Whisky & Gin Tastings
Relax and savour Scotland’s finest spirits in our Tasting Room with friendly expert hosts taking you through the nosing and tasting. We feature many limited edition whiskies and gins, giving you a distinctive experience every time you visit.
Tastings can be booked for individuals or groups with our Tasting Room accommodating up to 20 people. You’ll enjoy five samples in each session, over 60 to 90 minutes. And we don’t forget the drivers, if they would like to participate in the experience without actually tasting, we can bottle their samples to take home and enjoy later.
Our menu of tasting options is below with links to book online.
