  • The distillery made sure that my knowledgeable kids with their whisky expert father was well looked after throughout. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. 
  • Interesting and informative tour with a very friendly guide:Alison. The reception area is very welcoming and the video is actually very informative too. 
  • Great tour/tasting by our host. The smaller distilleries seem more interested in their visitors. Great whiskies, generous pours and friendly hosts. Well done Julie. Loving the 1990. Slainte Mhath.

  • Got there, place was supposedly open, no staff anywhere to be found, rang bell, called out, waited 10 with another customer then left. Pointless visit
  • What a personnel touch they do with their tours, and the whiskey they cask is superb. They Truely are a top notch small distillery.
  • Traditional distillery which allows you good access. It's also where "The Angels Share" was filmed.
  • Great staff, comprehensive tour, and exceptional tasting !
  • Nice
