Begin your adventure with a panoramic drive to the center of Edinburgh.
Edinburgh, the inspiring and beautiful capital of Scotland, was one of the major centers of the Enlightenment movement -- a city of great medical knowledge and advances, and known as the Athens of the North. It is draped dramatically over a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags and is accessed by way of a network of narrow streets, steep closes, and secret staircases. From the comfort of your coach, explore this treasure trove UNESCO World Heritage Site that is comprised of Edinburgh's Old and New Towns. The city boasts 40 conservation areas and more than 4,500 heritage-listed buildings -- a true feast for the eyes.
Next, you're headed to an award-winning Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue. What better place to discover the joys of whisky than right here in Edinburgh? You will be guided through the whisky-making and whisky-tasting process by resident experts in this exceptional location. Every step of the way is engaging, informative and fun and the whisky itself is, of course, exceptional.
At a tasting session, participants are invited to taste a selection of the Society's single malts -- each drawn from a single cask and each at 56% to 65% ABV. Society experts are there to guide you through the nosing and tasting process. You will use the Society's special tasting glasses, tasting guides in the form of a small booklet, and tasting notes relating to each whisky being sampled -- an enjoyable experience for novice and aficionado alike.
