The tasting was informative. The distillery offers tours every hour. My husband much enjoyed the whiskey and longed to visit. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Must see when in the gorgeous town of Oban.

The tour was well attended but tours run every hour in season. I had booked through their website. We got an overview over history and expression of the Oban whisky. Very friendly and calm tour, no rushing and hectic.

I enjoyed a tour of this distillery and Stuart, our guide, was not only an expert on the subject but also made it interesting and fun. I would certainly recommend anyone visiting Oban not to miss a tour of this distillery.

Tour guide Catriona was extremely knowledgable and passionate about her job and the history and ongoing success of the third smallest single malt Distillery in Scotland. Samples of 14 year old and un- bottled 12 year old were great. Thoroughly recommend it.

There might still have been a city here, but the story tells us that Oban grew up around this distillery. The visitor center is good and you might take a tour or even have a interactive tour if you can't make time for a tour.
