Located in the heart of Oban, this little distillery has undergone little change or expansion since its establishment, now that it finds itself in the midst of urban development. As Friends of the Classic Malts, we enjoyed a complementary tour and had thankfully booked in...More

The guide was very informative and explained the whole process of distilling. Was good to see the large vats used to start the process,

You do not have to do it, but I recommend it - especially the Oban tour is really nice. The best DIAGEO tour.
