Visited Glen Grant primarily as we wanted to see the gardens, and knew little about this particular brand. As we had 45 minutes till the next tour, we started off with what turned out to be a charming walk through the perfectly manicured gardens and glen. We then got taken on a tour of the distillery by our guide, Andrew.... More

Recently toured Glen Grant. I had not had any of their whiskies before so I really did not know what to expect. We toured the facility and production areas. The grounds are very beautiful and the creek runs right alongside of the distillery. After the tour we sit down and tasted a number of selections. When finished there we took... More

Whilst it was a wet October weekend, the welcome was warm and with the beautiful Distillery, you could have been transposed back in time to when the brothers Grant started distilling their fine Malt whisky

Interesting tour and one can also see the bottling plant. The gardens are really peaceful at first as you walk through the orchard and then at the back of the garden there is a pathway along the river and waterfalls. Really beautiful!

We visited Glen Grant with our 11 year old son unsure whether the tour would hold his interest - we needn't have worried! We were lucky enough to go round the tour on our own, a party of 5. Andrew our tour guide was informative, knowledgeable and friendly and made it so enjoyable. It was great to not only be... More

In small group with knowledgable guide on well organised tour. Welcomed to take photos in most areas of the distillery. The surroundings are smart as is the reception room for tastings. Too late to walk around gardens but recommended to return next day for gardens and show tour ticket if requested. Glen Grant whiskies are on the light side and... More

We arrived and waited in the coffee shop for the tour to begin, nice scones to be sure and illy coffee. Shirley, our guide, took our small group around. She was very good and able to answer all queries. The process was in full swing so we got a real sensory treat. The tastings at the end were of the... More

I'm a regular visitor here. Not so much for the tour but the coffee shop has THE BEST scones. Great place to relax after a walk round the gardens.

We were staying at Aigas in the Highlands, on a Whisky and Wildlife holiday. We arrived at the distillery about 10.30 in a party of 10. Our leader paid. I think it was £5 each. We were each given a £5 receipt, to be refunded if we bought a bottle. Our distillery guide Jane greeted us and we started the... More
