If there is one thing that Scotland is famous for, it is whisky. Not just drinking it, of course (although they are pretty great at that, it has to be said) but also making delicious whisky too.

This means that if you are planning on visiting Edinburgh, you will want to sample some of the local whisky. The good news is that whisky tasting in Edinburgh is easy enough to do. There are many great places that you can go to if you want to sample whisky and learn about how it is created.

If you are heading to Scotland for the Six Nations, why not take a break from the matches and add a distillery tour ticket with your Scotland six nations tickets?

Head to the bars

Of course, what better way to get to sample some of the fantastic whisky in Scotland than to head to one of the many bars in Edinburgh. The bars in Edinburgh are popular for a reason. Not only do they serve some of the best drinks from the local area (and those that you may be used to seeing closer to home), but they also have an atmosphere in them that is hard to beat.

Especially during the Six Nations time when everyone seems to come together even more.

Take a whisky tour

One of the best places to learn about tasting whisky in Edinburgh is through whisky tours. This could be a distillery tour from Edinburgh or a tasting experience to give you the chance to sample some of the finest whisky in its home surroundings.

There are many different tours that you can book to sample the best whisky in the city.

You can take the Whisky Warriors Waterfalls tour or stay local and try the Edinburgh New Town Whisky Tour or the Whisky Tasting Storytelling experience. You could visit the first single malt whisky distillery in Edinburgh in over 100 and try the Holyrood Distillery Tour. But if you’re going to sample everything that it has to offer, make a day of it and book in for the Ultimate Whisky Experience.
