Husband loves whiskey and had a good time. The staff were all very friendly and the collection was impressive.
Also we tried a delicious malt whiskey cocktail

Staff well informed. Seem to love their job. Great educational tour. Virtual tour and tasting and really something not to miss. Complimentary tasting glass at end of tour is a nice touch. Very enjoyable wall to spend an hour.

My partner is the whiskey lover so I was indifferent to taking this tour BUT I’m so glad I did!!! Our tour guide Stewart (Stewart with a “w”) was excellent. Informative, professional and with a sense of humour. He really made us appreciate the delicacy and art of whisky making. He made the tour fun, interesting and interactive. Thank you. We’ll definitely recommend this tour.

Great pub with an amazing historic story. Met by a very helpful and polite doorman how could not be more helpful about his pub and other places to go to in Edinburgh! Had a great time!

Received 2 Platinum tour tickets as a present on leaving my employment and taking early retirement. Arrived early and had a meal in the Amber restaurant which was thoroughly enjoyable and well worth the money , food was excellent quality and very welcome on a cold Edinburgh January day. The Barrel ride at the start of the Tour was an interesting short journey through the whisky making process , this lead on to a discussion and light-hearted quiz about the various Scottish regions of whisky making and the differing characteristics which each possess , this involved getting several samples for tasting and trying to identfy the region they came from , so far so good.
Next was the huge whisky collection room which was originally started by a Brazilian gentleman and gifted to the "Whisky Experience" fascinating collection from the earliest bottles through to the present day .
The Tour finished off with several further samples and the opportunity to buy from a wide choice in the shop if required. Overall this was extremely worthwhile and educational in a lovely building with well informed guides. A credit to Edinburgh and an enjoyable visit.
