Edradour is promoted as the smallest distillery in Scotland, and with it not being affiliated to the Diageo cartel, we thought it deserved a visit.

The facility does play to its strengths, always emphasising that it is small and unique. This is certainly apparent wherever you look.

The tour was excellent, with a relaxed tasting session preceeding an informative walkround of the manufacturing and storage areas. The staff were charming and informative, recognising their audience and ensuring that the everyone enjoyed the whole experience.

Before and after the tour, the whisky bar is not to be missed! With the bartender able to offer good recommendations whether you are a regular whisky drinker or just a beginner!

Those going on the tour were given a whisky glass to take home, which is a nice touch. Interestingly - and this may relate to many of us - I sometimes do not taste all the flavours of the whisky, certainly not as they are described by experts. However, when I returned home, I unpacked my free glass - which I had used to taste the whisky during the tour - and was amazed to smell so many of the wood flavours that come from the barrels during maturation! It was a fantastic experience and really topped off the day for me.

It is definately a distillery I hope to visit again,

Thank Sheikh_Well

An excellent facility to Tour, (and taste) - but the walkers be aware, its quite a climb uphill from the town.

but the tour is really worth the money with two samples to taste and you get to keep the tasting glass.

When you are into whisky, you heard about all that fuzz about Edradour being the 'smallest distillery in Scotland' and especially in a tourstic town like Pitlochry, you do not expect a very good distillery tour, but just basic promotion and marketing. But this is wrong! We have been to many different distilleries during several visits to Scotland and Edradour was one of the best. The people took time to explain everything (even if a video is not my favourite way to do it), you are able to see a very well stocked warehouse and the malting process later on and you get two whiskies and a Glencairn whisky glass with the tour price. With GBP 7,50 per guest, this is real value for money compared to other places. If you are in central Scotland and just want to see one distillery, this is the one to visit. And if you visited many other distilleries and want to visit another one, you may also visit Edradour for sure. Recommendation!
