    Great informative tour and excellent whisky tasting to boot.
    I was one of a party of folk from the Aberfeldy Information Centre volunteer team invited to do the tour so as to be better informed about the offer and therefore better able to respond to enquiries. The tour was really good and interesting, with almost too much to take in. The tour staff were really friendly and well skilled. Roy took our tour and did a great job. Ian, who helped set it up in the first place was also really good on the day.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and found the tour interesting. We will pass all your lovely comments on to Roy, Ian and the rest of the team!

    Great experience. Just that bit more than most distilleries.
    Lovely tour of the entire process. Which, of course,isn't much different than in other distilleries except for the nice movie and small museum at the start! Katherine took us on the tour and she's a knowledgeable and energetic tour guide. We will come back when the new museum is done.
    Thank you for your five star review, we're delighted to hear you had a fantastic experience with Katherine and we look forward to welcoming you when you return!

    Excellent informative distillery tour and tasting at Dewar's Aberfeldy
    Cameron gave us a great tour at Dewar's Aberfeldy. He took us through the entire whiskey-making process step-by-step with clear explanations, answered questions and finished with an excellent tasting of two delicious whiskeys. Highly recommended.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a fantastic review! We're so glad you had a wonderful experience with Cameron and enjoyed the whisky tasting at the end of your tour. We hope to welcome you back soon!

    Great distillery tour and museum
    The history in the museum makes this tour different to others. Cameron was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and tastings. The take out cocktails in the bar were a complete hit too!
    Thank you very much for your 5 star review g1g5s9! We are glad you enjoyed your visit and will pass on your lovely comments to Cameron. Fabulous to hear you had a nice whisky cocktail when you got home. Slàinte Mhath!

    Informative and enjoyable
    My girlfriend and I went to the Aberfeldy Distillery to go on the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Experience. The tour begins with a film reel in a comfortable small theatre room, informing you of some of the history of John Dewar and his consequent sons. This is then immediately followed by a museum like experience where you can go around varying displays and delve even deeper in to the history of John Dewar & Sons, observe how they expanded and how they became one of the most popular whisky brands in the world. The only downside to the tour was the Smartify app was not working but that appeared to be on the Smartify end rather than the distilleries. After this you are taken around the distillery, going through key rooms and locations where the processes of Whisky making are explained in excellent detail. Our tour guide, Cameron, was particularly knowledgable but often elected to talk to the tour group and involve us in the explanation. As someone who has visited many distilleries, I enjoyed that it felt like we were working together on this endeavour. We also got the chance to speak to one of the workers in the wash back room and learn more about what they were doing and how they test the soon to be whisky. The tour ended with a tasting and it was curated well, with myself paying the extra to be able to try a single cask version of the whisky as well. We saw the whisky get taken from the cask and poured into our glasses which we got to keep, a great visual accompaniment to the experience. One of my favourite whisky tours that I have been on, in particular thanks to our guide Cameron. We was friendly, knowledgable and answered all the questions that our tour group had for him.
    We're so glad both you and your girlfriend enjoyed your experience with us, thank you for taking the time to leave us such an excellent review! We will pass on your lovely comments to Cameron and the rest of the team. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the distillery.

    Roy- Tour Guide Extraordinaire
    A fantastic tour. Roy was our guide and brought a certain level of hilarity and knowledge and over all made our experience great. We tasted the 12 year old single malt and 12 year old blend. Roy was great at explaining the whole process and answering our questions with grace and expert knowledge. Over all a great afternoon activity. An easy walk to the distillery from our accommodation in Aberdeldy meaning none of our party had to drive.
    Thank you for leaving such a brilliant review for Roy, we're so glad you enjoyed your experience at Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery! We hope you welcome you back again soon.

    Great whiskey tour
    Great whiskey tour! My wife and I went to this distillery to understand the process of whiskey making and it was an awesome experience. Roy was our guide and explained everything perfectly in a fun way! The bar and shop are also very nice and they have many bottles you can choose from. A must go if you are anywhere within the reach!
    Thank you for leaving us a 5-star review, we're so happy to hear you had a wonderful tour with Roy and enjoyed the bar and shop as well. We hope to welcome you back to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery soon!

    Thank you Tim
    This is the first time my mother and father have been to a whiskey distillery and myself and my husband have been to numerous ones around Scotland. My family and I have not enjoyed a whiskey tour as much as we have with your employee Tim. He was informative, polite, knowledgeable and just a fabulous fabulous guide. We did not have the opportunity to thank him before we left. Please pass on our thanks and gratitude. Honestly the best whiskey tour we’ve been on. The Singh family.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave Tim such a wonderful review, we will pass on your feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you found our tour the best you've been on, we hope to welcome you back to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery soon!

    Loved It…
    My wife and I visited on spec therefore keeping an open mind. We weren’t disappointed. We paid to do the tour, our guide (Cameron) was ace and knew his stuff. The museum, history and displays were fascinating and well presented. The generous size samples (£xtra) we had at the end were lovely, especially the single malt, that good in fact we bought that and other items in the shop later. A great couple of hours spent en route elsewhere. Thankyou Cameron.
    We're thrilled that you loved your experience with us and had a wonderful tour with Cameron. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we'll pass your lovely feedback to Cameron and the rest of them. We hope to welcome you back to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery again!

    Fantastic experience
    Came for a tour whilst on a stag do. Nothing but positive words for it. Our tour guide Roy was excellent, very informative and his attention to detail was great. We were not very enthusiastic to begin with due to a few to many drinks the night before, but Roy made the experience very entertaining and we soon woke up 😂 We finished the tour off with the whiskey tasting and it didn't disappoint. Highly recommend!

This tour is in our experience the best here in Scotland. Amazing location, ambience, cleanliness, staff wonderful, just exactly what you want. We went for the connoisseur tour and Roy was our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny and made the tour first class. He also personally advised a whiskey suited to my taste. So, go there, enjoy, you won’t be disappointed.

This was a surprise birthday treat. The pricing was fair and the tasting offered cheese and biscuits to accompany your drams.

We were offered a distillery bespoke tasing of a 1999 cask which was wonderful. They also offered a drivers dram package which meant everyone got to enjoy the day. Wonderful day out.

One point to note.. take a coat as the tour was cold!!

Went on this tour yesterday with 2 friends and my husband, Ross was our tour guide who was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable, engaging, interesting and informative. The tour covered all aspects of the distillery process and concluded with 3 large drams to sample. One of our party was driving so they put the drams in bottles to take home to try later. We ate lunch in the cafe after the tour which was delicious, the only disappointing thing was they had sold all the scones and we were desperate to try them, we should have bought them before our tour! We bought gifts in the shop afterwards which were reasonably priced. I highly recommend this tour, it was an amazing experience.

Cameron was our guide and he was great, the tour was excellent and all of the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
I work for Dewar's at another site and it was great to find out more about the history of the company.
Would highly recommend taking the tour, even for a non whisky drinker, we had 2 people in our group who had never tried whisky before and they both enjoyed the tour and the tasting.

The Distillery Baggers visited Aberfeldy Distillery today and we were given a great tour and tasting by Ian. Humerous, entertaining and informative. His knowledge of the distillery was 1st class and he has a special interest in warehouses. Highly recommended to everyone. Thanks to Ian and the whole team from initial creating to a nice chat at the end. Oh, and the cheese scones are not to be missed.
