  • The tour was excellent and very interesting. We got to taste the blended whisky, the gin and the vodka at the end of the tour and I can honestly say that they were all superb. The gin is one of the best I've ever tasted. We will definitely be back to try the malt when it's ready. A highly recommended experience.
  • lovely surroundings, interesting tour, excellent food and the gin is first rate.
  • Great tour and good value for money with tasters of whiskey, gin and vodka. Beautiful building and food at the bistro.
  • The Bistro has now become my favourite place for not only a coffee,but also lunch and evening meals. Its where I take visiting friends and family. Dog friendly outside, and staff are really helpful and food imaginative and good quality. The effort they go to to find the right potato for their chips...... Love it! The young man in the shop was particulary helpful when I asked about the 'Quatrefoil' - I had a history lesson- must do the Tour again soon!
  • Fabulous day out. Informative and well-polished tour with a very knowledgeable guide and all the staff were friendly and happy to help. Lunch at the Bistro was excellent. Great value and well worth a return (180 mile) trip! Thoroughly recommended to locals and visitors.
