Pre booked and although never heard of it, one of the best we have visited. Very knowledable host who gave a short intro video, then a full walk of the distillery. Good samples in the tent as was during time of outdoor only drinking with sample bottles for drivers. Suprisingly preferred the 36 year old over the peated whisky as more an Islay drinker. Very worth it.

Hi Busker999, Thank you for your 5 circle review. Glad you're pleased to have discovered us, we like to think we're one of Scotland's well kept secrets! Also thanks for braving the tasting in the tent, Covid needs must of course but it can get quite chilly here at 1000ft. Good to hear you enjoyed the 36 year old, maybe we've converted you to non-peated whisky? Thanks again, Cheers Ken

Wonderful no-frills working distillery. Feels very genuine, and I found it a much more enjoyable experience than that available in several of the trendy visitor centres that have recently opened. I already know a fair bit about whisky, and can therefore vouch for the fact that Fiona, our tour guide, gave a very comprehensive and intelligible explanation of the whisky-making process. I would absolutely recommend a visit to this beautiful place.

Hi goj56 Thank you for your 5 circle review! Fiona will be pleased that you found her tour so enjoyable. We do pride ourselves on letting you see pretty much everything that goes on at the distillery (Covid restrictions willing of course) and it's always great to hear that's appreciated, especially by someone who already knows a lot about the subject. Thanks too for your recommendation, Cheers Ken

We did the full distillery tour, which was quite simply amazing. Fiona showed us a very good time at the whisky-tasting, and value-for-money was incredible. Tomatin whisky itself is delicious - fragrant, soft and very drinkable! I would recommend this to anyone visiting Scotland.

This was a brilliant tour even with the covid 19 restrictions that were in place. We got to see round the main parts of the distillery and had a tasting at the end. Our guide Fiona along with the other staff in the shop went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable.

Hi alanah701. Thanks for the review and the five green circles! We're doing our best to keep our tours as close to normal as possible and it's nice to know that's appreciated. ...and, of course, it's always nice to get a wee dram to taste at the end! All the best, Cheers Ken

My friends booked the Legacy tour for my birthday and we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide Fiona was friendly and knowledgeable, and made us feel very welcome. This was my first tour of a distillery and I learned a lot about the distilling process and the history of the distillery itself. At the end of the tour we tried 3 drams of different whiskies, and we were even treated to an extra one since it was my birthday! It was a great day and I would heartily recommend Tomatin distillery to anyone interested in visiting a distillery.
