Lovely tour of the distillery given by Alec. It was really cool to learn the history of the distillery and awesome to see everything first hand. Would definitely recommend checking out Benromach!

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.

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.
