We've already visited three other distilleries before we came to Glenfarclas, so we had some idea what to expect of a distillery tour. However, ours was a special tour, mostly because we came as guests of Ian McWilliam's, the Marketing Executive of Glenfarclas. We came...More

I was really impressed by suzanne’s knowledge of the distillery, the processes and the end product. Spent well over an hour explaining it all to us before rounding it off with a couple of drams (with miniatures for the drivers). I’d really recommend this tour....More

Great tour! Our guide was Murray, a knowledgeable and long time staff member. Gave us details unique to Glenfarclas that I’ve never heard before about a Distillery. The Connoisseur Tour is what we took, at £40/person. Worth every bit of it with the tasting afterwards!...More

Popped in as one of my favourite whiskys. Staff very attentive, asked what I liked and arranged a tasting to suit. No hard sell but lots of help and support in making decisions. Would return again and again!

I don't believe that it's a standard tour. This being said everything is possible if you contact the distillery in advance and make arrangements with them.
