Not to be confused with the Whiski Room on the Royal Mile / High Street. They are owned by the same company but are VERY different! This is a great location, just off the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile, but is quite and...More

If you don't have time to hit one of the major distilleries outside of town, a stop here is more than adequate. They have an impressive selection of whiskeys with several pre-curated whiskey flight options for novices or those looking to zero in on specific...More

Jason the bartender was warm and helpful. Fantastic cocktails (blood and sand, whiskey old fashioned, whisky sour) and whisky tasting. Tastings start at £25.
