Very knowledgeable tour, guides knew their spirits!! Blossoming business that I hope doesn’t lose its engagement with the public and continues to make some interesting tastes to sample. Drivers can take theirs home. Thoroughly recommend.

You wouldn’t be able to have your dog out of the car most likely as you couldn’t bring it near to the distillery and the car park although an open space, has no run around area and isn’t the biggest
