Of the 9 distilleries I visited in Scotland this was probably the quietest and most intimate experience. The tasting expert spent an hour with our group alone. We tried 4 whiskies. The organic is a cool idea. The 10yr and the 10yr 100 proof are...More

It was worth it to book the tour which includes four drams. They do a drivers pack for designated drivers. Our guide was funny and enthusiastic about the whisky produced. The experience was a good one even though I honestly can’t stand drinking whisky.

Three of us stopped here to tour. We wanted to see a small speyside distillery that made whiskey that was not mass exported. This is as small batch as you can get. Hand made whiskey, made with pride by locals. There are only three people...More
