Talisker Distillery is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport in the village of Carbost. Come and visit us for a tour of the Distillery, see our 5 copper pot stills and the traditional worm tubs that make our Talisker so unique, then take a look at the casks in the warehouse where the Angel’s Share is lost to evaporation during maturation. Have a taste of our award winning Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky in our Visitor Centre.

I toured the distillery with 5 adult family members. Our tour guide was Georgina. She was very friendly, professional and informative. The tour was great and the process was explained with both jargon and basic terms for complete understanding. Thank you Georgina!

This was an interesting tour. You learn a lot about how whisky is made and see all the main steps. You get a taste of only one of their whiskies, however. It would have been nice to taste two different varieties. Other distilleries I’ve visited...More

An interesting distillery tour covering the history of the distillery and methods of production. Has a good, well stocked shop at the end. Makes for a good wet weather day alternative for either a morning or afternoon. Seasonal opening may apply.

We came early and booked a tour. We got a time slot in the afternoon. Used our pass to get the tour for free. We visited in the outer season though. Do not know if you can book online for free.
