The new Distillery Tour Times Leaflet for 2014 is available as PDF in the download section of the Islay Blog. The leaflet consists of two pages and provides information about the Jura and Islay Malt Whisky distilleries: Their visitor centre/shop opening hours, the tour times, special tours, phone and fax numbers, email addresses and other important information. It is therefore recommended to take a copy with you when you visit Islay and/or Jura. This leaflet is also available in the Tourist Information Office and other places on Islay.
As in recent years, this year sees another increase in the number of special tours and tour times and the standard leaflet size has almost become too small to hold all the information. There are several distilleries offering walks to their water sources, extended tastings, manager tours and craftman's tours which give you a fascinating view of parts of the distillery which are usually not accessible during a regular tour. There is something for every whisky lover. One word of advice though, always book your tours, both regular and special, in advance to prevent disappointment.
