Edinburgh, a city full of history, culture, and the perfect place to learn everything about the Scottish national drink and taste some of the best single malts. Whisky tasting Edinburgh and the New Town’s whisky tour is an opportunity to walk away from the crowded city centre while enjoying good quality scotch through four hidden whisky venues that only locals know. Although you may find some fantastic venues in the old town, this part of the city has really cool places that you probably wouldn’t find in a common tourist guide.

The first stop of this journey is at the famous Royal Mile Whiskies, a whisky shop full of fantastic whiskies and one of the most respected whisky merchants in the world, winning Whisky Magazine’s Retailer of the year in several occasions. A great place to start a journey full of good whisky and amazing stories.

The second stop is in a hidden bar right in the heart of Edinburgh famous for its great variety of world whiskies and its Victorian architecture. No doubt one of the coolest bar within the whole city. In this place, you are going to have a two and a half distilled whisky from Campbeltown, which is very rare and uncommon even here in Scotland.

The third venue is a shadowy bar right in the middle of a very mysterious street. In this place, you’re able to have one of the most traditional and well-known whiskies from the Speyside region, so prepare your palate to feel lots of honey, vanilla, caramel, and cinnamon notes. Quite interesting for a whisky, isn’t it?

Finally, let us take you to one of the most important whisky institutions in the city of Edinburgh with more than 400 bottles. In here you will taste one of the peaty monsters from Islay while discovering some quirky stories of the drink in other parts of the world.

Please, bring your confirmation email on your phone or tablet, comfortable walking shoes, and weather appropriate clothing.
