The new Islay and Jura Distillery Tour Leaflet for 2018 has been published and is now available as download and for viewing online from all the Distillery Pages on Islay Info. The Distillery leaflet is typically the thing you need when you are doing distillery tours on Islay and Jura as it has all information about:
- Opening Hours of all the distilleries on Islay and Jura
- An Overview of the Distillery & Special Tours
- Info on prices of Tours and Tastings
- A section with general info on public transport and restaurants
With this in your pocket, or on your tablet of smartphone, you always know where to get a dram, how to come home if you had too many, where to get that espresso if you need it and where to go if you are hungry. Continue reading...
Same as in recent years there is an ongoing trend to increase the number of special tours. Most distilleries now offer special warehouse tours, premium tastings, manager's tours, walks to water sources and other variations on the standard and extended tour. All great opportunities to see more of the distillery and its people than with the regular tours, which are already great.
Another word of advice is to always try and book your tours in advance, both regular and special, to prevent disappointment. At busier times even the regular tours can easily be fully booked for the entire day! And speaking about booking, during busier times you might want to make a reservation for a restaurant as well.
The Leaflet can be downloaded here. Paper copies are available in the Tourist Info Office in Bowmore, distilleries and other places on the island.
