Booking for tours is advisable and tastings are to be booked an hour in advance.
There will be a different tour and tasting programmes during the Feis Ile (26th May – 3rd June) and these will be advertised separately.
As Caol Ila is a working distillery it is possible we may have to cancel tours due to unavoidable maintenance breaks. We advise that you always contact the distillery or check our website before your visit to avoid disappointment.
Our scheduled maintenance period is usually towards the end of September into October (actual dates will be available closer to the time). During that time, we cannot offer tours around the distillery, but tastings will be available.
For health & safety reasons, children under 8 years old are not permitted in the production areas of the distillery.
Disabled persons including those with guide dogs and other assistance dogs are welcome at our 12 distillery visitor centres.
We will make reasonable adjustments to the distillery visitor tour that we offer at each visitor centre to ensure that disabled persons including those with guide dogs or other assistance dogs have a positive visitor experience and, above all else, remain safe.
The unique layout of each distillery location and visitor centre means that the reasonable adjustments we make at each distillery may vary.
If you are a guide dog assisted person we ask you to book your visit in advance highlighting your specific requirements so that we can endeavour to deliver a positive visitor experience.
