It was fun to learn how scotch whiskey is made and our guide did his best to make it entertaining. When in Scotland, one MUST tour a distillery and this one was a good choice.

Not sure if you need to book. It was very quiet in early Feb when we went. Tour lasts bout 45 mins and they do them every hour.
