  • While staying at Fort William my wife and I walked up to the Distillery and were greeted by John our guide who was polite and enthusiastic regarding the tour. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to...  more »
  • Go there only if you really want to taste their production without frills but technical visit opportunity to mix the types of towers and share the tastings (£5 for 1 time of visit and a unique tasting), £18 for 4 different tastings . It is far from visits extremely polished on the home plan and the framework of the distilleries such as Macallan, Strathisla and Dalwhinnie, for example. The place and the buildings have no charm.

  • We arrived unfortunately on the eve a little late so that it was not enough us for the last tour, were allowed to come anyway just some information received and likely as the next day morning again if we want to. What we were doing. We were then only two and got a great tour. Very informative and with full pride and much knowledge, the leader thrilled us. The tasting and the nice small talk is still remembered us.

  • Worth a visit if passing. Just finished a tour of this distillery. Very informative and interesting. Nice to be able to try the whiskies also. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Thank you.
  • I'd review the whisky quality and the distillery more of a 2-star. Whisky is cheap and bland, and the distillery feels incredibly dated. The redeeming factor was their younger tour guide who was very informative and nice. At the time they were not producing any whisky so fortunately we've been to tours, otherwise it'd be a bummer to not actually see the production happening. You can safely pass on this distillery.
  • Selection of excellent Malts and Blends. Rich in colour and intensity, but smooth on the palate. Small restaurant beside shop. Tour well worth while . A Must visit if in the area.
  • Excellent variety of very good whisky. Malts and Blends. Rich in colour and flavour, stimulating on the palate. A Must if in the area. Also a good restaurant.
  • Great way to kill some time on a rainy day! Informative and fun, great little gift shop too!
