It started in 1794 and it's one of the smallest in Scotland. We pay for a guided tour and it was awesome. He explained how they make whisky, which we never knew before. And it's a long process. Notice I'm saying whisky, not whiskey, since we are in Scotland. Especially since they let it age for 14 years!! We went through the whole process ...
