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

Recently enjoyed an enjoyable distillery tour with Duncan, accompanied by a young intern. Lots of relevant information delivered in a friendly informal manner.

This distillery is much different from the others we have been to. The tour is the same, but the tasting includes whisky made from wheat rather than barley and blends rather than single malts! But it is a nice tasting room and lounge!

Worst tourist attraction in Scotland. A disgrace to our nation and heritage. Visited today with friends. Wanted to sample some of the whiskey. Barman was clearly drunk told us to wait while he served an elderly German couple. After 10 minutes and 3 shots each for them still waiting. Left in disgust. If you want friendly go elsewhere. And if... More

Knowing nothing about scotch whisky or distilleries I found the tour really interesting and insightful and feel I know a bit more about what to look for in a whisky. Our guide was really knowledgeable and we got to try 4 different whiskies at the end. A really interesting afternoon and great value under a tenner.

We have been on quite a few of these tours, and this rates as one of the best. Our guide Duncan was really enthusiastic, friendly & informative. He engaged well with all of the group. Beautiful setting and lovely relaxing lounges to enjoy the sampling. Should mention the Strathisla 12 year old which was a treat. Shop had plenty of... More
