So much to say about this place. Seemingly endless options for tastings and Isla was knowledgeable about ALL of them. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Delicious. Worth the trip. Go. Here.

Visit to this beautiful distillery organised as part of another trip Welcomed and shown round by the very informative and soon to be retired Lorraine ... this is a great afternoon activity and tasting event, which includes a drivers pack for those who cannot partake! And in a most beautiful part of the country, with friendly Highland Cows too 🙂

I happened to go on a day where there was no other people on the tour. Lorraine was my guide and she was brilliant. Lorraine had a great knowledge of the distillery and was able to bring memories from her childhood of her father working at another distillery. Her knowledge of Whisky was great. The tour went for a bit less than an hour and the packing/warehouse area was closed so I did not get to see that. I was driving so took the sample Whisky with me, but did a smelling sampling with Lorraine which was good. The Johnnie walker experience is closed at the moment. Overall worth a visit, though it was a bit difficult to find as the postcode does not come up in the GPS.

We visit Cardhu yesterday for a tour and whiskey tasting session. Lorraine was our guide and she was fanstastic, her knowledge was excellent and she was extremely accomadating, as two of our members couldn't make it, she bottled the whiskey so they didn't miss out. The experience was fantastic and I would definatly recommend the tour to anyone. Lorraine told us she was retiring in the coming weeks, we wish her a very happy retirement.
