“Great wee tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Well worth the very modest cost of the tour. Interesting, informative, tasty and entertaining. We stocked up with bottles, mini kegs and some novelty items. Waiting for an excuse to go back!

“Don't drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

What a gem of a brewery. We did the tour with a new employee, found out at the end it was his first tour and he did excellently - answering all the questions that we put to him.

The tour itself is quite short as you see the mash and brewing vessels. The highlight though has to be the tasting afterwards. I think we must have had 7 or 8 samples to try - and these weren't small measures. I would recommend leaving the car behind.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

What a great experience. Have been to the brewery before but never done the tour. We were a group of 8 cyclists and we joined a coach group which must have been a challenge! This was so entertaining and we got to try a selection of cairngorm beers too! We are planning a night in with our purchases and a copy of Highlander on the DVD!!!! If you like real ale then this is the tour for you. Brilliant, thank you.

“Best beer in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Ive been drinking cairngorm brewerys beer for a few years.We was staying in fortwilliam and a pub there had a couple of cairngorm beers on.On the way home we called by brewery to purchase some beer,the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The new brewery shop is very good with a great selection of beers and you can try before you buy.
Next time we go we will have a tour of the brewery.
