  • This place is absolutely amazing! If you like whiskey like I do, you will love this place. Very nice informative presentations and at the end finally whiskey tasting :) I had the Silver Package, which lasts about 50 minutes and at the end you can sample a glass of whiskey of your choice. The staff were super friendly and if you don't speak English well, they have audio assistance in different languages as well. Definitely worths a visit if you are in beautiful Edinburgh.
  • Entry was £16 pound for the Silver tour. You get into a big whiskey barrel and it tells you about the process. The animation is pretty good and something different. The explanation of the different types of whiskey and what makes it a blend is also very interesting. Was nice to taste one of them too. I'd go back for a bigger range of testing next time. They also let you keep the glass. The unopened whiskey collection is amazing. Only wish I could taste the lot of them.
