Scotch Whisky Experience – what an experience

Scotch Whisky Experience – what an experience

Posted on: December 14, 2015

I am delighted as part of the Susan Reid Collection to represent the sales & marketing for the Scotch Whisky Experience on Edinburgh’s historical Royal Mile.

Primarily building the awareness of the wonderful facilities for groups such as:

  • Private dinning
  • Meetings and Conferences
  • The Whisky Collection unique dining experience
  • The Whisky Explorer Treasure Hunt
  • Whisky Tours and Tastings

This past weekend, I was fortunate to sample this wonderful experience in booking the Silver Tour and what a wonderful experience this was.  Simply the best in Scottish service and hospitality I am delighted to say.

We were met at the reception and guided onto the Barrel Tour which is a 10 minute ride taking you through the crafting of whisky.  Following this you are shown into a room to learn more about malts and blends from some of the staff’s most experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff.  At this stage through a sniff test you discover what region of whisky might suite your pallet.  Then the tasting!

Following which you are taken in to view the World’s largest Whisky Collection – the Diageo Claive Vidiz Whisky Collection.  This is just under 4,000 bottles and the room provides the most beautiful amber glow from all the stunning bottles.  Have the right budget and this room can be booked for a private dinner for up to 10 guests!

Completing the tour in the McIntyre Gallery to view some of the more unusual bottles in the Collection and if you are lucky to be on a Gold Tour – you sample more whisky!

Our morning was then complemented by a visit to Amber Restaurant for some excellent Scottish Fayre and need I say it more whisky if you wish.

Proud to represent and work with such an excellent team and personally endorse a wonderful venue and visitor attraction.  A must when visiting Edinburgh
