I was here Nov 11, 2016, which was the last day of the long season. I arrived at 3:45 pm for the 4:00 pm tour. I was told "Sorry, we won't be having a 4:00 pm tour." Its was not easy getting to the distillery, which only added to my disappointment. I did sample two drams in the bar, which... More

Chivas is my favorite scotch and I was so thrilled to take the short day trip to their home in Keith! If you're not keen on driving on the 'opposite' side, there is a train station .6 miles from the distillery. Take a tour! Hear the history, it is considered the oldest in the main highlands! The malting process is... More

An excellent tour around a very productive distillery, with Susan delivering a fantastic account of how the isla stream water is turned into a beautiful whiskey. Completed with a taster of 4 of the well known tipples. Excellent value for money (£7.50pp) highly recommended to all

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 :-)
