  • After many tours and visits to various distilleries we looked at the distillery, half an hour away on arrival in Aberdeen, airport. Without a tour, we could perform a Handfilled filling. The two available whiskies were free! cost will be. Both bottling were excellent and we asked for one of the fillings. The very nice and competent staff member led us in the ware house and we could fill the bottle from the original barrel by means of the copper rod. To my knowledge this is nirgens otherwise possible in the original procedure. For very experienced whisky travelers a great experience!

  • Ive always been into whisky but never been to a distillery. Glen Garioch doesnt disappoint. We did the "wee tasting tour" which at £15 a head was really good value for money. Its a small distillery so...  more »
  • Professional and attentive guide. A tour through the entire distillery and tasting of 2 whiskey (£ 150) worth every penny. The ability to act. Took the bus from Aberdeen bus station.

  • A distillery steeped in History, guides are knowledgeable and seem to enjoy their work. A traditional tour as opposed to a gimmicky audio visual experience. A fair bit of walking as the Distillery is split among two main buildings across the road from each other.
  • Closest distillery to Aberdeen. We went during the off season (winter) and the distillery was shut down. However, they do "winter warmers" which consists of a video, modified tour, barrel tasting, etc. really nice.
  • A great whisky tour. The guide was lovely and the tour was natural and chatty. One of the best distillery tours I've been on.
  • What a beautiful location and amazing experience. We opted for the 'Wee Tasting Tour', and were blown away by the warmth and knowledge of our guide and indeed everyone we met! We then went on to bottle our own whisky in the warehouse - an incredible, authentic, hands-on activity bathed in the aroma of the 'Angels' share' with a gorgeous whisky to take away at the end of it. There is a sense of history all around, and the care and affection of the staff for their distillery is inspiring. And then there's the whisky - but that speaks for itself.
  • Loved the tour! The staff told us lots of details about the history of the distillery and little tips about the whisky bottling. She gave us more than generous drams for our tasting and she introduced us to the amazing auchtentoshan whisky cream which is a must! Highly recommended! I must say, I will keep on buying it! Please send it to America!
