Tours

We offer a range of tours all led by our fantastic tour guides who have become well known for giving some of the most entertaining and informative tours in the industry. We have a variety of different tours and something to suit all visitors. 

There’s something magical about the alchemy of whisky making, and there’s no better way to appreciate it than by visiting a distillery. As one of the few independent distilleries in Scotland - and one that proudly follows traditional practice - we promise a particularly fascinating experience. Our Visitor Centre was recently awarded Best Visitor Experience 2018 by the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions, having previously been awarded Best Contribution to Wine & Spirits Tourism by the prestigious Drinks Business Magazine in 2017.  We pride ourselves on offering the warmest of welcomes to our home village.

We welcome visitors all year round, with tours of the distillery as well as tutored tastings, whisky and chocolate pairings and short 'Drop Inn' tours inbetween the main tours which are great for families with young children. Numbers for all tours are limited, so we would advise booking tour places in advance, especially during the very busy summer months.  Our Visitor Centre, shop and CASKS Cafe are open every day if you’d just like to drop in and soak up the uniquely calming atmosphere. CASKS Cafe serves a variety of soups, local cheese and meat platters and of course a selection of coffees, teas and home baking.

On Saturday 2nd March, we resumed our summer opening hours meaning that we are open daily from 10am to 5.15pm.
