  • 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.
  • Not the most picturesque of distilleries on Islay, tucked away in the middle of the Bowmore village. But has some of the oldest buildings surviving from the 18th century, steeping it in tradition that makes it worth a visit. They hold the distinction of being the only distillery visited by The Queen. If it's good enough for the Queen...!
  • 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.
  • If it's good for the Queen, must be good enough for you! Steeped in tradition, boasts of the oldest buildings amongst the Islay ones. The only Distillery the Queen had visited. Decent tour, good visitor centre and beautiful location.
