It was a really good tour that lasted over an hour. The tour guide was very good and knew the history of the distillery in so much detail and answered all fielded questions about the production process as we walked round from grain to barrel. The tour came with tasting from the cask and a wee dram from their original... More

Attended a private tour as part as a group over the new year. Our tour guide Nick was very knowledgeable and friendly and provided a good mix of history, distilling knowledge and visual information as well a couple of tasting experiences! Would recommend for anyone whether you are a whisky fan or not!

On a trip to Oban for the new year we attended the Distillery as a large group and as such were provided with an exclusive tour just for us. We learned a lot and on every tour there is a chance to try some of their product - which an an obvious benefit. The tour guide was cheerful and happy... More

I booked the distillery tour for a group of 18 - everyone had a great experience, the tour was a good mix of visuals, history and the actual distillery. Our tour guide Nick was brilliant, would definitely recommend!

This is a very interesting tour of one of Scotlands best distilleries. The guide was informative and the whisky was beautiful. All in all a great way to spend an hour or two in Oban.

Lovely distillery in the centre of Oban. Our guide was spanish which sometimes made it a little harder understand what she was saying. The distillery shop sold plenty of its own whiskys along with other brands of whisky which we thought was a good idea.

Had excellent guide in Nic to take us through the history and the process of making Oban whisky as well as a nice tasting of the products with a free souvenir glass. Also chose the extended sampling (£10 extra but worth it).

A rush through a rainstorm brought us into the comfort of the distillery reception. (We were very glad we'd booked as other people were being turned away. It is obviously a very popular attraction.) Here we met our guide. I thought it would be difficult to understand her broken English, but actually she spoke so clearly and had such a... More
