The Benromach and Red Door Gin visitor experiences will be open again from Monday 14 March after a period of closure during the Covid19 pandemic.

Visitors are welcome for distillery tours and tastings, or to discover a range of whiskies for sale including two special distillery exclusives and a new collection of Benromach merchandise.

As a VisitScotland Five Star visitor attraction, tours at Benromach (Monday-Saturday) will offer groups of up to eight people the chance to enjoy a Classic (£10), Contrast (£25) or Heritage (£75) experience – each with tutorials on the rich history of Benromach Distillery and a chance to taste a few special drams.

Gin fans can also book a Red Door Gin tour and tasting on-site where a one-hour experience (Tuesday-Saturday) will bring the distillation process to life while introducing guests to “Peggy”, the small copper pot still where every batch of Red Door Gin is carefully handmade by the on-site team.

After learning about botanicals and distillation, visitors can make their way to the Red Door Gin bar to sample the perfect Red Door G&T or signature cocktail.

Susan Colville, Brand Home Manager at Benromach and Whisky Icons Awards’ Visitor Attraction Manager of the Year, said: “The entire team has been looking forward to this day for months and we can’t wait to welcome visitors back to Benromach and Red Door Gin.

"The tours that helped make us a VisitScotland Five Star Visitor Attraction are unchanged, other than smaller numbers, but guests who have been before will notice that we’ve updated the visitor experience space with an even better shop and tasting area.

“Work hasn’t stopped at Benromach and Red Door Gin over the past two years, with each distillery continuing to produce our award-winning single malt and handmade Highland gin.
