The signature tour with the guide from New Zealand was a trip highlight for me. Every staff member was pleasant and eager to share their knowledge of whisky. Great tour and staff!

We thoroughly enjoyed the signature tour. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgable and conducted a great tour. My hubby went away very happy with a bottle of Mannochmore recommended by Paul. Thanks for the tour.

We booked through the phone and the reception staff was lovely and welcoming. We had a lovely tour (we happen to work in the Whisky industry) with Michaela. She was both informative and entertaining. She was very helpful for recommendations at the bar as well.
