  • This is a wonderful place to visit, to understand and gain insight into authentic Scotch Whiskey, and in Scotland itself. It was a very worthwhile experience for all of us.

  • A fun way to be introduced to scotch. Didn't turn me into a scotch drinker (still prefer bourbon), but it was fun and educational!

  • Getting the gold tour was one of the best experiences I've had in Edinburgh. I really enjoyed the barrel ride and how they explained the whisky making process. The tour guide was fantastic, and she explained the 5 areas of scotch whisky with great detail on the flavour profiles and location. Only thing I'd improve is more interactivity in the whisky tasting as the extra amount paid for the gold tour doesn't seem too worth it as we were left to our own when tasting the whisky at the end. However, I'd still highly recommend going if in Edinburgh but go for the silver tour. Overall = 8/10
  • What a brilliant experience. Did the platinum tour, pricey but a great experience if you like whisky. The tour guide was brilliant - I don't recall her name but a lovely lady with dark hair who knew her whisky! The barrel ride to begin with was amazing I loved it, really informative and fun. The whisky tasting itself was also a great experience, and the room with the whisky collection is just beautiful! Also loved the freebie nosing glass and whisky map at the end. I loved the experience from start to finish, would highly recommend.
