Whisky Tasting

Whether you are staying at the hotel, popping in to the bar or restaurant or just passing with friends why not organise a whisky tasting session at The Ferry Inn.

We have a fine selection of bottles, from single cask editions to rarer vintages, to pour some delightfully tasty drams from. Get in touch and let us know what you would like to try, tie it in with an after meal wind down. Always good fun with humour and local anecdotes and (maybe) most importantly educational.
