“A Great Experience”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

I think this is a "must-see" Edinburgh attraction! I went with my (24 year old) daughter and we both thoroughly enjoyed it - even though we are not whiskey drinkers! From the barrel ride at the beginning to the "surprise gift" at the end - the whole multi-sensory experience was great. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and amusing. Allow 1 - 2 hours for your visit - especially if you would loke coffee - or something stronger too!

“Not bad.”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Not the best, but not the worst tour we have taken, probably a bit expensive, but when in Rome etc. The restaurant was good, lovely food.

“Informative and interesting”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

An interesting trip through the story of whisky making with a little talk about the different areas scottish whisky comes from with the aid of a scratch and sniff card!
The collection of whisky on show is the largest in the world and there are some really interesting bottle shapes and a taster is included for those that like it!

“= A drunk husband.”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

A very enjoyable trip learning the process and history of whiskey making. Ending with a few (to many) samples. And to see the collection was an eye opener.
