Ben Nevis Distillery

Paid a quick visit on Thursday the 4th of August after reading about this Distillery in my whisky book. I was looking to purchase a more unique kind of whisky on my trip to Scotland. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and had a look around the shop. I was treated to two malts, the young 4 yr old and the 10 yr old. Both fabulous and the 4 yr old has real potential, I settled on the 10 yr old, it was perfection. Soft and smooth, just how I like whisky. Many thanks for a nice visit.

On arrival, fair size car park at the front of the building. Arrived just in time for the tour which cost £5.00 each.

Got there first thing (10 am) so had a private tour with Tom who actually works in the distillery. Great knowledge, neat tour and views of Ben Nevis. He added a lot of local knowledge which was interesting.

We have been to several distilleries and at some point, they all run together. We walked away having still learned new things at this one. The tour was succinct and professional, yet light and fun too. Great stop, loved the mountain views

Being a female under 25 I am not a big fan of Whisky however going round this distillery was so fun and educational I wanted to do it again! I cant believe how much I learnt and I just loved the whole experience. I find it amazing that the whisky is actually made from the water coming of Ben Nevis. For a fiver its well worth it!
