If you're at all interested in whisky, do make a visit and see how casks are built up, repaired and tested using traditional methods in a real working environment. These guys work HARD.

Interesting tour with short video and chance to see the Coopers at work. You can spend as much time as you like watching the Coopers from the viewing gallery above. Seeing the casks being refurbished at the Cooperage is a great part of a visit...More

This is very much the largest working Cooperage in the UK and one of the biggest worldwide - making and refurbishing Bourbon and Sherry barrels and butts for pretty well the whole Scotch Whisky Industry. It's a fascinating tour for people of all ages.
