When the gin pennant has been raised we will invite you to join us in our Tasting Room for our North Coast Stories with Tasting experience! Enter our re-imagined Tasting Room with its coastal theme and fabulous ‘Boat Shed’ booths to listen to Captain Joanne as she tells tales to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020. The tales will be accompanied with tasters of three of our spirits to sip and discover. Each Boat Shed will seat two persons from the same ‘bubble’ and is a safe distance from our other Boat Sheds.

£20 per Boat Shed. Each Boat Shed will seat two persons maximum.

We endeavour to make the distillery tour as enjoyable as possible for all of our visitors.  Download the Accessibility Guide for Dunnet Bay Distillery or Contact Us if you have any special requirements.

We love dogs and have a box of welcome treats and fresh water available for your four-legged friends. However, we are unable to welcome dogs other than Assistance Dogs into our Visitor Centre where our shop and Tasting Room are located as they are very small spaces. We do have a sheltered lead tether just beside the shop and our garden is available for leg stretching and a quick walk.
