Very historic distillery. Our guide was a local uni student but presented well and had a good grasp on the whole process, but does not drink whisky! The tasting at the end had 4 whisky's, two blended, a grain and a 12 year old Strathisla. Would recommend this tour.

We visited the distillery on a scorching hot day. We booked a guided tour and bought two driver's packs of empty bottles to put our whisky in, as my husband was driving and I do not drink. Anna was our tour guide. She was very informative. The tour was excellent, as we were shown whisky production from start to finish.... More

Informative tour of the distillery - out guide was very clear and helped us understand everything there is to know and see about making Scottish whisky! We also got to take pictures of the equipment as well from the outside, which the other distilleries we went to did not allow. We really wanted one so we can show our friends!

3rd distillery tour of the weekend. Ross was a great guide, not a big group but the majority were from Germany. Ross guided us through the tour explaining well what went on in the various areas we were in. Never rushed us at any time and happy to answer questions if he could, as well as not answering any question... More

Aesthetically pleasing distillery in the town of Keith. Great location with a beautiful exterior. Tour is standard tour material but its good points are its small nature despite being owned by the global Chivas brand (French backed). Relaxed nature of the tour made it comfortable and the guide was happy to chat away with everyone. Dramming room is intimate and... More

We visited this distillery on 13/7/16 and we were given the tour by Ross. He was professional, enthusiastic and very informative on the whole process. This distillery is a must! Thankyou for such a lovely visit!

Guide Ross was nice and very knowledgeable. There were only the 4 of us on the tour so it felt more intimate, unrushed. It is silent season so there was no whisky being made, however it was interesting looking inside the stills.

Took the most expensive tour and it was worth every penny. Very informative and interesting with plenty of opportunities to sample. The whisky is superb and I'd recommend lots of samples as well as a purchase from their lovely shop

We visited the Distillery and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We went on a tour with Duncan as our guide, he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He answered all of our questions and didn't rush us through. The tasting was good as well and you an purchase little bottles to take what you don't drink away with you.... More
