Visit Talisker Distillery

The oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins. This alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt is so easy to enjoy, and like Skye itself, so hard to leave.

Talisker Distillery is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport in the village of Carbost, on the beautiful Minginish Peninsula, with dramatic views of the Black Cuillin. Come and visit us for a tour and taste of our award winning Talisker 10 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, see our 5 Copper Pot Stills and the traditional worm tubs that make our Talisker so unique. Take a look in the Warehouse at our oak casks where the Angels Share is lost to evaporation during the maturation process.

Skye offers so much to all of its visitors, whether you want to come and relax in some of Scotland’s top class restaurants and accommodation, Kinloch Lodge or The Three Chimneys or for the more energetic visitor, walking and climbing in the Cuillins or The Quirang in Trotternish. Travel from Fort William to Mallaig and enjoy a sail on a CalMac ferry to Armadale and stop off at Armadale Castle in Sleat or drive through Kintail, passing the iconic Eilean Donan Castle, to Kyle and over the Skye Bridge. After visiting Talisker why not take a drive to the Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle or Dunvegan Castle, the seat of the Clan MacLeod.

Wildlife and scenery are spectacular no matter what the weather. Sea eagles, dolphins, whales and otters are all seen regularly with the Coral Beaches, Talisker Bay and Neist Point being some of the best places to spot them.

During our busier summer months there can be a wait for tour availability on arrival at the visitor centre, as our tour sizes are limited, so advanced booking is advised if you are on a tight time schedule or if you want to tour at a specific time.
