  • We had booked at 10: 00 a guided tour, unfortunately somewhat later arrived. But no problem - we had a private tour had only two with our guide. The lady was super friendly, very knowledgeable and so we had a very entertaining and interesting tour. Also the subsequent tasting was great. There were 3 different varieties to try. 12-15-18 years. I'm not a huge whiskey fan, have to say but that this actually tasted me and I could taste really taste differences out. The whole facility is very clean, there is ample parking and like I said - I can only praise the staff!

  • Distillery from small dimensions, has a dozen employees ... For this it is worth visiting this Distillery, because the malt production process is followed with attention and meticulousness, characteristic that today rarely meets ... Karen, the local guide, is very helpful and knowledgeable. At the end of your visit you can make some tastings (with various range of prices). Note the driver receives bottles with samples to taste to return!! Shop well stocked!!

  • during a stay in Scotland for the discovery of part of the higlands we we arretames to the distillery, glendronach closed for maintenance just before Christmas, but looking at the places we see happen a man who asked us what we were doing and where we came from, after having him explain our trip it is fetching a key, actually it was the owner that we opened and didn't even not that we would buy, it was just for the pleasure we receive despite this Annual closing. It all opened, down the table chairs, etc... and after tasting we took the last 2 bottles of the glendronach 15 years old he has left before new bottling scheduled for sale in 2019, excellent whisky after a home we'll never see in France and we will not forget It was 3 years ago and our haste is to return if all goes well next year where there should again be a manufacture of 15 years of age. If you go to Scotland, feel especially not to you stop in this distillery. Thanks again Mr. cdt Mason

  • A few of us went on the distillery tour, our guide Karen was fantastic, very knowledgeable, not just about GlenDronach but whisky in general I would recommend the tour here above those of the bigger distilleries.
  • The Dutch SMWCL whisky club had a very nice tour with host Karen. Beautiful authentic distillery.
  • This was a beautiful destillery, the guide was very friendly. The tour was fantastic and informative, with a little whisky tasting at the end.
  • Great tour. Don't miss the chance to hand fill your own bottle at the end.
  • It's a beautiful place and the staff was nice. I was a little disappointed that it's not possible to get a sip for tasting even after I purchased 2 bottles for 260£.
