  • I took the family (all adults) to this distillery for a late-afternoon tour. Even if you've been on a tour previously, I really recommend you take this one. The guides are very knowledgeable and engag...  read more »
  • Great Distillery tour, one of the best. Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable about all aspects of this distillery and its processes. He was also very thoughtful in ensuring everyone on the tour ...  read more »
  • great day out (well, half a day). The guide was really good, but it's a pity it is not allowed to take any pictures in the distillery. 
  • Brilliant tour! The guide was very friendly and informative. Learned loads and got a bit tipsy at the whisky tasting;) shuttle bus from Edinburgh was really convenient..
  • Closest Distillery to Edinburgh. One of the most informative and well explained tours you will find. Janette had a great knowledge of the process and the history of whisky making in Scotland. Highly recommend taking the Tour of Scotland for $12 Euros.
  • Liz was a lovely tour guide, explained the process well, the distillary was very educational and the tasting in the end could really be appreciated. Definitely recommend for first distillary tour.
  • My husband and I enjoyed a lovely visit to Glenkinchie today (it was a treat organised by our Son and his Partner as part of my husbands 70th Birthday Gift) we had a lovely time and we were so well treated by our Guide, Karen, she was lovely and explained everything to us in great detail, we were very impressed !!! Unfortunately my husband couldn't sample some whisky as he was driving but he did appreciate the samples he was given which I am sure he will enjoy soon. I am not a whisky drinker but I did sample one of them and I can honestly say I was very impressed, it was lovely, I will be recommending a visit to some other family members,
  • Really good tour, it's a proper working modern distillery. We paid a bit more to try 4 different whiskies at the end. I loved the smells as you walk around. The shuttle bus made it very easy to get there from Princes Street.
