I got hooked to "Glenfarclas 15" a couple of years ago when having it with an amazing chocolate cake. Therefore, visiting the distillery was a dream coming true. It is a beautiful place in terms of the scenery and the buildings but the tasting room is just the most wonderful one I have seen so far (and I have been... More

Our visit was by far the best distillery visit we have ever done. Our guide was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the company and whisky in general. This combined with his natural skill to explain things (he so happened to be a retired teacher) means that the tour we had was very high quality. He also had... More

Recently toured the distillery as a party of 5 persons. The lobby area is under some slight renovation and it was the last day of tours possible for the season so we were quite happy to be there. After a tour to the production facilities we stopped into the warehouse. Got to sample a wee bit and our tour guide... More

I can well remember visiting Glenfarclas as part of a large group in 2005. It was the first distillery I had ever visited and was mighty impressed. After moving to live in the Highlands in 2008, distillery visits have become quite a regular feature of my life! However, I had never retuned to Glenfarclas until October 2016 when my brother-in-law... More

I was not familiar with this distillery before my tour but now I am a huge fan! They have the best tour around, very detailed, well run by friendly long time staff with a beautiful tasting room at the end. A great spread of spirits to sample (and purchase if you like) with a guide to help you through the... More

Unique experience of a beautiful family owned distillery. One of the few distilleries where you are allowed to take pictures. We were extremely lucky and were allowed to taste very old whisky's in the warehouse and had a lovely tasting of standard and exceptional whisky's in their very cozy officers lounge. Our guides (we had 2 of them) made us... More

As is usually the case in family owned distilleries there is a good story to be told and that is certainly the case with Glenfarclas. We had a superb guide, who was an ex teacher and his delivery kept his "pupils" attention. He was able to answer all questions that were asked and it was clear that this was more... More

Glenfarclas distillery is located at the foot of Ben Rinnes. The tour lasts over an hour and is very informative. The tasting room is amazing and the staff is so nice and helpful. Probbly one of the best and detailed tours in the area, even though I never had a bad tour in speyside.
