  • Glenfarclas has a fantastic 5 decades tour. Our guide Steven was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour and guide. The distillery is independent and family owned and run, keeping to their traditional methods. Fantastic whisky!
  • These guys are just fantastic. They're super welcoming and despite having spectacular whiskies, they're really humble unlike some of the bigger distilleries that are so slick they're bordering on pretentious. To top it off, they lead us back to the car under umbrellas so we didn't get wet. A must to visit! 👍👍👍
