Come join us for an evening of whisky and stories in the historic heart of the Old Town of Edinburgh. Whisky 101 is the ideal introduction to the world of whisky - we'll tell you how the process starts, how the industry grew, and all about some of the wacky characters and intriguing stories that helped to make the Scottish whisky industry the finest in the world.
Along the way, we'll sample whiskies from each of the major whisky producing regions in Scotland, whilst exploring a newly uncovered underground area of Edinburgh.
The standard price includes 4 whiskies from 4 different distilleries, as one of our talented guides leads you on a spirited adventure through our very unique venue.
We also offer two other options for the more experienced whisky connoisseur:-
Intermediate Level - 4 drams of rarer, older, and more unusual whiskies, things you won't find anywhere else or older versions of whiskies you may have seen in reputable whisky shops.
High End Whiskies - 5 drams of top shelf whisky, the kind you'd pine over in the shop but never consider buying for yourself, and now is your opportunity to try it.
