Professor David Thomson will be conducting a personal tour of Annandale Distillery on the 28th of April 2018 1pm.
Liquid nirvana in my two decades of trying new make spirit and whisky, this tour was perfection. Thanks to David and Teresa – wonderful hosts.
A unique opportunity to meet the man behind the rebirth of Annandale Distillery. Learn about the archaeologist, the water diviner, the engineers, the architect and all the other ‘characters’ involved in the incredible project that saw Annandale awaken from a century long slumber.
In this fascinating tour Professor David Thomson will relate the whole story from June 2006 to the present day. And placed in the historical context he will reveal the identities of the two iconic Roberts who have become the distillery’s Man o’Words and Man o’Sword.
This special distillery tour with the owner Professor David Thomson was a 60th birthday present from my brother-in-law. It was excellent. It lasted 3 hours and I was totally engrossed from start to finish. Professor Thomson is very knowledgeable and is also a lecturer, so he was able to explain everything in a very clear way, making it accessible to all.
David may even recite some of Burn’s poetry, and the tour will include the exclusive opportunity to taste some of Annandale Distillery’s Maturing Spirit straight from the cask.
Tours run for approximately 2.5 hours with limited spaces available.
Last Saturday I had an incredible tour of Annandale Distillery. The owners’ Professor David Thomson and his wife Teresa are creating something remarkable. On tour we tried new make spirit from 3-14 months. You heard it here first – Annandale Distillery will win awards.
Recently visited this wonderfully restored distillery and was lucky enough to get a place on the tour by owner Professor David Thomson. His passion comes across in the restoration and the utilisation of the existing buildings to bring this distillery back to life.
