Meet the man behind the rebirth of Annandale Distillery. In this fascinating tour David Thomson will relate the whole story from June 2006 until present. You’ll learn about the archaeologists, the water diviner, the engineers, the architect and all the other ‘characters’ involved in the project. This will be placed in a historical context that mentions King Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns (the two RBs of Annandale). He may even recite some of Burns’ poetry! The tour finishes with a dram or two of Rascally Liquor©; Annandale Distillery’s new-make malt spirit.Enquire

Wheelchair Users

Please note that Annandale Distillery is a historic site which dates back to 1836. The courtyard is cobbled. We are a working distillery and as such a section of the distillery tour is not accessible to disabled visitors. The Still Room, housing the mash tun, washbacks and wash/spirit stills is where mashing, fermentation and distillation takes place. The Still Room is situated on the first floor of the building and is only accessible by a stairway. The flooring in the Still Room is of a grid structure. We are currently working on a film screening option for disabled visitors in order to help guests with disabilities make the most of their visit.

Children

Children are permitted on distillery tours, but must be accompanied and closely supervised by an adult. Please note during busy periods Annandale Distillery management reserves the right to limit the number of children to 2 per tour. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.

Footwear

Due to the historic nature of the Distillery, there are uneven floors throughout the grounds and the building. In production areas, there is grated flooring which makes it unsuitable for heeled shoes. We advise that all visitors wear appropriate footwear when visiting the distillery.
