  • Well worth taking this free tour. Our guide on 10 February 18 was Jill. She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour and certainly knew her stuff. Even though the distillery was in silen...  more »

  • Did you know that whiskey gained its colour from the barrel it is stored in? Well, I do now. This tour is really interesting and worth £7.50. That includes tasting their single malt which is lovely and a money off voucher for a 70cl bottle of whiskey.
  • Great tour with the bubbly Karen of the very pretty Blair Athol distillery. Not usually a fan of Highland Whiskey (I prefer a Peaty number) but the Blair Athol Single Malt is fiery and tasty. Delicious! Purchased a bottle of that and a special edition Lagavulin- the £5 off vouchers given when paying for the tour were much appreciated! If you aren't sure which distillery to visit I would highly recommend this one :)
  • Great place to visit if you are in the area with tour prices at £7.50 which provides you with a guided tour and a £3.00 off voucher in their shop. You get up close to all of the equipment but there are no cameras or mobile phones permitted which is why I could only take one picture. The guide Jill was very informative and a great laugh and answered all of our questions.
  • Our guide Diana was very well informed and made for a pleasant round through the complete production process. After the tasting we had a nice chat about some whiskey details and about the way to taste and compare.
  • Myself and my brother in law visited this distillery for a tour on Saturday 7th October 2017 and would highly recommend it, we paid £35 for a personal tour and a taste of half a dozen whiskys each as well as one straight from the cask, Derek our host and tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and very informative, I've been on a few tours but I learned more about the different whiskys and the way that there distilled on this one than any other and that was down to Derek and his passion for the Blair Atholl distillery, top man and would definitely recommend this.
