Talisker Distillery is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport in the village of Carbost. Come and visit us for a tour of the Distillery, see our 5 copper pot stills and the traditional worm tubs that make our Talisker so unique, then take a look at the casks in the warehouse where the Angel’s Share is lost to evaporation during maturation. Have a taste of our award winning Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky in our Visitor Centre.

Excellent tour - a must do if you're on Skye! It can get busy, so either book ahead - or book a time while you're there and grab a meal or pint at the Old Inn across the street (if you tell the kitchen your...More

Our Tour Guide (kate) did an excellent job. Was easy to understand, patiently answered questions and made sure everyone could hear her. She gave everyone the time to look, smell and taste the distillery process. Speak to your accommodation about a club card which means...More

The tour was excellent, very informative. As someone who has been on distillery tours before, the guide had a fantastic knowledge and rapport with the tour group. The tasting at the end was good, and when we were undecided as to which bottle to buy,...More

I have been on a few distillery tours, so base my thoughts in comparison. We visited the distillery in mid July the busy period on Skye for visitors. The tour of the distillery is best pre-booked in this busy period. The cost of the tour...More

What's not to like. Great tour through a working distillery in a gorgeous location. Great for a wet weather day with a dram at the end. The shop will also let you taste whisky before you buy.

Visited this distillery and having been to another one a few years ago this was ok a bit rushed and hard to understand you had to listen carefully, wished we could have seen the bottling but was ok

We've been on a whiskey tour at another distillery before, however, this tour was far more detailed and informative. The only negative comment I have is that we were told by our tour guide that the "Distillers Edition" bottles are only sold at the distillery,...More

The guide seemed rushed. Little by way of history and who knew the tasters work out of Fife. As such little to see and no access to the store houses. Waste of time and for the price you could DIY in 8 minutes

Three friends and I enjoyed the Talisker Tasting Tour (£40 per person), and it was a fab experience. We were taken for a tour of the distillery, then to a tasting room to sample 5 whiskeys including the distiller's edition, others ranging from 10 to...More

We drove by car to the Distillery from Portree. Buy a map to follow, as you might find yourself thinking that you have missed the turn off or have gone too far (or perhaps that's a Aussie thing, given that when we get in... More
