A wonderful informative tour and well worth the £10 for and hour's visit with lots of knowledge and experience seeing all round the distillery, learned a lot and even had a dram at the end too to taste.

Great cheerful dark-haired female ex-Londoner guide. Very informative and genuinely engaged and interested in showing guests a good tour. Learned a bit more about whisky. Five out of five (Danish) stars.

Not sure. But if you husband likes Talisker then the tour is well worth it.

Yes...plastic bag charging came into effect in Scotland ahead of the rest of the UK. Why is this being asked about Tallisker Distillery?
