Recently in Scotland visited this distillery. Spent an enjoyable time touring this establishment and finding out about the making of the whiskey. Plenty of ladders to go up and down so not so disabled friendly

We had a tour with Karen and found it really informative and love the old traditional techniques and methods Glendronach is using. We had a 11am tour on a Saturday and it was nice and quiet.

Visited Glendronach a few weeks back and absolutely loved it. It's been on my list of distilleries to visit for a while and I was not disappointed. Really personal tour from Karen, lovely traditional distillery and first class whisky. 5 stars in every way.
