A beautiful place and the tour with Mickey as a guide made the visit even better. Always nice to learn new things especially when it comes to whiskey and their whisky is great. The whole staff was kind and the shop is awsome.

Great use of an hour and good value at just £9.50 pp. you get a dram of their whisky and a little glass to take home. Our tour guide Jamie was friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a trip

I was there in August. The website said it only closes for Christmas and New Year's Day. It should be open on January 4th. You can email them to be sure. Go to their website for the email address. Good luck!

Based on the last 2 years its been open on the 29th of December, so I would be pretty confident it would be the same this year.
