Ballindalloch Short Tour & Drams

We have designed this shorter experience to welcome visitors from our local area and beyond, to have access to our award-winning manual distillery and to hear how we make our sustainable single estate malt whisky.

You will walk through our production area with our distillery ambassador then sample two of our single cask Ballindalloch whiskies, to showcase how our smooth and fruity spirit matures in both American white oak barrels and European sherry butts. (We provide drivers bottles if required)

To avoid disappointment please book online prior to your visit, but if there is space on a tour, we accept walk-ins on the day.

Please remember that all visitors MUST be over the age of 18 to participate in any of our Distillery Experiences

The Art of Whisky Making

This is certainly not a tour! We are a small, craft distillery with a dedicated team. This is your chance to experience, and be fully involved in a full day of distillery operations and single malt production alongside them. Your day will start at 8am with Colin, the Distillery Manager, Davy, Neal, Josh and Sam. You will learn and assist them in all aspects of their day, from milling and mashing, distilling and cask filling to bottling and labelling. We do not rely on automation here, so prepare to be very busy!

Regardless of your level of whisky making knowledge, you are assured of learning something new. As the winner of the Icons of Whisky Craft Producer of the Year in 2016, 2018, 2020 and 2022, we are proud to be able to offer you a rare opportunity to experience whisky making and operations the way it always used to be. Your day will finish relaxing in the Family Room with a very special dram.

Lunch is provided, so if you have any dietary requirements, please let us know via bookings@ballindallochdistillery.com.

The experience is very hands on, and the distillery crew are very warm, friendly and interested in teaching you the ins and outs of everything that goes on at this unique distillery, which produces this most delicious Speyside whisky. This experience was a top lifetime memory in all respects" Mike Krancer, USA
