Attraction in Edinburgh
Take a barrel ride as you actually become part of the whisky making
process. Journey through gently swaying fields of barley and on to the
warmth of the Malt Kiln with its lingering smell of burning peat. Take
great care to avoid being ground through the Malt Mill before being spun and
mashed in the Mash Tun. Then it's off to the turbulent wooden Washback with
the sound of the sloshing Wash before the steaming and bubbling Pot Still.
Breathe in the restful smell of the Oak Casks and the process slows down to
the tick-tock of the passing years of maturation.
Discover the stories behind the secret and magical ingredient of time. As the years pass by preserving forever the stories and character of the people who made it, the whisky now begins to take on its amber hue, developing its complexity and taking on a smooth and lingering character.
Explore Scotland's diverse whisky regions and the flavours that the countryside imparts to its whiskies. Experience for yourself the varying aromas and whether you like fruity, sweet or smoky flavours our experts will help you select your perfect dram.
Your guide will then allow you access to our vault containing the Diageo Claive Vidiz Scotch Whisky Collection; the world's largest collection of Scotch Whiskies, where you can enjoy a special tutored nosing and tasting of your dram.
