Make sure you stop and enjoy a lunch platter and take the tour and tasting at the Old Kempton Distillery. Certainly worth a few hours. Lots of whiskey samples.

Booked for a lunch here with my elderly parents; Dad is a bit of a whisky fan. I thought we’d have lunch and then take a tour of the distillery. Was prepared to splash out the $35 per person for a tasting and tour as...More
