Edradour Distillery, Pitlochry

Edradour Distillery is reputed to be the smallest distillery in Scotland. If its stills were any tinier, they would be deemed portable and possibly illegal. The Edradour ten year is chill-filtered, a process that produces a cleaner whiskey that doesn't become cloudy when ice is added to the glass. Just two or three people traditionally produce the smooth malts. One of these experts will give you a tour of the distillery for a small fee, which includes two drams and a nosing glass.

  • This is a wonderfully informative tour. Because of the size of the distillery it feels very personal and you get a sense of ghee proud the staff are of what they do.  more »

  • Lovely place, lovely people running it and some lovely produce! At £10 it was fantastic value - with some tasters and a nice present included. The tour was just right - didn't drag and never got borin...  more »

  • Just had a great tadting and wonderful tour through this small but unique distillery. If I weren't hiking through Scotland right now, I would absolutely buy some bottles in their store! A thank you to the tour guide!
  • Very nice, little distillery where you really see the staff doing their job, and you get hands-on on many details of the process that you usually do not see. Guides are very proud (up to the point where it is ridiculous), but that makes the whole experience even more worth it. The shop and the bar are also very nice places offering a lot of selection. If you only want to visit one distillery, consider this one. Only drawback was that we couldn't take all kids with us on the tour as they need to be at least twelve years old, no exceptions - even not to use the bathroom.
  • We chose to do a tour of the Edradour Distillery when we were in Pitlochry and we’re so glad we did it! At first, I thought £10 for a guided tour was a bit steep but I definitely think it’s well worth your money. You get to taste a little bit of whisky and you get to keep a whisky cup as a souvenir. The tour was so informative and our tour guide was so patient with our questions. I don’t like whisky and don’t drink it but the tour was thoroughly entertaining and interesting. Edradour maintains many traditional ways of making whisky and I think this is very special and rare. If you have time and you’re in the area, I definitely recommend participating in a guided tour!
  • Very picturesque. Guide was very informative. The whisky here tastes divine as well.
  • Excellent service both at the distillery and mail order. The tour was interesting and informative, with samples included in the cost of admission. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I have ordered products on their website subsequently and the order was processed promptly and well packaged. Great to support a small independent company.
