Be led by someone who nose

Through the years, a warm welcome has always awaited our peaty pilgrims, notably in the form of a warming dram, as well as a friendly greeting from Jackie and the team at the Visitor Centre. Whether you’re an Ardbeginner or a seasoned connoisseur, come and learn more about our wonderful whisky and explore our beautiful Distillery on one of our fascinating tours or tastings. Enjoy a delicious bite to eat and have a look around the shop – you can redeem your tour voucher for £5 against any bottle in our Core Range.

After an uncertain couple of years, we’re slowly getting back to normal, and have various options for you to enjoy depending on when you’re planning on visiting…

Open Monday to Friday, and after almost two years we’re delighted to be reintroducing some Distillery tours in March – for details click HERE


Our full Summer schedule runs from 5th April to the end of October, and we’ll be open Tuesdays to Saturdays (with some exceptions.)  For full details click HERE


Planning for the colder months?  We’ll be open five days a week and will update our winter plans over the next few months.


Feis Ile takes place from Friday 27th May to Saturday 4th June.  Our full event schedule and booking details can be found HERE.


Some things to note:

We’d love to welcome you every day of the year, but there are some dates we have to close – details at the foot of this page.

Our Visitor Centre and Old Kiln Café are 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 at all times. Unfortunately, we can’t allow dogs in the tasting areas or the Bistro.

We will be closed:
21st June 2022
22nd June 2022
23rd June 2022
11th August 2022
8th October 2022
Two weeks over Christmas and New Year

*dates may be added to through the year, but we’ll try not to!*
