Those of you who love the taste of Scotch whisky should treat yourself to one of our brewery and distillery tours in Edinburgh.
The Scottish capital is full of ancient history, with the imposing structure of the iconic Edinburgh castle dominating the skyline. However, the city is also known for its friendly bars that offer a traditional “wee dram” with the locals. Providing the perfect night-cap to end your day sightseeing before heading back to your accommodation.
Alternatively, by taking one of our whisky tours in Edinburgh you can sample a range of Scotland’s finest spirits. Often served straight out the barrel, for a drinks experience that you’ll remember every time your local barman reaches for the optics.
5 of Our Best Edinburgh Whisky Tours
While an organised pub crawl may take you to a handful of welcoming bars, our Edinburgh whisky tours take you direct to the source. Brewery and distillery tours in Edinburgh are the chance to learn more about your favourite spirit as you visit some of the most famous distilleries in Scotland.
The first of our 5 whisky tours in Edinburgh will take you to 3 separate distilleries over the course of a whistle-stop tour of Speyside. Your private guide and driver will take you to the Aberlour, Macallan and Glenfarclas distilleries from £130 per person. Although it’s worth noting between November and January, the itinerary may change due to opening hours.
Again, taking in the Macallan distillery, you’ll soon discover why the esteemed drinker makes this one their drink of choice. However, they also don’t come much more popular than a single-malt bottle of Glenfiddich, at one of the world’s best-selling distilleries. The 3rd visit on this particular tour will take you Glenlivet. The classy distillery continues to utilise traditional methods to showcase how the very best whisky was originally intended.
Possibly one of the most easily accessible whisky from Scotland is that of Johnnie Walker. There are 4 blends to choose from, all of which you will get to sample during your 12-hour round trip. Although not only that but the in-depth tour uncovers secrets that have helped Johnnie Walker become a household brand.
As if one day celebrating Scotland’s finest Scotch wasn’t enough, the Islay Platinum Whisky Tour is a connoisseur’s dream holiday. The 4-day whisky tour begins and ends in Edinburgh. However, the tour covers much ground along the way. See the full itinerary to learn more about the diverse range of distilleries visited, as well as an idea of everything else that’s included within the price.
The last of our current top-5 whisky tours in Edinburgh returns to the magnificent Macallan distillery in Speyside. The tour includes stopping for lunch, along with a full guided tour of not only the Macallan distillery but the added bonus of Glenfiddich as part of a taste-comparison.
