Guided Brewery and Distillery Tour:
This tour begins in the tasting room and flows the way the spirits go, past the grist mill where you can taste some of the various strains of malted & un- malted barley, or other cereals that Caledonian as a craft brewer as well as a distiller get to play and experiment with. Onward into the heart of the Brew & Still house through the smells of the mash tun & wash backs, past the gleaming swan necked Stills and then up into the warehouse and bottling hall before returning back to the visitor’s centre for a wee dram from one of the whiskies in the Macaloney Cask Selection series.

Distillery Tour with Chocolate and Whisky Tasting:
This tour and tasting introduces you to the brewing and distilling process. It is an immersive experience as you get to touch, feel and above all, sample whisky and beer products.
