Edinburgh Whisky

LAST NIGHT, Edinburgh Whisky enjoyed a happy gathering of guests who came together to celebrate their launch at Bonnie & Wild in St James Quarter. 

Guests were treated to an experiential event, surrounded by the scents, sounds and tastes of Scotland with thanks to The Drinks Bakery and Neom Organics for their contributions. An evening of discovery with tales, tastings and canapés. Drinks aficionados from across the city gathered to sample drams from Edinburgh Whisky’s launch ‘Discovery’ Collection which includes quality Single Malts from Speyside, Islay and the Highlands. Ending with a drop in to the White Heather Ceilidh Club, guests joined 250 others in St James Quarter for a fling, dance and another dram to conclude the evening.

“The event was fantastic, we enjoyed all the different experiences. The choice of venue really shows off Scotland’s culinary values and expertise. As someone who runs national whisky events and knows that small independent bottlers are the future, I can see this brand is going to do exceptionally well”, says guest, Gareth Croll from the National Whisky Festival.

Edinburgh Whisky commented, “it was brilliant to bring everyone together and see them enjoying the products we’ve been working so hard on.”  

The only whisky dedicated in namesake to the city, Edinburgh Whisky has been created to capture and honour Scotland’s cultural connection to the ‘Water of Life’. The family-owned company launches first with the ‘Discovery Collection’, a trilogy of regional single malts from across the country, rich in history and heritage. They will soon follow with an additional three releases in the coming months; a Campbeltown, Lowland and Island whisky which will complete the collection.

Edinburgh Whisky’s inaugural ‘Discovery Collection’ showcases exceptional examples of Scotland’s regional malts from some of its most distinguished distilleries. Each classic expression is aged in specially selected bourbon and sherry casks and aim to take the audience on a sensory journey that showcases the unique characteristics Edinburgh Whisky look for in all their exemplary malts.

Comprising of a 7 year old Speyside, a 9 year old Highland Whisky and a 9 year old Islay, these three single malts embody the classic hallmarks of balance, depth and complexity which Edinburgh Whisky say “makes an exceptional whisky gift and is ideal for the whisky-lover who enjoys discovering the finest flavours, finishes and character.”


From the sweetness and light of Speyside to the fragrance and fruit of the Highlands and powerful peatiness of Islay, each expression has been carefully chosen to reflect the best of each Scottish whisky region.

Housed in a beautifully presented gift box, each exquisitely crafted glass bottle, designed by independent, award-winning studio PRC, is interwoven with a unique Edinburgh Whisky tartan and foiled crest. Featuring in the next Scotch Whisky Experience tour, as well as, in their expertly curated store for purchase, Edinburgh Whisky will land soon in select specialist whisky retailers and in the premium whisky on trade.

Retailing from £49.95, Edinburgh Whisky is available to shop online now at www.edinburghwhisky.com as well as via select retailers across Scotland.
