We came as part of a Whisky Tour which only had two of us on it, so we pretty much had a private tour! I believe our guide was called Brian and he was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. The history of this distillery is interesting...More

Had a great visit with Alec today. A great comparison to the bigger distilleries.

Really fascinating to see a distillery where things...More
We had a fascinating tour around the distillery, getting to see and hear the history of Benromach first Hand. Catherine, our guide, was very friendly and informative and showed us round. We visited the distillery on the 20th anniversary of the first bottling and it...More
We visited this distillery as part of a Whisky Tour. The guide was funny and interesting and the distillery has a really traditional feel about it compared to the larger automated distilleries we visited. It has only been reopened for around ten years but they...More
Of the 9 distilleries I visited in Scotland this was probably the quietest and most intimate experience. The tasting expert spent an hour with our group alone. We tried 4 whiskies. The organic is a cool idea. The 10yr and the 10yr 100 proof are...More
Unlike the large Distilleries around, Benromach is not a hightec facility where everything is automated. Hence, the Whiskys are handcrafted products, which, in my opinion, is reflected in their taste. We took a tour which we really enjoyed. Our guide (an elderly gentleman and Whisky...More
Benromach distillery was recommended to me as a great distillery tour that was not like the other more tourist distilleries, and how right they were.
its a tiny distillery that retains many of the hallmarks of distilling from over a century ago. No computer enhancements...More
It was worth it to book the tour which includes four drams. They do a drivers pack for designated drivers. Our guide was funny and enthusiastic about the whisky produced. The experience was a good one even though I honestly can’t stand drinking whisky.

Day 2: We would go on to Forres, Benromach, Nairn, Cawdor Catle and end up in Inverness. Day 3 we would tour Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness and back to Inverness Day 4 Poolewe to see Inverewe Gardens and back to Inverness Day 5 Ballindalloch Castle, Speyside Cooperage, Glenfiddich, Huntly Castle and end...More

Try to fit in a visit to the amazing Dunnottar Castle at Stonehaven , about twenty miles down the coast from Aberdeen. VisitScotland have nominated it as the Scottish entry for a 'eight wonder of the world' competition
Distillery tour dilemma! (3 Replies)
Hello, I would really appreciate your input on which distillery to visit. I will be driving from Edinburgh to Inverness and along the way will stop at Glenfiddich distillery. I also wanted to check out another one after that and cannot decide. Strathisla looks beautiful and Aberlour tour is very appealing. I also saw Benromach is recommended. Since all of them pretty much close around the same time for tours and visits, which combination would you recommend?

They prices is basically all the same. Who is doing your driving for you after you do your multiple "tastings"? You are kidding yourself if you think plain car police don't sit just beyond the exit waiting for you.
