Scotch on the Rock
“The staff are great – such passion and knowledge for Scotch and Scotland” - Stuart Willis, Sydney, Australia
An absolute must for any whisky lover. The Scotch Whisky Experience is perched on the rock a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle and is the home to the World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky. Exclusive tours of the Whisky Vault holding The Collection can be arranged to allow a private viewing hosted by one of our expert whisky advisors. Your host will recount tales of the most interesting and unusual bottles while you savour a specially selected mature dram and enjoy a rare chance to peruse rows and rows of diverse and treasured whiskies at your own pace.
"Great value- I’ll certainly be recommending the tour to friends!” - Arthur Darlington, Seven Oaks, England
The Collection Tour begins with the other elements of the standard tour which families can enjoy with a special guide – Peat the Cat – to keep younger visitors entertained. Tours include a contemporary barrel ride through whisky production and interactive nosing and tasting in new sensory rooms, before the impressive finale of a tasting in the World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky.
The tour concludes in the McIntrye Whisky Gallery giving visitors the opportunity to linger over a dram, admire our collection of “Barrel Art”, join in a cocktail master-class or just chat to our whisky advisors.
If you really want to impress your guests then we can offer private dining for anything from 2 to 10 guests in the Whisky Vault. The stunning specially commissioned glass vault is completed with marble floors and a crystal chandelier adding to the sense of elegant opulence.
