Fun tour today hosted by Malcolm who was charming and witty. Informative and interesting insight to how this beer is made. Really enjoyed the tasting session and the opportunity to purchase some of this great beer.

Loved this tour and I don't even like beer. Cost £5 per person and was well worth it as there were only 4 of us on the tour each of the 10 bottles was shared between us. They explain the brewing process and show you the brew house which is interesting. The onsite shop sells all ypur favourites and also... More

A great day out, which taught me a lot about brewery, particularly with craft ale's. It also gave me a lot more exposure into the different flavours of ale, and what causes the differences. James, the tour guide, was superlative in every way - the whole group came away thinking what a charming man he was. For the price, there... More

As it was out of season and my partner and I were the only customers, unfortunately the tour wasn't running, but instead we had a brilliant private tasting. The beers are delicious, especially the Cairngorm Gold! Helpful and enthusiastic staff too. Can't recommend enough!

We visited Cairngorm Brewery after sampling their ale in a nearby pub. The tour itself was limited to one room containing vats but was still informative even if the visual was a bit lacking. The tasting afterwards however was the best ever! No shortage of beer being passed around and we were able to sample all of the current ales... More
