Settle in for a dram in SCOTCH, our world-class whisky bar. With over 500 unique varieties of Scottish whisky within the bar’s hand-crafted, oak-panelled whisky cabinet, selected from distilleries in the Highlands, Lowlands, Islands, Islay and Speyside, our collection is one of the largest in Edinburgh.

Our Story

Our passionate and friendly Whisky Ambassadors can help you make your choice from the ever-changing selection, with its compelling big-hitter bottles, as well as rare and limited editions. Or they can guide you through a phenomenal tasting, sharing stories, tasting notes and passing along their love of “the water of life” with each sip.

Whether you know your peaty from your creamier, sherry-matured whiskies, or you’re just looking to taste whisky for the first time, everyone is welcome. From the glowing amber-coloured walls and the gleaming brushed brass and black granite bar to the smile you receive as you walk through the door, SCOTCH is one of the city’s best-kept secrets.
