Great tour, our guide definitely loved his job and was so informative and interesting. I learnt more in that single tour than all the other brewery and distillery tours I’ve done. Not just about the process but about the business and industry.

Had a great hour or so at the distillery, Fiona was extremely knowledgeable, personable and a great asset to the distillery. We ended up taking the bottle your own option, and were treated like royalty, such a treat in today’s fast moving world. Thanks Fiona...More
