Edinburgh’s whisky tour: A tour through the whisky culture in the capital city

Edinburgh, a city full of history, culture, and the perfect place to learn everything about the Scottish national drink. The world-famous single malt whisky. Our Edinburgh’s whisky tour across the new town is an opportunity to walk away from the crowded city centre while enjoying good quality scotch through four hidden whisky venues along the way. Although you may find some fantastic whisky bars in the old town, this part of the city has amazing places that you probably wouldn’t find in a common tourist guide.

About the whisky tour

Edinburgh-Whisky-Tour

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. Today, there are only three distilleries left and we are going to explore them all while tasting one of the best Campbeltown whiskies you can find in town.

The third venue is a shadowy bar right in the middle of a very mysterious street. In this whisky bar, you will have the chance to drink 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 tasting 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 and other curious facts about Scotch and whiskies from around the world.
