I thought the tour was good and informative. It was cool that they were making whisky at the time of the tour. It would have been nice to be able to take photos during the tour but I understand the safety concerns. I would recommend this tour to all who are interested in seeing how Whiskey is made.

Excellent tour, good guide and is something different. A bit pricey but you do get to keep the souvenir glass. Be wary of buying a bottle of whiskey as we did and later found it to be £12 cheaper in the supermarket.

I've done zillions of brewery/winery/distillery tours all over the world, and this tour gets high marks for being informative and for taking whisky tasting seriously. Our guide, Lucy, was quite knowledgeable and friendly.... More

Okay, so we signed up for the higher priced platinum tour which included a guide who answered any questions we might have about different Scotch whiskys from various regions. As a wine drinker, I knew very little about how to enjoy Scotch before this tour and discovered Speysides are my cup of tea. The disappointment comes in because we had... More
