The tour was excellent and the guide very knowledgeable. The shop could have been better stocked with a wider range of products and a little café would have been a welcome addition, after all, someone has to drive!

Not the cheesy tourist trap distillery tour. One of the employees takes you through the distillery from grain to Scotch. Informative and fun
