We shared the tasting tray of four different whiskeys. All good, but different. Easy to share with amount given. Might be too much for one person, unless you are a big whiskey drinker. Great historic building to enjoy the tastes!

Have been thoroughly introduced to whisky and never liked it before. Great gifts for the men in your life . We have a good collection and the bottles are a great story piece . worth a look in .

I’ve been past this “shop” a couple of times in the past, but it’s always been closed. This time however, it was not only open, but the duty manager went out of her way to make us welcome.

Four tastings later and a purchase or two we weaved our way back to the car - good job we had a sober driver with us! Don’t stop for the tasting if you have to drive.

Our host was very knowledgeable about the whisky and kept us entertained as we sank deeper into the comfortable chairs and worked out way through the tastings.

Great way to spend an hour. Thoroughly recommended!

We spend about an hour in this very comfortable whisky lounge have a couple of drinks, warming up by the fire and just relaxing.
