Wat kan je verwachten

Walking the Old Town of Edinburgh you'll see the city that founded the world’s largest Scottish whisky company, hear of the people that helped whisky production and then retire to Megget’s cellar for a complimentary candlelit single malt whisky tasting from four whisky producing regions.

Upon meeting your expert guide you’ll hear about Edinburgh’s role in bringing whisky to the rest of the world. Learn about how the 19th century changed whisky production in Scotland and of the locals that embraced it, from George Ballantine on South Bridge to Andrew Usher Jr at Nicolson Street, the pioneers that created their own whiskies and exported worldwide.

The tour then continues with a whisky tasting in our candlelit Megget’s Cellar. There’s no better way to warm the spirits. You’ll taste four Scottish whiskies, under the guidance of our whisky specialist – in a kilt, of course.

Our expert will cover everything you need to know about the water of life; from how whisky is made to the effects that different elements such as water, barley, peat and the cask have on the production process. Nose and taste your way through the whisky regions, with sample whiskies from Speyside, Highland, Islay and Lowland distilleries. Just consider this your first step to becoming a whisky connoisseur!
