We visited Ben Nevis Distillery for their tour in June and found it very interesting and informative. Seems like a small distillery and they don't bottle on site but tour was good.

Interesting viewing the different areas, and I loved smelling the different smells from room to room. Information on the tour was a bit hit and miss - difficult European accent to understand at times but she spoke loudly to attempt to cater for the large...More

Decided to pop in and have a look more or less on a whim. Pleased I did as I found it an interesting and informative tour of quite a historic distillery. By-products are sold off to farmers, as in the case of the barley mash...More

We wanted to tour a distillery in Scotland during our visit - this one ended up being the one due to location. Tour guide was knowledgeable. Well worth the 1 hour we spent there.

The location of the distillery below Ben Nevis is stunning. On arriving we were told a tour would start in 5 minutes which was great. The first part of the tour is a video, which is truly cringe worthy - full of stereo types, cliches...More

We went to the distillery with low expectations as we really prefer heavily peated whiskies. Ben Nevis don’t really do that type of whisky. However.....this proved to be the highlight of the 4 distilleries we visited. Our guide, a polish woman (old aggy) surprised us....More

My husband and I visited this distillery which sits in a beautiful location whilst on holiday. Couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised than we were with the tour and the whisky. Aggy was very knowledgeable and patient with people on our tour who knew very...More

We had some extra time in Fort William and I wanted to know something about whiskies, so we dropped in here just in time for a tour. Unfortunately, the boiler was broken so we couldn't see anything in action. That didn't stop them from charging...More
