Unfortunately, due to the escalating situation in respect of mitigating against Covid-19, we have been forced to take the decision to suspend tours, events and experiences at Holyrood Distillery. 

All tours will cease at the end of the day on Tuesday 17th March, until further notice.


At this time Holyrood Distillery is closed until further notice. This is due to the escalating situation relating to Covid-19 / Coronavirus.
