It was a really exciting time. I got to know more about whiskey and I was able to hear interesting stories as a bonus. A special time that passed without knowing how an hour passed.

Wonderful time! Nothing pairs better than good whiskey and a good story. Alistair’s extensive research of all things Scottish whiskey, combined with his passion and knowledge of historic Scottish events, figures, and folklore, offers a tremendous way to spend an evening in Edinburgh - educational, relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyable. Whether you’re new to whiskey, or an experienced drinker, you’ll enjoy Alistair’s distinct and delicious recommendations. I recommend extending the night with another glass downstairs at the pub with the lovely people you meet along the tour.

Whisky and local stories - great way to start a trip to Edinburgh!

Our first night in Edinburgh we participated in this great whiskey tasting experience! The tasting takes place at the Waverly pub, known for folklore, in the upstairs room where melodies of traditional Scottish music made its way up. We were lucky in that the group was pretty small, so it was an intimate 2-hour experience. Our guide John was amazing, very knowledgeable about Scotch and the stories of Scotland/Edinburgh. The tour includes a taste of 4 different types of whiskey, and you learn a lot about Scotch. The 4 whiskeys were very different, and it gives you a great starting point to figure out what you like and would like to try more of during your time in Scotland! Along with the tasting, John shared stories of Edinburgh, and he definitely has the gift of a storyteller, we could have listened to him all night! It was a great way to start our stay in Edinburgh, I highly recommend this experience!

2nd time on this tour. Greg was an outstanding guide and a fabulous story teller - even though I had been on the same tour before the content was fresh and new stories to boot. Wish we had longer so we could join the other tours he does!
