COVID - 19 Policy

This policy may be adapted as COVID guidelines change - amended 22/9/20

We are open for business and hope to see you at the distillery!

We are really looking forward to being able to welcome you to Tayport Distillery and offer you a fun place to visit when you are 'out and about'. 2020 has been a difficult time for many and we really hope you have all managed with as little pain as possible. As a small family business we had to adapt quickly with 'live' sessions and online markets. We are incredibly thankful for the support we have had. Kind messages and reviews have kept us smiling each day!

We are so excited to be opening our store at the distillery where you can meet with us and see what we do. We will ensure a safe visit. We have implemented COVID-19 restrictions with guidance from Tourism St Andrews, VisitScotland and the UK Government 'Good To Go' scheme. We are uploading our COVID-19 Policy online shortly, but our general guidance to customers is listed below:
  • Adhere to social distance markings on floor and signs around the facility. 
  • Wear a face-mask and use hand-sanitiser where available within the facility.
  • At present, we are adhering to the 'rule of six' - no more than six people from two households can gather inside or outside.
  • Respect other customers by adhering to the rules.

As the government adapts to the changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we will adapt with them. We are excited to see you soon!


Are we open for tours?

Yes, we are open!  As advised by Visit Scotland, you can still book your household onto organised tours - alongside other unconnected households.  Your booking should represent one household, follow 2 m physical distancing on tours and wear a face mask.

We have a few small changes to make our facilty safe and secure and will keep you updated via email, online, facebook and instagram! You can watch our COVID-19 Safe and Secure Journey there! 

If you have already booked a tour, thank you! You will recieve an update to our guidelines and precautions shortly before your tour with a form to fill out before you visit which takes max. 2-5mins. All will be explained in the email.
