Once again, we are excited to bring back our unique tasting Whisky in the Dark. Due to the popularity of this wee beastie of ours (it's been featured in The Scotsman, and the Edinburgh Evening News, amongst others), we will be holding it twice in one day! You can join us for a late afternoon tasting from 5-7 pm, or an evening tasting from 8:30-10:30 pm.

It's all going to take place in complete and utter pitch-black darkness. We'll be serving 5 delicious drams, complemented by live music provided by the excellent Toby Mottershead (lead singer of the Black Diamond Express).

No night lights allowed.

Why? Science says that when one of your senses is blocked or made useless, it enhances the other senses. This means that your whisky will smell and taste that much better.

Hooray for science!

Excited? We certainly are.

Tickets are limited, with only 26 spots available per tasting. No tickets will be sold at the door, so buy them here. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before we begin the tasting, so we can run on time.

We can't wait to see you. 

NOTE ON LATECOMERS: Since we want to create an amazing environment for the tasting, we can't have it spoiled by latecomers. We will NOT accept anyone who shows up more than 10 minutes late after the official start time, and we won't give you a refund either. You've been warned!

NOTE ON DISABLED ACCESS: Please note the tasting venue is up a few flights of stairs, and there is no disabled access available, unfortunately.
