Fantastic experience with knowledgable and help associates. A whisky tasting was had and enjoyed by my husband. He would definitely go back and do it again!

We will definitely visit Cadenheads when we return to Edinburgh, as they have a fair number of Cadenhead cask strength whiskies as well as quite a number of distillery bottlings , including some rare ones. When we entered the shop, we were made welcome by...More

First, the staff is as knowledgeable as any whisky shop in Scotland or the distilleries. And definitely more knowledgeable than most. Second, the staff is approachable, warm, and helpful. I simply relayed my normal whisky selections and palate preferences and we were off to the...More

I was referred by another whiskey lover to stop by Cadenhead’s and I’m glad I did. Besides a vast selection of great whiskey’s they also are bottlers of rum. I purchased a bottle of Cuba rum that I will savour. I definitely recommend Cadenhead’s.

If you love whisky or is looking for an interesting gift for someone who does, visit Cadenhead's. They will tell you about the bottlings currently available and often you can also have a little taste before you decide. It is always special coming here.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
