Be our the smell of the place or the history behind it, it is a definite must for whisky lovers.

By the way, get the 12 year old distillery reserve.... It's one of the best I've ever had

Considering its expansive reach, the distillery has a small feeling, and you go from building to building, up and downstairs to check out different parts of the entire whiskey making process. The last tour was at 4:00pm, which we made just in time. The tour lasts about 30 min and you get a free whiskey at the end, followed by the obligatory gift shop. At this time they are selling a 12 year old bottle that is only sold on site, and can be personalized. Free wi-fi throughout and friendly people. Entry fee was 7 pounds I believe.

A very interesting tour including sample at the end. More use of a microphone in production areas would have been appreciated. The cafe is excellent and surprisingly good value. There was a very strict atmosphere which in my opinion made it hard to relax. Unlike at a Scottish distillery I have visited, no pictures were allowed anywhere on site.

Again this showcases the high standards of customer service in Northern Ireland. Great tour guide who was well informed and able to answer any question. It was really interesting to see the who whiskey making process and to be able to understand what was being done and why. Thank you. When the person with me was unable to finish the tour a lovely gentleman accompanied her to the bar and furnished her with a tipple.

Not sure why this was included in the Allen's Tours Causeway day trip - just an overpriced gift shop, with not even a free sample on offer, and certainly no tour of the distillery! Maybe the tour companies get commission from the brewery for dumping tourists here for 30 minutes, otherwise I can't see the point.
