Fife Malt Whisky
Sep 2021
The tour was very interesting with Alan, the Guide, giving clear explanations of the whisky making process. Also provided appropriate insight into the brief history of the distillery, sourcing the local barley and mineral water. Distillery is in a beautiful countryside setting on on the east coast of Fife. Definitely worth a visit for those interested in single malt whisky.

Fun and informative whisky tour!
Sep 2021
We had a lovely morning touring the distillery. I've been to a few distilleries and although Kingsbarns is much newer than many, I still learnt a lot here and would recommend going. Nice lunch in the cafe afterwards too!

Whisky and Gin Tour
Jul 2021 • Friends
Visited the distillery in July with my friend. We went on the gin and whisky tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide Dot. She was exceptionally friendly and her tour was very engaging. We came away with a little bit of history on both whisky and gin. A must for anyone visiting the area. Highly recommended 👍🏻.

My friends and family had a great time at Kingbarns Distillery and Visitors Centre. We had a very friendly and informative tour guide called Dot. The tour was fun and interesting. We learned a bit of history, tasted some samples and visited the gift shop. Definitely worth a visit.

Excellent experience. Very interesting and informative guide Gordon. I brought my parents as it was my dad's birthday. Would highly recommend a visit. Samples given at the end of the tour even the driver got to take their samples home. Thank you 😊

Great distillery and a very friendly team!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Very friendly welcome followed by an excellent tour from Ronny. The distillery is really well presented and the process is well articulated.

The tour combines well with a walk to or from St Andrews, Crail or Anstruther and the distillery is easy to reach by bus.

Brilliant experience.
Sep 2021
The tour itself was amazing as the tour guide was welcoming, extremely knowledgeable about the whole distilling process, and had a brilliant sense of humour to boot.The little coffee shop had a welcoming ambiance and served delicious snacks and coffee. Had a lovely chat with the gentleman serving in the shop which made the whole experience a very friendly and enjoyable one.....the whisky tasting also helped!
