A Scottish Whiskey Experience in Edinburgh

Summary

You’ll sip your way around Edinburgh’s Old Town with one of our hosts, a fellow whiskey-lover, of course. They’ll tell you all they know about the different whiskey distilleries in the city, and impart some of the Scottish traditions and witticisms surrounding the tipple with you. You’ll sample amber liquid from various whiskey regions in the country and learn to distinguish between the different notes. Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
