Overview
Whisky distilleries abound in Scotland and deciding where to go can be tricky, while driving between distilleries takes tastings off the table. That’s not a problem on this intimate small-group tour, as your driver-guide transports you to two specially selected distilleries in a top-of-the-range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach. There, learn about the history and production of whisky, before sampling for yourself.

Great food and nice facilities - we had lunch here on a charity cycle ride (over 40 of us!). The service was quick and friendly and the soup and sandwiches were tasty, served with a smile and certainly hit the spot! Well done guys! 😀

Casks of all shapes and sizes come here for repairs and maintenance. It is quite mesmerising watching the men methodically fix whisky barrels. The video beforehand gives an insight (and a smell) into the business, while afterwards you get a free taste of something that’s been sat in a cask. Really enjoyed the tour.

Can't recommend this visit enough, especially as a complement to the visit of a Speyside distillery. Seeing the coopers at work repairing or making barrels is a mesmerising experience, and breeds real respect for true craftmanship - a must-see in Speyside!

I knew nothing about cask/barrel making before this trip apart from what we had learnt at Glenlivet about casks being imported and reused to add flavour to malts. The coopers are incredible, it's very physical and specialised work and the speed they work at is staggering. The guide we had was delightful and very knowledgable, it was a thoroughly enjoying and interesting

Stopped off here on our way home from a night in Aviemore, we knew it wasn't too far from home but had never visited. We enjoyed a coffee and cake in the wee shop, which had a good selection of hot and cold drinks, soup , sandwiches and lovely cakes . There is a small gift shop offering some lovely looking gifts at good prices. Staff very welcoming and doing an excellent job during these difficult times. We decided to do the tour of the cooperage entry is £4 per adult and well worth a visit. Very well informed tour and a great insight into the making of these whisky barrels. Both my husband and I were glad we decided on the tour. Ronnie our guide was excellent guide and did a great job. Definitely worth a visit here. A great day out even if you live in the nearby area, I recommend a visit. Great to have such a great wee gem in our area. The cooperage and coffee shop are closed at weekends.
