Talisker Distillery is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport, against the views of the Cuillins. Visit the distillery to know and take sips of its alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt whisky. The distillery operates five stills; two wash stills and three spirit stills. All the stills use worm tubs (condensing coils) rather than a modern condenser, which are believed to give the whisky a "fuller" flavor.

Talisker Distillery Reviews & Ratings
Stopped by the visitor center despite the distillery/tour being closed due to the quiet month. Very worthwhile! Informative, friendly and very helpful staff inside to help talk you through the various bottles they offer. Delicious! Tastings were between 4.50-7 pounds for most of the bottles you can try. They also had a chocolate ganache hot drink on offer.
Visited the distillery today and was very impressed by the distillery itself and the tour, which was brought to life by our guide, Nick. Having done a few distillery tours in the past, I thought I knew a lot about whisky making. However, Nick managed to provide further insight with his detailed knowledge and brought the whole process to life. A real treat for any whisky lover!
Tour is quite average. They do not do malting here, so it starts from milling. At the end, you do not get into the warehouse, but just glance through the glass wall. Nothing special as tour. Not many distillery have malting or bottling facility, but those will give a view of complete production. Tasting is only one dram, Storm. I know more generous distilleries. They don’t offer small bottle for drivers. What is special of visiting distillery is always distillery exclusive bottling. The triple matured distillery exclusive is sold at 90 pounds, but for my taste I’d rather go for Talisker 18 yo with the same amount of money. Which I can buy it online, and Ido. I think, you need to think two goals. One is to make Talisker fans more loyal. The other is to make people just accompanied Talisker lover. The goal of the distillery visitor centre shouldn’t be profitable on its own. It lacks special attraction to visit the distillery. My suggestion is making distillery exclusive more affordable and distinctive. Die hard drinker won’t buy a bottle for collection. It was said they plan to put the cask from which visitors can fill a bottle by themselves. Good idea. Hope not too expensive and cask type changes. If affordable, I expect frequent travellers would repeatedly come to snatch a bottle. For beginners, I think the value proposition of the bar is wrong. 25ml starts from 4-5 pounds for bottles selling at 40-50 pounds. 8 ponds for 18 yo and 24 pounds for 25 yo. which is a kind of bar price. No. I won’t try three or four to find my favourite. I’d rather suggest to make it five pounds for 4 of 15 ml or so so that we try many and buy one. I would also give discount coupons for their next purchase online for visitors buying a bottle. It plans to build a bar with a nice view upstairs. Sounds nice. However, we don’t come here to drink a lot as we drive. Bowmore have gorgeous bar but they are in town. I think they can improve marketing approach.
Tried the Talisker Tasting Tour. One of my best tasting experiences by far.
Great place to visit, it was so much fun. The staff are super friendly and they know their whiskey. The gift shop was lovely and getting the talisker pins at the end of the tour way lovely. Even the bar area was nice and it has the history of talisker written around the edge. Great visit!
