Please note that Annandale Distillery is a historic site which dates back to 1836. The courtyard is cobbled. We are a working distillery and as such a section of the distillery tour is not accessible to disabled visitors. The Still Room, housing the mash tun, washbacks and wash/spirit stills is where mashing, fermentation and distillation takes place. The Still Room is situated on the first floor of the building and is only accessible by a stairway. The flooring in the Still Room is of a grid structure. We are currently working on a film screening option for disabled visitors in order to help guests with disabilities make the most of their visit.
Children are permitted on distillery tours, but must be accompanied and closely supervised by an adult. Please note during busy periods Annandale Distillery management reserves the right to limit the number of children to 2 per tour. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
Due to the historic nature of the Distillery, there are uneven floors throughout the grounds and the building. In production areas, there is grated flooring which makes it unsuitable for heeled shoes. We advise that all visitors wear appropriate footwear when visiting the distillery.
