Oban distillery ( (listen) OH-bən; Scottish Gaelic: Taigh-stail an Òbain) is a whisky distillery in the Scottish west coast port of Oban. Established in 1794, it was built before the town of the same name, which sprung up later in the surrounding craggy harbour.

Bill the tour guide did an amazing job of explaining the whiskey making process. The price of the ticket is a bargain if you consider how many extras it covers as well. Overall it is definitely worth a visit if you’re into alcohol (and who wouldn’t be...) Drink responsibly though!
Definitely a distillery worth a visit. Good as distillery tours go, I still have my Oban glasses. There’s a chance to taste some cask goodies too.
Make sure you are staying local as you can't drink and drive.... As there are some really great whisky cocktails to be had. Small cafe and mini Museum here as well as the shop. You can get tours but make sure you book before hand so that you get a spot and know the times.
Loved the tour, fairly priced at 10£ you get two whiskey taster (8 years available only here and the normal 14 year) , a 5£ off coupon and a souvenir glass. Staff is friendly and informative. 1h well spent!
Super value tour of the distillery guided by the witty and knowledgeable Bill. Very informative and a chance to taste the Whisky at the end of the tour. Everyone got complimentary glass as a momento. We'll worth £10😁
Great tour in an active distillery. The tour guide Jim was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Well worth the £10, with a free glass and two small samples included.
We stopped here for the tour and it was well worth the time. They did a very good job of giving us the history of Oban and how it is a major part of the town. The 'art' of making good scotch was described in detail and we found to be educational. They had a tasting at the end which was very enjoyable.
Much nicer than the Talisker experience but is the shadow of a corporate owner too prominent?
We really enjoyed the Oban whisky - and the tour master, Kyle, was the very best! He was informative, funny, engaging. Best tour guide of all the many places and distilleries we went to! I'd drink a wee dram of Oban with Kyle any day!
The tour was really informative and also great value, we got 2 tastings included as part of our tour. Oban in delicious and even my non whisky drinking wife has been converted!
Staff seemed quite busy and kids tending the bar more interested in chatting amongst themselves than engaging with customers. Nice building and displays but their product wasn't for me. Several predetermined flights to choose from covering different flavor profiles.
We took the tour on a rainy day and were thoroughly entertained! Harry our tour guide was very informative and in good humour. The tour is well paced and well worth doing!
29/05/18 A really good tour and tour guide, Ann. Great value for money, £10 includes tour, 2 drams, an engraved glass and a £5 off voucher. There us also a bar upstairs you can try of the range of malts. They're also part of "Friends of classic malts", so you can get your book stamped along with the other distilleries you've visited
We visited the Oban Distillery and joined the first tour of the day. Our tour guide Harry was very friendly and obviously had great fun showing us around. In fact, Oban was one of only a few distilleries where we could actually see the distillers working at the spirit safe from up close. The staff was also very friendly. Our guide took his time to answer questions and to show us the different steps in the process of Whisky making. At the end of our tour, we were offered to drams of Oban 14 and Oban Little Bay. Since we still had to drive, Harry gave us the whisky in a take away cup. A great and recommendable tour well worth the £10!
We’ve been to a few distilleries during our Scotland trip but saved going on a tour for Oban, and we were not disappointed! The education was fascinating and because it’s a relatively small distillery, the tour was short and sweet (perfect for my impatient family haha). If you have any interest learning about how Scotch Whisky is made, save your distillery tour for Oban!! (Sadly they don’t let you take pictures during the tour, I just have to hope the tasting after the tour doesn’t erase my memory of it!)
