Quite quiet town lies an old distillery. Coastally briny character yet subtle fruitiness is the uniqueness of the spirit since 1826. Staffs are very very helpful and nice. Special mention about Amanda, Kathy, still man Mark and mash man Mike who answered my questions precisely.

Its a small distillery but very old. We stopped in at closing and they let us in the look around. Nice staff.

A walking tour through this small distillery in Wick. Samples were available, and there was a shop in which to make purchases.

There is visitor centre with some good information, but disappointed that it is 10 pounds to see the distillery and have tastes of whisky. At least a small sample in the visitors centre would be a good gesture.
