  • The Scotch Whisky Experience: Guided Tour and Whisky Tasting

    1. The Scotch Whisky Experience: Guided Tour and Whisky Tasting

    This guided whisky tour tells the story of Scotland’s most famous product. A highlight of these tours is the Diageo Claive Vidiz Scotch Whisky Collection, which is the world’s largest collection of Scotch whisky, encompassing almost 3,500 individual bottles. This tour starts with the Whisky barrel car ride, which takes guests through the production and maturation process of Scotch whisky. This is followed by a sensory journey of Scotland including an introduction to Scotch whisky aromas. Next, enjoy a tutored appreciation of Scotch whisky along with a viewing of the world’s largest collection of Scotch Whisky (guests under 18 years of age will be given Irn Bru, a Scottish soft drink). The gift of a crystal tasting glass is included with this tour. If you select the gold tour option, after enjoying a full guided tour, you'll compare and contrast 4 regional single malts whilst relaxing ...

    An amazing learning and tasting experience. Highly recommend upgrading to the gold to experience all the regions of Whisky production.

    We spent a wonderful 3 hours with our guide, Doug, on a walking tour tasting whisky in Edinburgh. Doug gave us an immersion class in Scotch whiskey and threw in some Scottish history along the way. He made our journey enjoyable any relatable. We were so glad to get to know Doug and experience the things he loves about Edinburgh. We highly recommend booking him for any Edinburgh adventure.

Very professional presentation. Really interesting and gave a good insight into the history and geography of whisky distilling The guide who took us was very knowledgeable about whisky not only Scottish but other areas as well.
