“The show stopper is the ceiling-high cabinet housing a collection of more than 420 whiskies… with proprietary expressions mingling with independent bottlings and some from single casks.” The Telegraph

Why we love it

Located in the iconic Balmoral Hotel, SCOTCH sports an extraordinary range of over 500 malts, blends and vintages. Traditional values meet modern sensibilities and the bar is exuberant in its celebration of Scotland’s finest export. Settle in for a dram beside the bar's stunning hand-crafted, oak-panelled whisky cabinet on this whisky tasting experience exploring Scotland's five regions. A phenomenal tasting at one of the city's best-kept secrets.

  • Nibble on a selection of delicious bar bites, chosen to bring out the flavours in the whisky
