Scotch Whisky Experience
THE SCOTCH WHISKY EXPERIENCE
The Scotch Whisky Experience is a must-see attraction for anyone wanting to learn more about Scotland’s national drink, whisky. The name originates from the Gaelic ‘uisge’, meaning ‘water of life’, an adequate summation of the way most Scots feel about whisky! The Scotch Whisky Experience is proudly located next to Edinburgh Castle at the top of the Royal Mile.
The Whisky TourThe Scotch Whisky Experience is just that, a chance to experience first-hand the magic of the whisky-making process. Taking the tour of a replica whisky distillery allows you to learn about the time-honoured traditions that make up the production of Scotch whisky.
Relax and enjoy the barrel ride and let the Experience’s knowledgeable guides take you on a tour you won’t forget, which ends by viewing the largest whisky collection in the world. The Collection, as it’s simply known, is 3,384 bottles of different whisky that comes from around the world. It was amassed by Claive Vidiz, a whisky enthusiast from Sao Paulo, who began collecting whisky in the 1970s. In 2006, the Collection was purchased and brought home to Scotland.
