    Dropped by late afternoon mid way through a day walking to get some rest and have a bite to eat. Good points - very comfortable bar area and seating; made to feel welcome (even though we were a bit dishevelled, and not really there for the array of whiskies on offer); staff helpful, polite and attentive. Coffee (and accompanying biscuits) were lovely. Could have been improved by even having some cake (pre-packed if needs be) - we had been mistaken by reading reviews on Tripadvisor of the great cafe, not realising this was from a decade ago and since the Visitor Centre refurbishment, the cafe was no loner a thing. It wasn't clear on the website that this was the case, either.

    Booked a Distillery tour for me and my partner with 7 tastings which was amazing. Firstly it was very easy to book via email. Lauren the person who organised it was very helpful and friendly. Once we arrived onsite we headed into the shop where we took our temperatures for covid and we greeted in a very friendly manner. We were the only people on the tour so it was like our own private tour and tasting.

    Our tour guide Natasha was very knowledgeable and friendly, and answered all our questions very well while we were on the tour. The tasting was great and it was lovely to be able to taste all the whisky's they had, next to one another, my partner was driving so he even got to take the whisky away in little bottles to try when we got home. Definitely worth a visit!

    As a small group of Whisky lovers getting back to Scotland after COVID has been difficult, as a number of Distilleries have yet to determine whether Distillery Visits are still to be offered. By doing some research we came across this relatively young Distillery which was a start up from scratch utilising a series of buildings previously operating as a cow barn.

    The beauty of this Distillery is that it has been set up totally based on 100% traditional methods and processes for the production of whisky. It is on such a small scale that it is very easy to absorb the story behind the enterprise and the absolute passion of the person chiefly driving the whole project with the support of the MacPherson Grant family who own the facility which forms part of the Ballindalloch Estate.

    The Distillery Manager, Mr Colin Poppy is a most knowledgeable and dedicated individual. His passion for what he is striving to achieve makes the whole experience very special.

    We undertook the Extended Tour which lasts between 2 - 2.5 hours and includes a private tasting of 5 single malts, 2 relating to upcoming yet to be launched age statement single malts (scheduled for late next year) plus 3 Cragganmore sigle malts from the family's own whisky collection.

    This is a must-do experience if you are serious about your love of single malt, and learning about the true method of production that stays close to its traditions.
