Established in 1825, Ben Nevis Distillery is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland.


The distillery is nestled at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which has a summit elevation of 4406 feet above sea level. This imposing mountain provides an impressive background to a traditional Scottish craft.

Incorporated within Ben Nevis Distillery is The Warehouse No.7 Visitor Centre, built into an old warehouse dating from 1862 and former bottling hall, which still retains some of its original features. You will encounter the mythical giant Hector McDram who will reveal the Legend of the Nevis Dew in a specially commissioned audio visual presentation.

After your experience with Hector, a conducted tour of the production areas by a trained guide concludes with a complementary tasting.

After your tour around the distillery why not relax with a refreshment or if you are hungry, try some of the delicious home cooking in the coffee shop and restaurant. It will be an unforgettable treat.
