Scotch Whisky

The Whisky Coast

The town of Oban grew up around its distillery, so Oban single malt is popular. But you can also sample whiskies from the 20 world-class distilleries located along The Whisky Coast. Discover and enjoy Scotland's national drink, history and culture in one sitting.

Scottish Gins

Need some gin-spiration?

We serve global bestsellers – Hendricks, Gordon's and Tanqueray, but did you know that that over 70 percent of gin made in the UK is actually produced in Scotland, with over 50 brands.

Craft Beers

We've got it down to a Fyne 'T'

Oban is the gateway to some great local beer, so make sure and pop in to sample Innis & Gunn, Fyne Ales or Scotland's most popular, Tennent's lager.
