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 amazing places that you probably wouldn’t find in a common tourist guide.

The first 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 bar, we start with something nice and easy to drink to prepare your palate for what is coming afterwards.

The second stop we will be visiting a very stylish cocktail bar in Edinburgh’s New Town. Although this bar is not exclusive for whisky, their selection is outstanding! Here we are going to discover one of the very few distilleries in Campbeltown. A whisky region that almost died a century ago. A region that used to be the capital of whisky production for years. Sadly, today, there are only three distilleries left that we are going to discover and taste during the walking tour through this fantastic city.

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 flavour notes 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.
