A trip to Edinburgh wouldn’t be complete without a whisky tasting experience. Located on The Royal Mile next to Edinburgh Castle, this is the only attraction in the world to take you on a grand tour of Scotland’s five whisky producing regions.

With a fantastic guide throughout your experience, you’ll gain a perfect introduction to Scotch whisky and explore the glass and marble vault of one of the world’s largest collections of Scotch whisky. 

This fun and interactive experience will take you on a journey to all the whisky producing regions including Speyside, home of the floral and fruity malts, and Islay, where you’ll find smoky and peaty whiskies. What’s more, you’ll learn what goes into creating the perfect blend and how the geography and weather affect the aromas and flavours of different whiskies. All adults will also receive a souvenir crystal whisky tasting glass!
