Edradour Distillery, Pitlochry

4.4
#1 of 215 in Things to do in Perth and Kinross
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.

    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 »

  • Having been to Edradour when it was under different ownership, it is now possible to reflect upon the significance of the changes that have occurred. First, the growth in size and complexity is palpable. Expansion of production facilities is well underway to allow wider distribution of spirits. The level of complexity within the range of spirits produced at present is striking. It does not seem possible to taste all the different creations in one tasting experience. Suffice to say, several visits would be required. Perhaps the tasting room could be allowed to sell tastings without a tour. It would make the whisky more accessible, which would be a very good thing. Of course limits could be set to guard against overindulgence.
  • Without a doubt one of the best Distillery tours in Scotland. Angie our guide was not only very knowledgeable shone through, adding an extra level to the tour, that you simply do not get elsewhere. Visiting the barrel store room and being able to literally smell the Angel's share was a great treat.
  • Very nice, little distillery where you really see the staff doing their job, and you get hands-on on many details of the prices 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.
  • If I could give 0 I would, we went specifically to purchase an expensive mature single malt for a close relative who has received a life changing diagnosis. While I was perusing the higher priced bottles I was literally shooed out of the way by the rude tour guide who told me the same whiskeys were on another shelf out of the way of the paying group. However the bottles he directed me to were not the same age or quality I wanted to purchase. I was so annoyed with my experience I went to a different bespoke distillery and made my pricey purchase. Tough luck Edradour!
  • The best and most informative Distillery tour I have ever been on, to see the staff actually manually carrying out the emptying the mash tub and actually see inside the fermentation tubs was amazing not to mention the two drams of free tasters before the tour started Put our Distillery tour on Skye to shame and at only £7.50 was excellent value
