If your a Whisky lover, this is the tour for you. Get to see how whisky is produced in a lovely environment as well as taste the product. Very nice cafe and rest rooms. You can even purchase souvenirs.

Faultless in every way. Meals never fail to disappoint. Nor the view! This time was for an event for Burnie Shines - absolutely delicious and best of all it was for dinner! We need this restaurant open at night more often.......please!

Tasting tours were not flexible in that you had to have cream liquors. There was no information given about each of the whiskeys like you get at wineries or breweries. Service was inattentive especially after finishing the tours and having a drink nothing was cleared....More

At $2 a half nip or $4 a nip for very good whisky this is a steal. What's more the food is very good and you get a substantial serve from very friendly wait staff

Hi Cheryl, we are sorry that you could not be accommodated for lunch. We certainly recommend that people make a booking before they come as we are very busy most days. We hope you will give us another try soon.

Thank you Peter Y, we appreciate your very positive feedback on our service. Glad you enjoyed our Peated whisky too - it is a very popular drop with those who like their whiskies on the smoky side.
