sectretstills_icon_small.jpg  A WARM WELCOME TO SECRET STILLS

From our base in Oban, on the west coast of Scotland, we are well placed to reach some of Scotland's 'Secret Stills'. Distilleries that are slightly off the beaten track and therefore often overlooked by visitors to the area.

Some of our local distilleries are old, very old. Some are brand new, bringing new ideas and new philosophies to the alchemy of distilling and to the craft of producing our uisge-beatha, The Water of Life. This diverse approach ensures a huge variety of flavours, aromas and colours for you to immerse your senses.

Our mission is to deliver a bespoke and enriched experience for our clients by tailoring our private tours to your wishes. Working with you, we will create an exclusive itinerary that suits both your taste and your imagination.  We are totally flexible in our itineraries and they are geared around you and your visit. We will pick you up from your accommodation, travel to areas rarely discovered by visitors and visit some of the most interesting producers the area has to offer.

All of our private tours are conducted by senior staff at each distillery so you can be assured of an interesting and knowledgeable insight into their own unique approach and a world apart from the 'standard' distillery tour. It is likely that you will already have an understanding of whisky and its production. Our aim is to augment and broaden your knowledge in a relaxed, yet exclusive atmosphere.

We have partnered with several local companies to make your private tour unforgettable. Whether it be a continued and more diverse tasting experience by a log fire in a the Grand Hall of a 17th Century Castle, an evening of fine dining with a whisky paired menu to round off the day or a seafood feast, afloat in Oban Bay, we will strive to make your private tour memorable, as well as educational.
