Went to see all the different types of whiskey. Whiskey tasting and lots of history. The owner bought the whole stock of the factory when it closed so will run out one day of all these different types. Still reasonably priced. Very informative too.

We shared the tasting tray of four different whiskeys. All good, but different. Easy to share with amount given. Might be too much for one person, unless you are a big whiskey drinker. Great historic building to enjoy the tastes!

Great set up. Staff very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. Interesting stuff to look at and bits of history to learn. Good variety of tasters, a whisky enthusiasts place to be. Great view of the water as well.
