Stunning Achitecture and Good Bar by Al

Tour was unavailale although we were happy to explore building and taste a few drams in the mezzanine bar. Good service and world class architecture.

Out of the Ordinary by Julia M

We booked a table in the restaurant expecting a nice lunch, but we were both amazed by the Michelin standard meal that we enjoyed. It was exquisite and brimming with flavour. After our meal we went up to the bar and enjoyed one of the tasting flights, and a delicious non alcoholic cocktail for the driver. Our lunch became an afternoon experience. Highly recommended for something out of the ordinary.

Fantastic Visit and a Great Day Spent Here Learning So Much. by KulHKJ

From the initial welcome from Lindsay and meeting Stuart the general manager we were so well treated. Matthew offered great service in the brasserie and bar. We had booked the masters tour and had a fantastic five course meal paired with wines. Lindsay took us around on a very informative tour at a calm and gentle pace. Nothing was a problem and I can only highly commend the service and quality on this tour. I was able to purchase some special bottles that I had recently missed out on. A great big thank you to the team at The Macallan and hope to revisit health allowing.
