Some things to note:

Our Visitor Centre is fully accessible for those with limited mobility, but due to the nature of the old Distillery buildings, some tours and tastings may be a little trickier to get around. Please contact us if you want to check any details for your visit.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in the shop, but we ask you keep them on a short lead. Unfortunately, we can’t allow dogs in the tasting areas or the Old Kiln Café.
