Our tour guide David was absolutely great! He was a hoot, and very knowledgeable about scotch and the Glengoyne brand. With my husband being a well-versed scotch drinker, and myself not scotch experienced at all, he did a great job of providing the right information to help bridge the gap. The guided tasting with the paired gourmet chocolates was great! To be honest, I was worried about it because I do not drink hard liquor typically. But I was very happy for a couple reasons: 1) Glengoyne uses no peat! 2) the chocolates helped take the edge off. 3) David's instruction helped me taste the flavors rather than just the alcohol. We were extremely glad to have signed up for this tour. Just be well prepared for your travel up to the distillery if you have not rented a car. The taxi ride is expensive but only about 40 minutes from Glasgow, but the buses only run every hour from the train stop in Milngavie, so if you miss the train like we did, you may be in a tough spot!

A guide to whiskey making, casking and storage. In 90 minutes you are given a nice overview and insights. Knowledgeable guide, courteous and helpful staff. Helped us getting a taxi back into Glasgow. Distillery is located in a scenic place and away from city. Tasting is of 10, 18 and 21 year whiskeys paired with chocolate

On a eu un super accueil suivi d’une visite complete de la distillerie et beaucoup d’explications tout au long du parcours. Ensuite une degustation des plus agréable dans un petit salon privé. Et toujours avec l’appui de notre guide sympathique et bien informée. Le site est aussi très enchanteurs et nous avons pris le temps de faire aussi quelques pas sur une piste de randonnée adjacente à la distillerie. Nous recommandons fortement cette visite!
