Visited on a Good Friday afternoon, which proved to be a busy time, as all together the group grew to more than 20 people. But even with that size, the best thing about the tour was that it wasn't rushed. We all had the time to look around, take photos, ask questions, poke our noses here and there. That is appreciated. The tour guide was pleasant and informative. The distillery alone is small but you can see a lot of detail of the process and steps along the way. What really stood out from other distilleries in this region was that we got to see half-products of distillation, like the greenish foreshots, ad the fact that they let you walk through one of their warehouses. That was awesome!
Additionally, there is a really nice bar. You could actually just go there to the bar itself. Amazing couches by the fireplace. Full range of their whisky, including travel editions to try. The shop itself is simple, no special discounts given, but you can get the Auchentoshan Cream Liqueur there, which you can't really find anywhere else. It's pricey, but unique.
And the whole distillery is accessible for people with mobility problems - I hobbled on crutches and was fine, they patiently waited for me at each step. A few stairs to go up at the start, but I think they have an alternative entrance for wheelchairs too.
Highly recommended! Much much much better than Glenkinchie and just one star better than Glengoyne visits.
