‘Beautiful’ might just be the word that gives nothing away when talking about this distillery located on the Isle of Skye on Sleat Peninsula. The distillery has a courtyard where you can sit and take in the fresh air and the charm of the surrounding. There is also a whisky shop and a café.
Distilling on this site began in the 19th century, however; there have been some stutters in its working until January 2017 when it came back in full swing into making of Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
It is easier to understand the distillery with a guided tour of the site. You will be shown several of the processes that are involved in making of the single malt and also feel the aura of a Hebridean Highland distillery. The guides will also let you in on some related local knowledge about the history of the distillery. At the end of the tour, you will enjoy a complimentary dram.
The distillery doesn’t admit children of twelve and below into the production areas for their own safety. However, from 13 to 17, they can be admitted free as long as an adult is paying accompanies them.
Tour is around 8 people per batch and it is best to book ahead of arrival.
The visitors’ centre is there for your enjoyment and it is where you would see a café and a shop and take a distillery tour.
