The Scotch Whisky Experience
Want to learn more about the distilling process of Scottish whisky in an interactive way? Or would you rather try and/or buy rare whiskies? Then the Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh is made for you. A drunken Scottish spirit guides you through the world of whisky, after which you can experience the taste of whisky yourself in the tasting.
Learn about Scotch whisky
In The Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre you can find The Scotch Whisky Experience. The Experience is part whisky museum, highlighting the whisky distilling process, and part interactive experience, as you learn more about whisky distilling through a tour in a whisky barrel. You get this information from a projected Scottish spirit, who apparently has experience in good whisky and who also takes you into the aromas of Scotch whisky.
Best experience: tasting of whiskies
After the educational roller coaster ride you will end up in the tasting room, where you can see the largest collection of Scotch whiskies. This collection consists of no less than 3384 bottles and was collected by the Brazilian Claive Vidiz. The collection is stored in special glass and marble vaults. Your ticket determines how many whiskys you can taste in the tasting. Your tour ends in a shop, where you can take the Scotch whisky home with you (more info and tour bookings).
