If you like Scotch, which why would anyone not like Scotch, this is a must. If you do the gold tour (which is not much more expensive) you get the tour which tells you how to make whiskey, but on top of that you get a customized Glen Cairn glass and you get to sample all of the "types" of Scotch instead of just one. Well worth it. They have the largest and most extensive collection of Scotch whiskey in the world. Very cool
Great introduction to whiskey.A great combination of things that you can enjoy even if you aren't old enough to taste the whiskey, though of course that is what the real experience is there for! A mini ride, scratch and sniff cards, entertaining presenter, all mean if a parent is bringing s younger child they won't simply be dragging them along.A good chance to be able to try some different whiskeys and have them properly explained, so you can appreciate others you try more in the future.Located right next to the castle and camera obscura.
This is a fun intro to Scotch Whisky that you don’t need to be a booze enthusiast to appreciate. It’s very well done but pretty short (shorter than advertised) and you only get one tiny sample at the end unless you upgrade to the gold tour which, unexpectedly, also include’s a year’s membership to the Scotch Whisky Appreciation Society. Maybe a better bargain if you are a local.
The Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh is a guided tour to how the scottish single malt and blended whisky is made. Located uphill on the Royal Mile next to the Edinburgh Castle you can visit the castle and then walk down for this tour. They have different levels of this tour depending on whether you are a beginner or a connoisseur. Each tour includes a tasting of the dram of single malt from one region of Scotland and they teach you how to taste the drink. The Gold tour upward you have tasting of every region's dram and some even have a one to one tasting and learning experience. But the Silver tour is perfect for beginners. The tour includes a visit to the world's largest scotch whisky collection of 3500 bottles at the Diageo Claive Vidiz as well as some of the regions oldest and most expensive whiskies. You can even conclude the tour at their restaurant for whisky pairing or buy some labels or miniatures to take home as souvenirs.
