COVID Health & Safety Infographic 2021A few of our frequently asked questions:

Do I have to wear a mask?  At the moment government guidance asks you to wear a mask in retail areas so you will need to bring a mask and wear one in our whisky shop.  Our currently policy to minimise risk requires you to wear a mask on tour with the exception of the point that you are drinking whisky.  Please see our Amber Restaurant page for health and safety measures within the restaurant.

How does toilet hygiene work?  Only one family unit at a time in the whole toilet unit, sanitisers, and enhanced daily cleaning.

Do I have to pre-book? Tours are available to book online, so get there quick as we have a limited capacity to ensure that everyone is comfortably distanced.
