  • Great to visit even when closed! The view from the distillery is stunning and makes you think of the sea that influences the taste of the whiskey. It was fun to watch the smoke coming from the chimney and imagine the whiskey in the making. It's a pity the shop was closed - so many people passing by every day, it's a missed opportunity for business to stay like this when actually it could still earn money for the distillery... We'll definitely be back!
  • The tour and the tastings choice were great for both, either experienced Talisker drinkers or novice ones. Mike is a real rock-star of tour guidance made it in extremely informative, pleasant, interactive and funny way. Totally recommended.
  • Parking was free and there was plenty of it. I booked a tour and tasting. The tour was neat. Saw the processes they do on site. Got a glimpse of the SCADA system. Very cool. There is also a shop there that has some unique bottles and items. Would do again.
  • One of the more fancy distilleries I've been to inside. A well stocked shop and a nice display of their ethos and history inside too. I liked that they have other whiskies available in the shop as well as their own - always a nice touch!
  • It is a great distillery with fantastic view, massive building with a lot of potential. There is small gift shop, outside bar, oyster shop around the corner-20 min walk. Very kind lady over 30, blue eyes and curly brown hair she sold us tickets-it is very busy and hard to get it. You got 10% discount from gift shop and pin for free. Was not happy with whisky tour, need improvement, the guide was very grumpy and not friendly
