this is definitely worth a visit. We thought that we knew our whiskies and decided to visit distillery to try them out. The experience was great, but most of all the different selection of whiskies in the shop was great. The Chivas group certainly has a wide varieties to choose from, from great blends to fruity malts. great place to... More

Visiting from France, we were impressed by this small and picturesque distillery. It was everything we hoped it would be, and at a fair price! The guide's explanations and commentaries were really interesting and understandable. Nothing is as standardised as in another distillery we've visited, since Aberlour is rather small. We were a small group of approx. 12 visitors and... More

Group of friends went to a handful of distilleries in 3 days. We were almost unanimous on Aberlour being the best. Its a small distillery but because of that we felt the tour was personal and not rushed. We got a big tasting in a beautiful tasting room. Donna was excellent as our tour guide (koma svo!). When flying home... More

Great tour at Aberlour. The guide was really interesting. We had some people on our tour that asked a lot of questions but our guide was able to answer all of them. You get a great selection to taste at the end of the tour in lovely surroundings. Really good value for £14

Although there were no tours, we had an impromptu tasting organized by the host. And tasted whisky only released at the distillery. With the plethora of whiskies, Aberlour stands out with its soft Flavours. We left very happy

Tour ticks all the boxes you would want from a distillery tour. It keeps to the basics while also having the guides with the knowledge to go in-depth if so desired. Tour's are kept to a few per day which means the tours will generally always be busy but this stops it feeling like a processing factory. This also means... More

This little distillery is so pretty! I loved the castle like visitor center nestled in a little creek valley behind a stone wall the scenery was awesome. a great detailed tour describing the whole malting, distilling and aging process with their somewhat unique use of multiple barrels / casks to impart their great flavors. this was a nice tour in...

Aberlour is a beautiful distillery, with a wicked bottle your own whisky from a sherry cask at full cask strength. Absolutely beautiful!
