Just arrived at Pitchlory and wanted to book a tour but there was no more tour available. The friendly receptionist advised us and said there are some tours the other day. That‘s why we booked a tour for the next day at 10am. The tour guy was very friendly and explained everything in detail. At the end we had the chance to try one of the house whiskey‘, which was very tasty (spicy). Thank you ‚Bruce‘-Gordon that we now know how to drink whiskey! :-) cheers, Ana, Katrin and Sandy

Just visited this stunning distillery and was lucky enough to have Bruce as our tour guide. Very informative and interesting. Bruce kept my wife and I laughing the entire time. Learned they will be opening their 50 yeah old barrels this year (sealed in 1968!). Wish we had been around for that!

I timed it just right to get a one-to-one tour with Derrick. I knew very little about Whisky before this tour and am now much, much wiser and have a much improved appreciation for Whisky.
You need to pay attention on the tour, the amount of information coming at you can feel overwhelming.
a great way to spend an hour.

Toured the distillery and found it very interesting and informative. Bruce our guide entertained us throughout the tour, great fella, funny and he knows his stuff. Taster at end of tour much appreciated, and no pressure to buy anything. Although we bought a bottle of single malt as it really is moreish.
