Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Little gem
Sep 2021 • Couples
Was looking for a whiskey tasting a little off the beaten track after seeing the top rated tourist option for whiskey tasting in Edinburgh. Found this little gem from other TripAdvisor reviews, hands down some of the best money I've spent on a holiday activity. I myself hadn't had whiskey more than a few times in my life before this and wasn't a fan, bought more as a treat for my boyfriend - it was me walking away with a full purchased bottle of whiskey after the tasting!

Hector gave a fantastic, funny explanation of whiskey history throughout the roughly 70-80 minutes and how this has shaped British history. My partner and I had the 'regions' package, 5 drams of whiskey from around Scotland - was so worth it for the price (£25), I've come away with a new found appreciation for whiskey and have a great little baseline of knowledge to take forward.

Jeffrey st. Whiskey tasting
Aug 2021 • Couples
My partner and I did the regional whiskey tasting and we couldnt have been happier. Hector was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and gave an excellent delivery. We both tried 5 whiskeys, each from a different area, all presented in a very comfortable sitting area.
Very pleased, much more personal than most tastings, would thoroughly recommend.

Great whisky-tasting experience
Jul 2021
We selected the 'regions' whisky tasting as part of a stag do - there was 6 of us who attended. Due to Covid we had to alter numbers right up to the morning of the event, and this was no trouble for the venue who were very accommodating and allowed flexibility.

The event itself was excellent - we tried 5 good-sized samples of whisky and the information from Hector was interesting without being over-bearing or 'too much'. The shop is easy to find, cosy, very well-furnished, and staff are brilliant.

A really excellent experience and highly recommended.

The best whisky tasting in the city
Jul 2021 • Friends
Just walk 5 minutes from the tourist trap shops and you will find this little gem.. truly knowledgeable and passionate about whisky. The whisky tasting is a perfect combination of history, great whiskies (choose the selection most interesting to you) and good fun. Hector and the team have got the balance exactly right and we massively enjoyed our time there. Highly recommended.

Outstanding service

Went in looking for a cigar and accompanying whisky to take on a trip with me, the staff were incredible and extremely knowledgeable and helped pick the perfect cigar and whisky for me. Wouldn't go anywhere else for cigars as the service was outstanding.

Great Advice
Jun 2021 • Solo
I was recommended this shop by a guide at the Edinburgh castle to avoid ending up at a tourist ripoff shop like the one beside the castle. The shop is not large, but has an supberb selection and after chatting with the assistant about taste he offered me 5/6 bottles with explanations, I selected 3 of which 2 were excellent and quite rare, not available outside the local area. I kept their card and shall order again via their shipping service.
