I visited on a platinum tour, bought for my partner's birthday as he loves his whiskey. As someone who had never been I to whiskey before, I was completely unsure of what to expect here. Without giving anything away, I will say that this was an amazing evening! Our tour guide was excellent, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The whiskey collection was incredible, and the tasting was surprising. I did not think I would be able to appreciate the whiskey tasting that much, but I came away having found exactly what kind of whiskey I do enjoy. My partner also loved it! So from one person who previously didn't know much about or think she liked whiskey, and another whiskey drinker who knows what he likes, this was a 5 star experience and I would recommend to anyone!GOOGLE REVIEW

We went for the platinum experience with the meal included. Overall beyond expectations, thoroughly enjoyed it and my partner who is not into whisky still loved the experience. The food was 80% good although the service was a little sparse. My one issue which was a large one is that the chefs don't seem to know how to make risotto with any flavour whatsoever. The risotto balls with the starter were not only devoid of flavour but also absorbed any flavour left in your mouth. The main salmon risotto that they had ran out of salmon for and replaced with another fish, however the actual risotto was just rice pudding with vague memories of fish. Avoid all risottos where possible. Aside from that sticking point the rest was far far better and overall recommended.GOOGLE REVIEW

We had a great experience on the platinum tour. The tour itself was a little cheesy but fun. For those who aren't familiar with the process of making scotch, the various regions of where scotch is produced, it was very informative. Our tour guide, Lucy, was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. She did a great job guiding us through our tasting and had fun and interesting stories to share about each distillery that she personally selected for our group. This was a great way to get exposed to the world of scotch and all the different regions. That being said, if if you are a seasoned scotch drinker, this may not be for you as it is a pretty broad overview.GOOGLE REVIEW

I went here with a group of friends, and what an experience it was. We went for the premium option tour which I think was £35 PP and after an interactive experience, we sampled some whiskeys whilst being told about their heritage and I left knowing more than I did before. The staff were incredible as well, their knowledge was second to none and they were very passionate in their work. I would 100% recommend to anyone who is going with a group of friends, or even with your partner as it's a fantastic experience and what I would truly believe to be one of the best in Edinburgh.GOOGLE REVIEW

We had a great time on the Silver Tour with our guide, Sam who was fantastic! The tour was very well constructed and despite a few (very cool) fun park -style gimmicks, not tacky! The balance was just right. And Sam was excellent at keeping people engaged and entertained throughout the tour. I would definitely go again. Thank you!GOOGLE REVIEW
