The 1798 Experience

Immerse yourself in our Viking world and spend a day as a fully-fledged distillery worker. Starting with an 8.00am briefing from Distillery Manager, Marie Stanton, you’ll spend the morning firing up the kilns and experiencing the effort that goes into turning our malt by hand. Then, after a traditional Orcadian lunch, we’ll spirit you away to Hobbister Moor where you’ll get some Orkney peat under your fingernails!

During the afternoon, you’ll visit some Orkney landmarks and see how the island weather impacts on our whisky. Then, as evening falls, it’s time to relax and unwind in front of the open fire in the Eunson Room over a sumptuous dinner and tutored tasting of some of our finest whiskies.

As a souvenir of your visit (and a reward for your labours!) you’ll receive a sample bottle of whisky hand-filled straight from the cask as well as an exclusive single cask bottling (subject to availability).
