Our Whisky selection has something for all palates, Speyside, Lowland, Island, just ask the team for what’s on the shelf. Beer, lager and wine are plentiful with craft beer, red, white and rose wine hand selected by our manager on the menu.

Whisky Tasting

The Boat isn’t just a country inn, hotel, bar and restaurant. We offer experiences to make your stay even more enjoyable. Book our whisky and chocolate tasting, where you will be guided through four different expressions of whisky. At the end of the tasting, you’ll know which expressions you enjoy and be able to choose from hundreads of whiskies available behind our well-stocked bar. You’ll experience a pre-selected flight of malt whisky and Scottish handmade chocolate that complement each other perfectly. All for £70 for two people.
