Whisky is as ubiquitous to Scotland as wooden shoes are to the Netherlands and the baguette is to France. The Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh will take you on a tour to discover the secrets of Scotch whisky. Board a whisky barrel that will take you through the replica of a distillery and learn what is involved in making this liquid gold.
The Scotch Whisky Experience is located on the Royal Mile close to Edinburgh Castle. It was founded in 1987 by 19 Scotch whisky companies under the name The Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre. The goal was to create a permanent attraction where visitors can learn about the history and the development of Scotch whisky. Later, the name was changed to the Scotch Whisky Experience, a place that now draws tens of thousands of visitors a year.
