    This is about the 20th distillery I visited. Usually give the guides there is a personal touch to. The story is for 95% right, but the how is decisive. This definitely belongs at the top so far. The distillery and the whisky is delicious and look beautiful and authentic.

  • Guided tours, knowledgeable and entertaining people. Great scenic area. If you have the chance, it's worth to stop by.
  • What a great tour for the £7.50 entrance fee! A very informative and interesting guide named Frank gave us a humourous and eloquent talk as he took us around the distillery. He explained everything about the process in great detail with funny little quips here and there. A real joy. At the end you get a free dram of the 12 year blair atholl scotch and also the ticket gives you £5 off many whiskeys in the shop. A great tour on my birthday! Thanks Frank!
  • Great way to pass an hour or so if it's raining outside. Friendly staff, excellent tour guide ( thanks Olivier!), lovely, warming taste of liquid gold at the end 😉
  • Small distillery with a lot of flair and dedicated passionate people.
  • Didn't go through the tour but gives the impression of a factory again. Big visitor centre, pretty massive. Bus loads are dropped off here, I don't know... not my thing
