    Amazing tour! Was entertaining learning about their whiskeys but also the churchs history, as the distillery is located inside a centuries old church with attached graveyard, both steeped in history and restored. Most importantly the guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about their stuff. And the whiskey was incredibly delicious. Was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I would definitely recommend and do again.

    First a quick video hosted by the founder of the distillery. Next an efficient tour of the grounds and inside the church/distillery. Then a taste test of various whiskeys followed topped off with a gin taste, all very good and generous pours to say the least. I learned a lot about the process, and everyone was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
