Tour & Tasting

Our distillery has over 150 years of history that we’ll show you on one of our tours. Our selection of antiques that we’ve collected from the Well’s history are on display. Your tour guide will tell you the history behind them and how Thornton and the Well came to be. You’ll descend into the limestone well that feeds the distillery its water and learn the importance of the rock. We’ll then show you our stills and teach you about how distilled drinks are made. Afterwards enjoy a flight of our spirits in the Historic Grain Hall Bar.
