5 Star Award for The A. D. Rattray Whisky Experience 

The exceptional service offered by the team at the A. D. Rattray Whisky Experience & Shop has been recognised by Visit Scotland when they recently awarded it 5 stars. This is a clear reflection of the hard work and commitment of Manager, Raphael Marinoni, and Tasting Host, Emma Handsley, to provide visitors with an outstanding experience.

In their report, Visit Scotland noted the high quality of this visitor attraction, adding, “ …the staff are the really essential element here, and both Raphael and Emma displayed the pro-activity, friendliness and product knowledge we would expect at a 5-star level”.  Tim Morrison, the owner of the premises, praised their dedication and congratulated them both on this achievement.

The A. D. Rattray Whisky Experience opened in 2011 in the old village school in Kirkoswald, South Ayrshire, the iconic building with its distillery-style pagoda roof makes the ideal setting to experience everything about Scotland’s national drink. Inside, visitors can explore, nose and taste whisky from barley to bottle including experiencing a traditional dunnage warehouse where they can fill and label their own bottle from a choice of casks. No visit would be complete without making use of the private tasting room to taste a selection of exceptional whiskies followed by a browse in the well-stocked independent whisky shop.


A. D. Rattray was founded in 1868 and has a reputation for their extensive knowledge and expertise in the whisky industry. They are best known for their Stronachie and Cask Islay brands and a range of top quality single cask bottlings, the A. D. Rattray Cask Collection.
