Informative tour and you get to keep your sample glass. For drivers, you can take your sample home with the pots provided. Due to Scotland’s zero tolerance on drink driving this is a fantastic touch. We also timed it right as we were one of...More

This was by far the best guided distillery tour I've ever experienced. Interjected with facts, history and comedy , our guide Bill made this a very pleasurable and educational experience. What this guy doesn't know about the industry, isn't worth knowing! Highly recommended tour!!

The tour at the Oban distillery was great. It cost 10 pounds, but you get several tastings, a free whiskey glass and discount if you make a purchase. The Oban distillery is very small, so the tour is intimate. Tours are every half hour, are...More

I am not a whisky fan (and remain so even after the tour). Nevertheless, the tour was very interesting and sensory. The guide was knowledgable and engaging. You get to taste two types of whisky, which alone makes the ticket good value for money. You...More

Buying in advance would help as it can get busy but the tours are very regular you shouldn't have a problem
