Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Arrive at the entrance of the Scotch Whisky Experience, located right beside the Edinburgh Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your experience begins with a whisky barrel ride through a replica of the Scotch whisky distillery, during which the production processes for Scotch whisky are revealed.

    Then, a whisky expert introduces you to the different aromas of whiskies before offering you a taste of your preferred whisky. Visitors aged under 18 can sample Irn Bru, a famous Scottish soft drink.

    After viewing the world’s largest collection of Scotch whiskey, receive a crystal whisky tumbler to memorialize your visit to the Scotch Whisky Experience.
