The staff was very helpful despite being overloaded by guests. The visit was interesting and the whiskey was quite good.

“Interesting and delicious”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

A must try for scotch lovers. You see it sign marked as Bells as this distillery we were told supplies most of the scotch for Bells.
Vanessa was a wonderful guide and considerate of my wife and bub, so they could do the second part of the tour safely.
She had a fabulous knowledge of the distillery and the best ways to taste and enjoy whiskey. She was a fun and knowledgeable guide so she deserves a mention by name for sure.

I swapped my Friends of malts printed off pass for a full passport here and got free entry and tasting and the passprts was good for Dalwhinnie half and hour up the road.

The cask aged special Blair Atholl is brilliant.

I visited the distillery with three of my friends. We are great whisky fans and were absolutely delighted with our experience. Our tour guide ,Vanessa was both, entertaining and informative with a wealth of knowledge and therefore would definitely recommend the tour and the whisky. Beautiful building as well. Thank you for the great experience.

“Best distillery tour ever.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I have done a fair amount of distillery tours but this one was probably the best, myself and my wife were lucky enough to be in a small party of 6 people in total, the tour guide Rainer, was interesting, witty, and very knowledgeable, not only about Blair Athol but the industry in general, for £6.50 a person, very good value for money, and the single malt is lovely.
