Whisky distilleries in and around St Andrews

If you are planning a visit to Fife and you are also a whisky connoisseur then read on. No Scottish break is complete without a visit to a whisky distillery! Not sure where to start? Then find out below with our guide to whisky distilleries in St Andrews and the surrounding area…

St Andrews whisky distilleries

Located right in the heart of St Andrews, Eden Mill is Scotland’s only distillery and brewery in one. This distillery is big on small, in a good way. Their limited productions of whisky make it all that rarer and more sought after by whisky lovers. They emphasise creativity and tinkering in their whiskies, rather than mass production of the same old flavour. This distillery started out with craft beer and stays true to its roots as it still makes refreshing, small-batch beer.

Around a 15-minute drive from St Andrews town centre, Kingsbarns Distillery is not only the host to fruity and floral, Fife-grown whisky, but it is also home to the strikingly intricate dovecot which has been described as a “miniature fortified tower.”

Perthshire whisky distilleries

In nearby Perthshire, you’ll find Scotland’s smallest traditional distillery. Edradour Distillery is home to twenty-five unique flavours of Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Visitors will actually be able to witness the whisky being made first-hand and the types of whisky here range from Ballechin Heavily Peated to Wine Finishes, so there is something for everyone.

Even King George IV couldn’t resist a beer from this location, when he took a pit stop en route to his coronation to purchase a beer from the local brewery. In 1949, the remaining breweries were transformed into distilleries and thus Tullibardine Distillery was born. It currently only produces 6 whiskies so you can be assured that it is only the finest drinks that make it out for consumption.
