The famous Talisker Distillery opens a brand new visitor center after a one million pound restoration. The center was opened right in time for the Easter holidays and the start of the new tourist season. Since Talisker is the only distillery on the island Skye, it is an important tourist attraction with over 60,000 visitors last year. This new center offers the opportunity to tell the story and show the heritage of Talisker whisky. Not only the tourism sector benefits from this investment, the local economy is also blooming. According to the director Mark Lochhead who opened the center, the investment has been a success so far: “Talisker is going from strength to strength as a brand and the distillery is growing in popularity with people coming from all over the world to visit the home of our iconic single malt.” Next to a visitor center, the distillery also offers a nice view on the warehouses and new tasting rooms.
