  • Excellent Craftman's tour by Heather! I had Aberlour listed as The top tour in The industrie untill now, but this Craftman's tour surpasses it by many lengths! Excellent tour and it wil stay in our memories for long to come... Thanks again to Heather who gave us a unique malt experience :-) (Iwan and Stephanie from Belgium)
  • Loved it ever since I visited the first time in 1993... visited again this year in September, and so little has changed, which adds so much to the charm! I've even learnt to drink the Whiskey properly now (being a red wine drinker) 😀 Congratulations Islay... Bowmore is something to be so proud of!
  • A rare piece of Islay heritage with the most friendliest of atmosphere and a view that one would quite happily walk 5000 miles just to see. The wee drams are an added bonus. The highlight of my 28 day holiday. There is a nice you g lady there called Lynn, she will give you the most welcoming hospitality you could ever dream of.
  • Before making our way to the afternoon ferry back to the mainland, my friends and I stopped by the bar in the tasting room upstairs. We didn't have time to do a proper tour of the distillery, but a visit to the bar made us loyal fans of Bowmore. We tasted several of the whiskies that are not readily available in the US market. Lauren, who was helping us, was so friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend a stop by the visitor center.
  • Beautiful distillery with friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable staff. Plus the whisky's delicious, too! I recommend visiting on a Sunday, when you get the after church crowd.
