Your perfect introduction to Scotch Whisky...
Discover Scotch whisky as you explore our unique Whisky Experience & Shop.
Let us guide you on your whisky journey, whether this is your first experience of Scotch or you already have a passion for Scotland's National drink.
You can learn everything about Scotch whisky including the history, how it's made and aged in casks and how to taste and enjoy your dram. Or simply take time to absorb the atmosphere of our venue, the beautifully converted village school.
Enjoy browsing the incredible selection of whiskies, gins, rums, liqueurs, accessories and gifts in our shop. As we are independent, you have the opportunity to taste whiskies from across Scotland and the world, including well-known distillery brands, lesser-known gems and our own award-winning brands.
Drop in anytime for a free informal visit or book a guided whisky or gin tasting to sample Scotland's finest spirits with a tasting host.
We're ready to welcome you and share our knowledge and passion for whisky.
Step inside our dimly lit Cask Room and experience the atmosphere of a traditional whisky warehouse. You can sample a single malt straight from a choice of two individual casks and fill a bottle yourself. Once filled, it is then dipped in wax to seal it and you will have the opportunity to add your own hand-written label, personalised with a name or message.
As only two or three hundred bottles of natural strength whisky comes from each of these single casks you can be sure you’re getting a bottle of something unusual and in very limited supply.
Whisky & Gin Tasting Room
Our Tasting Room is the perfect setting to relax and sample Scotland’s finest whiskies or gins.
During a tasting session you will have the exclusive use of our Tasting Room. A dedicated Tasting Host will guide you through the sampling of a stunning range of Scotch whiskies or Scottish gins as you sit around our beautiful antique table.
Tastings can be booked for individuals or groups of up to 20 people. The sessions consist of five samples and last for 60 to 90 minutes.
The whiskies and gins we use are often limited editions so the tasting selection changes on a regular basis. This means that you will always have different whiskies or gins to try, no matter how often you visit us!

A. D. Rattray has been a family business involved in the blending and maturation of Single Malt Scotch Whisky since 1868. The company’s horse-drawn carts, carrying cases of fine wine and spirits, were a familiar sight on Clydeside and in Central Glasgow during the late 1800s.
Today, the company Andrew Dewar Rattray founded is based on the West coast of Scotland and in the hands of the Morrison family whose name and reputation are steeped in whisky history.
As an independent whisky company A. D. Rattray now sources spirit and casks from all the traditional whisky regions of Scotland. The A. D. Rattray Cask Collection and award-winning brands, Stronachie, Cask Islay and Bank Note are exported throughout the world.
