Edinburgh's Best and Most Fun Whisky Experience. You'll become a one hour whisky expert!
354 Castlehill Royal Mile Edinburgh EH1 2NE 0131 220 0441
This is a brilliant way to learn about whisky whether you are a lover of the water of life or not. Hop aboard a whisky barrel for a ride through a replica distillery and watch whisky production come alive. It may be fun, but you do also learn a lot along the way and get the chance to ogle the world’s largest private collection of whisky. They won’t put a price on it. You probably couldn’t. Afterwards you can sample some whisky cocktails at their bar or enjoy superb Modern Scottish cuisine at their Amber restaurant. Then, of course, there is their well-stocked whisky shop, with some colourful souvenirs and rare bottlings.
No trip to Scotland would be complete without a ‘wee dram’ of Scotch Whisky, and here at The Scotch Whisky Experience on The Royal Mile, we offer you the chance to learn as well as taste. In one hour, our Silver tour promises to teach you about whisky production, maturation, the four main regions of whisky, and the art of whisky blending –and that’s before you’ve even tasted a drop! The emphasis here is on engagement and fun, with a swirling, bubbling barrel ride, a multi-media presentation, and the highlight, a whisky tasting within the spectacular golden glow of nearly 4000 bottles of scotch, comprising The World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky. We represent 90% of the whisky industry, and we feel our even-handed approach to different distilleries and regions makes us an ideal ‘first stop’ on any journey of whisky discovery.
