Opening Hours 

UPDATES! From tomorrow (Tuesday 10th November) our Lagg Distillery Visitor Centre will be temporarily closed to the public due to the ever changing circumstances on the Isle of Arran in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our distillery shop is open 7 days a week from 10.00 to 17.30 offering a wide selection of whiskies and gifts. Payment must be by credit or debit card and, of course, face coverings must be worn within the building. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you but you may have to be patient and prepared to queue for a short time, as we will have to limit the number of people in the building at any one time. 


The Kilmory Café is also open for hot drinks and cakes - 10am-12pm - and lite lunches -12pm–4pm.  Here is our Kilmory Cafe Summer Menu 2020 for you to see what treats we have for you! Please bear in mind that until 25th October we are unable to serve alcohol in Kilmory Cafe due to tightened restrictions in Scotland.

Kilmory Cafe Summer Menu 2020

There are a few things to bear in mind:

- Tables must be booked in advance by calling or emailing the Distillery, even if only coming for teas and coffees.

- No sit in café bookings for more than a group of 6 from two family groups unless with children age 11 and under. 

- Track and trace policy applies and someone will ask you to provide a few details.

- Face coverings must be worn at all times when you are away from your table.

- 2 tables will be available every 15mins, and obviously tables are subject to availability.

- Tables have 1 hour allocated to their booking.

- Table service is in place and diners are kindly asked to remain seated unless visiting the restrooms and settling bills.

- Last orders for food are at 3.30pm.


Our planned re-opening for Friday 9th October is now on hold due to tighter restrictions being put in place.  We hope to have a new opening date very soon.


At the moment we are not able to offer tours but we have tastings available daily.

Due to tightened restrictions in place until 25th October, the format of our tasting has changed temporarily.  Your guide will talk you through your samples in our Visitor Centre and then give you your drams to take away with you in our Driver's Dram bottles.  The cost of the tasting ticket has been reduced from £15 to £10 accordingly.

After 25th October, our tastings will take the following format. The Machrie Moor tasting is available to book everyday at 10.30am, 12.30pm or 3pm, cost is £15 per person and the session will focus only on peated whisky with a 4 dram selection of Distillery Exclusives and other delicious smoky treats. Spaces are limited to 6 (from a maximum of 2 households) and MUST be booked in advance. Email us at or call +44 (0) 1770 870565. 

Our sister Distillery at Lochranza is offering two tastings per day 7 days a week.  There is one at 12pm and one at 2.30pm. You can read more about our tastings available at Lochranza here. Thank you for your support and cooperation!

We are working very hard to provide distillery tours soon again, following the government guidelines and guaranteeing safety for customers and staff. There will be further updates soon, for any enquiry don't hesitate to get in touch.
