We didn't check their website before going and arrived to find it closed until 2018. Very disappointing as we hadn't seen many local whiskies in local shops and were looking forward to buying some.

Great atmosphere,good food, really nice setting for sampling local culture! Friendly staff! They have a £5 fish friday which is fantastic value and very tasty. Either traditional fish and chips, fish chowder or steamed fish and mashed potatoes.

It was a pleasant drive out there during a visit to Wigstown but when we arrived it was all closed up and apparently under extensive renovation when I knockdown the door of the office. Best to phone ahead if you are a dedicated fan!

The distillery tour is fascinating, although I believe it has been suspended during renovations at present. Phone ahead to check. Recently changed ownership, the new 'distiller' has great plans to expand the operation. Great tour, and a nice wee dram at the end.

This much troubled distillery is under new (Australian) management. A bright future lies ahead for local employment and new products. Sadly no tours for now, maybe next year? Call in and show you care. It could have been another lost gem. Be patient!

Called to visit this place but told it was in liquidation awaiting new ownership. Could be really interesting but the site needs a revamp in order to make it worthwhile to visit.
