Overview
More
Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery is a producer of premium malt whiskies and superb craft beers. Our basic tour lasts 45 mins and begins in our visitor’s centre and flows the way the spirits go, past the grist mill where you can taste some of the various strains of malted & un- malted barley, or other cereals that we as a craft brewer as well as a distiller get to play and experiment with. Onward into the heart of the Brew & Still house through the smells of the mash tun & wash backs, past the gleaming swan necked Stills and then up into the warehouse and bottling hall before returning back to the visitor’s centre for a wee dram of two of the whiskies in our Macaloney Cask Selection series along with up to four of our craft beers. Tours run every hour on the hour from 11am to 8pm

Stopped by to check it out and really enjoyed ourselves! Nice place to sit and have a pint. Great selection of beer! You can either get a flight or a pint. We had the ipa and the porter. Will be coming by more often!
