You will have the opportunity to take short guided tours of the distillery and there will be stalls and our famous whisky bar where you can try some rare expressions by the dram. There will also be food stalls where you can try some of our delicious local produce -the burgers are legendary! New this year, we will be offering hourly mini tastings in our Tasting Bar for those who don’t want to take a full masterclass.

The Mini Tastings in the Tasting Bar are hourly and are £15 per person.

Of course, the music will also play a major part of the day and we will be hosting some brilliant bands. During the day on Saturday we will have a line-up of talented musicians from Arran and all over Scotland, in a relaxed and informal environment, and Distillery Manager James MacTaggart will be back again this year with his own band ‚James and The Staves‘ featuring talented local musicians Andy McCallum, Robin Fisher, Jon Hollingworth and indeed our own Sales Manager Andy Bell who is pretty handy on the guitar himself.
