While hiking Speyside we visited many distileries but this was the only tour where they let us taste "Wash" as well as unaged "Spirit". The tasting was interesting and the group was of a perfect size for opinions and comparisons. Our guide was really nice and answered all our questions.

Visited the shop and tried 3 different whiskies. Excellent help and advice from very friendly staff. We went back later in the day after visiting another distillery to buy a second bottle! Ended up with the 18 year old and the 16 year old hand filled. Awesome!

Taken by family and friends as part of birthday celebration. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. A person local to area so able to provide relevant anecdotes to make tour more interesting. Tasting of 5 malt whiskies. Excellent value for money. The shop sold pack of small bottles so drivers could take home their tasters.

If you are looking to tour the Aberlour (Aber Lau Er) Distillery, choose one of the other tours. The Casks from the Past is only a tasting, but you do get to try their whisky which is only available at the distillery. Great whisky tasting in a really nice atmosphere and you get to keep your tasting glasses! I had... More

Our group of 8 are the founder members of the 105 Club, a Whisky Appreciation Society and we all appreciated the very educational tour of this historic distillery, culminating in a very atmospheric whisky tasting experience in...

While staying at the Mash Tun in Aberlour, the distillery is only a short walk away. We had an excellent tour guide who managed to highlight the specifics of Aberlour compared to other distilleries, and a great tasting to finish off the tour.
