Experience the true taste of Scotland! Edinburgh Expert has paired up with Jeffrey St. Whisky and Tobacco to offer private whisky tastings as an optional add-on to any private tour or information package.
With a range of tasting packages starting at just £12 a person, these tutored tastings are an ideal introduction to the world of Scotch whisky, led by true connoisseurs of the whisky scene.
Learn how to 'taste' whisky using your senses of sight, smell and taste, as well as sampling the distinguishing characteristics from the different regions of Scotch distilleries, and the main flavours and palettes of a variety of whiskies.
Located in a central location just off the Royal Mile, a stop at Jeffrey St. Whisky and Tobacco can be factored into any Up-Close and Personal Tour, Edinburgh Expert Package bespoke tour, or Lowlands Grand Tour, to give you a fantastic insight into this integral feature of Scottish culture and heritage. And with a dazzling array of whiskies in stock, including exclusive and limited edition bottlings, as well as a range of genuine Cuban and New World cigars, the helpful and knowledgeable staff would also be happy to help you choose a perfect gift or tasty souvenir of your visit to Scotland.
In addition to private tasting, we are offering a combined tour and tasting package on Tuesday evenings through the summer. For just £20 per person, my Whisky Walk will take you on a guided tour around the Canongate and Holyrood areas of Edinburgh - traditionally the city's brewing district - before returning to Jeffrey St. for a tutored introductory tasting of a selection of three fine Scotch whiskies. There is no better way to see Edinburgh and sample this taste of Scotland!
