“Interesting tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

The distillery is situated in the centre of Oban and well worth a visit,
Very informative and friendly guide takes you through the whisky making process. The tasting is the best part and you are allowed to keep your glass as a souvenir

“Oban Distillery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I really enjoyed my visit to the distillery. The staff there was just charming and quite helpful. The distillery is right there in the town and east to find. What a landscape the waterfront just across the way. Oban is beautiful and the Oban whisky is as ever delightful.

“WELL WORTH THE DISTILLERY TOUR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Raining or not, whisky-lover or not this Oban Whisky distillery tour is well worth the hour. Professional team/staff; excellent tour leader; clean, clear and well run place. So whether you like whisky or not this is well worth a look.

As said before - whisky tasting at the end, free engraved glass given and worth mentioning that the Oban whisky is cheaper to buy here than around the town.

“Oban distillery tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Signed up for the tour early and were greeted by our friendly hostess and given a very concise and informative tour of the small Oban distillery. The history and the distilling process were very clearly explained, as was the cask aging process, tasting straight from a cask as was the gift of an Oban distillery glass were a special treat.
Mel was an especially delightful host, happy to pour us all manner of delightful different whiskeys to taste.
