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.

  • I read some of the negative reviews. Most had one thing in common - children. If they don`t allow children, you should accept that. Anyway, we had a lovely visit. Our guide was an Australian, she was ...  more »
  • This is smallest distillery in Scotland (discounting the recent surge in micro distilleries) and is probably the prettiest one with its whitewashed walls and rural location, nestled in the hills just ...  more »

  • This distillery is a well hidden gem of the Highlands: it is picturesque. We spent time on the tour with Malcolm, the tour guide, who was very knowledgeable about everything there. The tour was not structured the same way that most distilleries do it, so was a welcome change after having gone on multiple distillery tours in the past - (in case you are to visit I shall not ruin your trip with details!) The bar is well stocked with the many different kinds of whisky that they create, as is the shop. And the shop includes a large selection of independently bottled malts, as the owner of the distillery also owns an independent bottlers. The owner of the distillery and their family also work in the shop, so you can meet them. This is a wonderful touch in the modern age of industrialised whisky. Well worth a visit.
  • My wife and I spent two weeks in Scotland and went on five distillery tours. The Edradour tour and facilities blew all the other distilleries away. You could tell that our guide, Ian, really loved the distillery and their product. The tasting bar has some of the best prices for a dram anywhere, and of course the whisky is superb.
  • A beautiful, picturesque small distillery in the heart of Scotland. We had the tour guided by Roy: very informative abd very funny and entertaining at the same time. One of the best distillery experiences in Scotland. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful, amazing! Really informative tours by guides with real enthusiasm. Unique place with very nice place to drink. Great value and tea is only 2.50 and you get to keep the excellent commemorative mug. Easily the best and most picturesque distillery I've ever seen.
  • Fantastic whiskey tour experience. Our guide was Ian and he was brilliantly informative. A group of us were visiting for a short time so decided on this tour over the others and so glad we did. Not only is the location lovely, it was great to see the steps. I would very highly recommend doing this tour - especially only at £7.50!
