Time well spent
nov. 2021
We were in the area and joined a tour late in the day. The history and process of whisky making were covered by Donna, our guide, in good detail. There was plenty of background information and all questions were answered. There is a look around the site and then the warehouse that includes some seriously expensive whisky. At the end of the tour, we got to taste the 10 and 15 year old. It really makes a difference, I bought the 15 year old.
The tour was not charged for. Instead a donation to the local food bank funds is requested, a great idea that we happily did.

A taste of class

I visited today with friends, due to covid the paid for tours have been cancelled but a few free tours are arranged with a request to make a donation to the Moray food bank - I think this is a brilliant idea and a great contribution to society. The tour was lead by Lauren who was knowledgable and friendly, she made the tour immensely interesting and engaged in all of our questions. The whiskey tasting at the end is recommended and savoured, the difference between the 10 and 15 year scotch is noticeable and compelling

Excellent Tour - Well worth a visit!
okt. 2021
From start to finish Kirsten (our tour guide) was so informative and friendly and full of facts and figures. My first ever tour and no doubt I've been spoilt and the benchmark has been set. A lovely setting, buildings such as the warehouse with its thousands of barrels was an amazing sight. Well worth a visit.

Excellent tour from start to finish

My wife and I went on the Classic Tour led by Matthew. Superb tour. Matthew had also worked in the production side took us through the whole process and history of the distillery. All our questions were answered with good humour and knowledge. The ship room at the end was also very interesting where we supped some lovely drams. Would definitely recommend.

This was so informative and the guide was really knowledgable, particulary as he had work his way through distillary roles.
This gave a real prospective to the whole process. Impressed that the company did not charge but accepted donations for tbeir charity of choice.
And you still got samples and if drink g a drive home sample.
A ace to visit and find out about history process a d flavour.

Fun, complete tour

Great tour which included distillery history and visits to every aspect of production including the warehouse area. The other tours were not nearly as complete in following all aspects of production, typically one or more steps was closed off due to COVID or other restrictions. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, plus a nice tasting at the end with a take-away bottle for drivers.

An excellent tour - if you are in the area you must go!!
sep. 2021 • Par
We did a road trip of Scotland and went to about 10 distilleries, doing their respective tours.

For the actual tour of the site, Glenfarclas was by far the best. The speaker was very knowledgable and they really do take the time to not rush you through the site.

The speaker was very balanced. They gave honest appraisals. This balance made the tour a real pleasure. There was no over sales focused hard push, or telling you over and over how amazing they must be. It was factual, fair and honest.

It’s a beautiful distillery and it was a pleasure to be shown round.

The tasting element was also well presented.

Glenfarclas are currently only doing their basic tour. When they resume their more lengthy tastings I’ll be sure to return!

For completeness I note the tour was free on account of it being during the covid period. There was a gentle collection for a local charity - which I was more than happy to contribute towards. I think this is just outstanding - and shows the value of family businesses.

Only very mild negative is that the pricing of bottles in the distillery shop is a little random. Some bottles have a good price that you’d get elsewhere (say 15 YO). There are a few bottles at quite a premium to what you’d pay on Amazon or other such sites (say 25 YO or 175). There didn’t seem to be too much rhyme or reason as to what were good buys and what were not.

For completeness I’d note the family cask series (IMHO) was very reasonably priced. Plenty of bottles being sold slightly less than you’d pay at auction (once you add in the buying fees etc).

I can see myself returning before too long!

An excellent tour
aug. 2021 • Par
We really enjoyed our visit to Glenfarclas. Our tour guide, Mathew, gave us lots of information throughout our tour. He welcomed and answered any questions we had, and took us through the whole process throughout our tour.

We then had the opportunity to try the 12 year and 15 year Whisky’s. They even gave us some to take home for the person who was driving.

I would definitely recommend this if you are visiting the area.

Brilliant distillery tour
sep. 2021 • Par
The distillery tour was fantastic. Steve, our guide, took us through the whole process, getting us up close, and his passion and sense of humour were a winning combination. We spent more than an hour touring the family-owned site, with Steve introducing us to everyone from the distillery manager to the gardener. We also tasted a 10yr and 15yr, all for the price of a donation to charity. For lunch afterward, the Copper Dog at nearby Abelour was very good.
