Gin Tours

A relaxation of laws has allowed the explosion of small craft gin distillers in Scotland over the last few years.  Many offer tours and sampling. I was recently at Eden Mill outside St Andrews and really enjoyed the tour which was great value - the £10 entrance included 4 generous gins with different mixers! Hoping to try a few other local ones such as Kingsbarns, Lindores and Gin Bothy soon. Any other suggestions from other parts of the country?

    Edinburgh is the obvious one, just under Ghillie Dhu (and the only one in my list that has varietals, the others just produce the base product but at exceptionally high quality). Isle of Harris distillery does a tour which has gin samplings (their gin is one of the very best in the country) but they'll eventually be a whisky producer. In a similar vein, Briuchladdich on Islay is a whisky distillery but the Botanist is such an excellent gin brand that they keep healthy stocks (and samples) in distillery.
