Edradour Distillery, Pitlochry

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Distillery
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. Edradour Distillery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Pitlochry Edition.

  • Great little distillery to visit. Got to see the process of making scotch the old fashion way up close. The Guide was very nice, as well as the lovely redheaded lady in answering all my questions on what to perhaps buy. The only things to improve is 1) To eliminate the 8 min video at beginning of the tour where it's basically the owner tooting his own horn on how great he is, and more importantly 2) To allow to have access to the whisky bar to taste without having to buy a ticket to the tour. If I ever go back I don't want to take the tour again to try some of the whisky before buying.
  • I should dislike because the charm is that it is the smallest distillery in Scotland, but this is just too great to not share. John gave us a tour, and what a great storyteller he is. I loved how he made me feel the mist covered whisky passion, the true craftsmanship what it is all about as far as I'm concerned. Great tasting bar, nice shop, many wonderful whiskies to taste!
  • Our family of 5 hiked from our hotel tot his distillery and had a wonderful tour and small tasting. Our guide was so nice--dressed in a kilt, looking every bit the Scot! He was very nice to our boys (have to be 12yo for the tour). We bought 3 bottles after and the owner was in the shop. We asked him to sign our bottles and he gladly did--cool! The facilities are so clean and the grounds beautiful. I highly recommend a visit.
  • It was a GREAT tour and the guide was fantastic. They took you through the whole process of making a single malt whiskey. There was a great session at the beginning to learn how handle a fine whiskey and what to do to adjust it to your taste.
  • This was outstanding! Very nice, funny and knowledgeable guides. Far more interesting than the large destilleris where you couldn't really get close to the crafting of the whiskey. If you´re only going to one distillery, pick this one!
