I have visited many distilleries and all basically have the same "how to make" content but what stands this tour apart is the very funny and entertaining tour guide, Jim. This tour also gave a sample of 8 year old whisky directly from the barrel,...More

We were a group of five adults and four kids (kids aged 8-13). Clearly, not all whiskey drinkers😉. Regardless, we all had fun and learned a lot on this tour. I recommend it highly.

Whole family tour of the distillery - mostly aimed at my grandfather and myself as we are whisky lovers. But the wit and energy of Jim the guide infected us, and by the end we were whisky enthusiasts one and all!

Be careful when paying by credit card at the shop they have double charged my card even when I claim that they have double charged. They just say no and after I have checked that a double transaction have happened. Be careful. Pay by cash.
