Distillery Tours

Join us on a pre-booked tour from Monday to Friday - call us on 01450 374 330 to arrange your visit

Visit our award-winning home


Visit our distillery in the heart of Hawick and tour this award-winning conversion of the former Victorian electrical works buildings.

Learn how we distil malt spirit for our Single Malt Scotch Whisky, William Kerr’s Borders Gin, and Puffing Billy Steam Vodka.

A 5* VisitScotland attraction, with 5* ratings on TripAdvisor.

We are open Monday to Friday for pre-booked tours on the following basis:

– Tours must be booked at least a day in advance, by phone, on 01450 374 330. We cannot accept any walk-in visitors for tours (although you’re welcome to come in and browse our shop)

– Tour parties must all be from a single household or single “social bubble”

– Tour bookings will only be taken for a minimum of 4 people, and a maximum of 6. (Any fewer than 4 and it becomes uneconomic for us to stop work to show you round. Any more than 6 and we wouldn’t be able to ensure 2m distancing and the safety of our team)

– For the safety of our team, all tour visitors will be required to wear a mask throughout the tour. A new disposable mask will be provided for any visitor who doesn’t have their own

– In line with Scottish Government guidance, all visitors must provide contact details for the purposes of Track & Trace. These details will be securely disposed of after 4 weeks

– Tours will run 10h00, 11h30, 13h00, 14h30, 16h00 – Monday to Friday

We have reviewed our cleaning cycle, will have hand sanitiser stations throughout the tour, and will continue to clean the glassware and bar equipment used during tastings to the highest hygiene standards.

As we all become accustomed to “the new normal”, we will regularly review our operating practices to ensure the safety and continued good health of both our team and our visitors. Our website will always have the most up-to-date information.

If you would like to join us for a tour of our wonderful distillery, or have any questions, please give us a call on 01450 374 330 between 10am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Our online shop is always open, selling our spirits and a selection of gifts.

Share our passion


You’ll be guided round by the people who make our spirit, through our mashing, fermentation and distillation halls, and finishing with a dram in the distillery bar.

Unlike at many other distilleries, you may take photographs throughout the tour.

The distillery has an excellent shop with a selected range of spirits, local produce, and gifts.

Tours are £12 and last 45 minutes. Pre-booked tours depart 10h00, 11h30, 13h00, 14h30, 16h00 – Monday to Friday.
