visited to buy souvenirs and for a bite to eat in the cafe. All staff were...More

Thank you to all
This is the only distillery that I have visited which draws its water from a subterranean artesian well. As part of the visit you get to taste the water and how refreshing it is. The visitor centre is well organised and well laid out and...More
I visited here with my 91 year old mother. I knew this was a new build and therefore should be disabled friendly. The disabled parking was right beside the lovely smooth path. The doors were wide and, even better, a lovely member of staff saw...More

I hope you enjoy your trip. Distillery choices depend on your spirits of choice. There are now many craft gin distilleries across the UK, but because you asked in the context of a Scotch whisky review, I will stick to those.
Distances & transport are the key deciding factors.
Speyside offers the highest concentration of well known single malt distilleries, and chose those you know and love (eg Glenfiddich). You will learn a great deal of new stuff & taste different varieties not generally available.
If peaty Islays are your preference (eg Ardbeg) then a trip to the island is in order. Otherwise, visit those you can include in your itinerary. Distances are very small compared with Oz, but roads much smaller & slower too.
My favourite distillery tour was Highland Park on Orkney before they opened a visitor centre. The tour was informal, led by distillery employees and ended with the most generous tasting session.
Enjoy your trip!
