Discover the secrets of Edinburgh’s illicit stills and delve into the history of Scotland’s national drink as you explore over 400 years of whisky production in Scotland.

Learn about the origins of the ‘usque baugh’ and why Mary King’s Close was at the centre of thriving and bustling trades. Follow in the footsteps of a former resident as you journey back in time, and explore the rooms, streets and spaces underneath Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile.

Take in the aromas, become a nosing expert, and try a range of exclusive and specially selected whiskies from across Scotland.
