“An amazing tasting!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We are quite new to the joys and mysteries of good whisky and, as such, welcome tutored sessions to help explain the subtleties ad intricacies of the different malts. Heather provided just such a session - she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in taking us through four malts. She was patient and encouraging in getting us to describe the subtle nuances of smell and taste. We came away from the tasting slightly inebriated but having a much clearer vision of the taste and differences of a range of excellent malt whiskies. If you find yourself on Islay hen this s a "must visit".

“Best distillery tour on Islay”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This was by far the best tour we undertook. The young lady was friendly and very knowledgeable. Although this was the last of 9 tours we had done in a fortnight, and we knew the whisky making process inside out by then, the interactive way in which this tour was done made it different from the others. The tasting area is lovely, with panoramic views out over Loch Indaal. The choice of whisky was immense, and it was so difficult to choose one. We went for a 16 year old sherry casked in the end which you bottled yourself. Delicious.

“Heaven in a glass!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

What a great tour and tasting. We went during the quiet time and ther wasn't any dis tilling going on, but the video (and accompanying dram) was a good start to the tour of the facilities. Don't forget to stop by the tasting bar and sample a few drams. They will pour you a dram from all of their offerings. No driving afterwards!

“A freindly hello”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Even though our visit occurred when the distillery was closed for the annual cleaning, the staff was most helpful and went out of their way to be informative and even offered a wee dram of the product!
