“Best of all were Fraser’s endless nuggets of wisdom and whisky history, and his genuine enthusiasm. ” Oliver Smith, The Telegraph

Why we love it

Located in the landmark Balmoral Hotel, SCOTCH presents Edinburgh’s largest collection of whisky available to the general public - over 500 malts, blends and vintages. As the name suggests, this is a spiritual home for whisky lovers. Traditional values meet modern sensibilities and no effort is spared to give guests an unforgettable whisky tasting experience.

What's Included?

  • Savour a Rare & Ghosted Whisky Journey at SCOTCH at the Balmoral
  • Sample four whiskies, each considered rare – whether a limited release, from a closed distillery or a rare bottling
  • Discover a wealth of information about the taste and heritage of each dram under the guidance of one of SCOTCH’s knowledgeable Whisky Ambassadors
  • During the tasting, dine on a selection of delicious bar bites, chosen to bring out the flavours in the whisky
