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 bars 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 in a bar where the whisky enjoyment is more focused on flavour profile and region rather than age or brand. In this place, you’re able to find very rare and unique bottles from a wide range of single cask whiskies.

The second stop is in a place famous for its great variety of cocktails and a very comfy atmosphere. In this bar, you are going to have a two and a half distilled whisky from Campbeltown, which is a very rare and very uncommon within the industry.

The third venue is a shadowy bar right in the middle of a very busy 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 taste one of the peaty monsters from Islay while discovering some quirky stories of the drink in other parts of the world.
