This is the UK’s first vertical whisky distillery. In fact, nobody has built anything quite like this anywhere in the world.

Founded by two friends from Edinburgh, the building reflects the company’s ambition to bring a modern and pioneering approach to producing Scotland’s national drink, leveraging years of research conducted over the years preceding construction.

The production process is laid out over the first 4 floors of the building, with the gleaming copper stills set on the ground floor.

The upper half of the building is given over to visitor facilities, with a tasting floor, shop and reception, private dining rooms and an incredible double-height bar on the 8th and 9th levels, commanding views across the Firth of Forth, over to Fife, and back up across Edinburgh.

We offer tours and tasting, event space, a whisky bar and dining experience with exceptional views, all right in the heart of Edinburgh.
