The Guided Tasting Tour (2hrs) was amazing and Nick our guide was professional, polite, friendly and knowledgable. Great tour even for those who are not whiskey drinkers as full of history and interesting facts. The facilities were refurbed in 2020 and are fabulous including the shop, and cafe. We opted to buy a bottle we filled ourselves and the option to have it engraved (in front of you ) is a cracking idea. Definitely recommend a visit here

Very enjoyable tour. Our guide Helen was brilliant, kept it light but lots of knowledge. Have done quite a few distillery tours, have to say this was one of the best.

A very informative tour of the distillery. Our guide, John, certainly knows his stuff and he was able to impart his knowledge in a relaxing way.

I have been on a number of distillery tours and this one ranks among the very best.

The interactive session at the beginning was excellent.

A good range of merchandise in the shop.

All the staff were welcoming and extremely helpful.
