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,
