THE STILLHOUSE & WAREHOUSE 3 TASTING

TIME: 11.30am

DAYS: Monday to Friday



£75 per person / lasts around 1 hour 30 mins

(no under 18’s / no drivers drams)



Not quite a tour, not just a tasting… Start off with a sip of new make spirit in the Stillhouse, before heading to the famous Warehouse 3 for something a little more… aged. Behind the heavy padlock on the traditional dunnage warehouse, and surrounded by barrels, butts and barriques, grab a valinch and pour some thought-provoking whiskies straight from the cask. An intimate tasting full of character(s) and great drams.
