  • Well worth a tour. very friendly & very informative. Good taster sessions & a few nice gifts on sale too. Follow it up with a walk on one of the fine beaches in Uig. Plenty of parking. Look out for th...  more »
  • We were keen to visit this distillery as we have been to most of the distilleries in Scotland now. I looked at the website and copied the postcode that it advised people to put into their satnav. We s...  more »

  • While the setting and tasting were nice, the rest of the tour we did was terrible. Almost no real information apart from what you can read in a travel guide and very short. Definitely not worth the 5 pounds. The staff was very friendly and helpful + the whiskey is good, though.
  • The reason I like this place, besides that it makes Whisky (not whiskey 😜) is that when you visit you will see the rough and ready of making the water of life. No snazzy visitors centre, although it is very comfortable. You will walk through puddles between buildings and if you are in a big group you will feel crammed in the barrel store. This adds to the charm. This is best visited as a personal experience as the guide will talk to YOU, although I would imagine a larger group will benefit just as well. Amazing place, amazing setting!!! And a couple of drams at the end 👍🥃
  • Very authentic distillery tour. Looking forward to the 10 year old!
  • This distillery is a must see! Rough diamond of a place...as original as it gets!! Whiskey is a tad coarse...looking forward to trying the 10 yr old!
  • Awesome - best distillery tour I have ever had; Laura was very informative and the tasting was awesome - thank you. Glad we made the effort to visit you from the Orkneys! It was a pleasure to meet Marko whose brilliance to identify the business opportunity and determination to make it happen are inspiring. You deserve the admiration and support of the islanders
