Old Pulteney Distillery

Awarded World Whisky of the Year for their 21-year old (2012), Old Pulteney Distillery is a must see to truly embrace the essence of Wick. Having thrived during Wick’s herring glory, Old Pulteney was one of the 50 pubs that were involved in serving 500 gallons of Whisky a day!

Wolfburn Distillery

With whisky roots dating back to 1821, the Wolfburn Distillery embraced the former glory of Thurso’s whisky. Established in 2012, Wolfburn’s modern approach to distilling Single Malt Whisky is an intriguing addition to visit while wandering through nearby town Thurso.

Dunnet Bay Distillery

For all those Gin lovers out there, be sure to pass through Dunnet Bay Distillery – makers of the delicious Rock Rose Gin!

John O Groats Brewery

Although tours of this artisan brewery are not available at the moment, we sometimes stock John O Groats Brewery‘s small batch craft ales in our bar. Plus, they are currently working on creating a visitor centre, where you can learn more about the brewing process.
