All distilleries work in the same way BUT all are very different. Strathisla is a little gem. The distillery is small interesting and a great little tour. 4 tastes at the end for £7.50 is great value too. Guide was excellent the end result fantastic. As normal you will also meet interesting visitors with similar passions. Great setting and a... More

Went to this beautiful distillery on an atrocious day weather wise, maybe this is why we had the tour to ourselves. I wondered whether they would still go ahead with just 2 people, but not only did we get the tour, but it felt very personal. The tour guide Duncan was excellent with a warm, enthusiastic and friendly manner that... More

We did not take a guided tour at this destilleri. We were focusing on buying some of their whiskey in the visitors center and shop. Something we regret today when we've seen others. This is one of the oldest and a lot of history and most of all soul! Don't miss to get its story! Wonderful buildings and garden besides... More

Distillery tours are two a penny in Scotland but Strathisla is exceptional. The place itself is stunning - picturesque outside, elegant and classy inside. There are beautiful rooms off the information/shop area, all wood, leather and even a fire. This is the home of Chivas and they know how to make a statement. We took the tour, which was informative... More

This was my 4th visit to Strathisla. I'll never get tired to watch this beautiful building. That it produces good whisky only increeses the experience. Strathisla holds one of the oldest licenses in Scotland. Take your time to enjoy the tasting here, it's great. This time we found the destillers edition in the shop so good a bargin that we... More

Visited Strathisla as one of three distillery tours in Scotland. This tour was probably the most rustic visit, you could really feel that it was an old manufacturing. The tasting was unfortunately not as well planned and felt rushed, the whisky tasted good though :-)

First of: The destillery looks like straight out of a fairytale. It really is georgeous. Also the the inner rooms are designed very classy with leather sofas, armchairs and a fireplace. It really looks great. Our guide was very nice, she tried to help everyone unsterstand what she was explaining and really gave an informational tour. We also got a... More

We couldn't visit the highlands without calling in at a distillery and so I picked this one out from a search on Google as it is the oldest working distillery in the Highlands and claimed to be the most picturesque. Turned out to be a good choice, it was indeed an attractive distillery with lovely gardens and it had the... More

I grew up with my father drinking Chivas Regal. I was so excited to finally get to tour his favorite distillery. We had a small group and had a wonderful experience. I especially loved the very comfortable tasting room, unlike any other we have visited, like sitting down in your fathers private lounge added it added to the overall excellent... More

Had a connoisseur visit and was very impressed with the production and even more impressed with the Royal Salute end result. Staff were very knowledgable and friendly. Can say this was the best tour from the 5 or so that I have had to date.

Thank 105davidd105
