    We went for the whisky and gin tasting. I phoned and asked about not having a party whisky as knew that one of the group did not like. They were very helpful and put in a different one. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable. I was so impressed I bought a few drinks and went back the following day and bought more

    Simply Great
    What a great shop. Well stocked and with a friendly, helpful and knowledgeable member of staff. We were welcomed (dog as well with a treat) and shown the shop. We were assisted and guided with expert knowledge from Donna. A lovely experience culminating in the purchase of several bottles. An experience we will repeat on our return next year. Highly recommend a visit.

    Must stop in Scotland
    A fabulous tasting curated by John taking us through 5 different whiskeys . He gave us a history of scotch, tasting decorum and introduced us to 5 different whiskeys we don’t often get back in the states. Much better than any distillery tour.

    Robertson’s - Gin & Whisky Tasting Experience
    Visited Robertsons while on a short break in Pitlochry. Staff were very welcoming. John was a great host and guided our group through our gin and whisky tasting experience. Very knowledgeable and an experience not to be missed if you're visiting the area. Great shop too for you to bring a bottle or two home with you!

    Single Malt Scotch Tasting
    We had a very enjoyable time learning about single malt whiskeys from John. He demonstrated the right way to sample and drink scotch. (Yes, there is a wrong way.) An added bonus was that our table was shared with folks doing a gin tasting, so we got the benefit of that as well. Altogether a well-spent afternoon.

Was impressed with the lovely staff who were knowledgeable about the gin and whisky we were asking about. More than helpful to let us taste samples without pressure to buy.
