whiskey tour hen party in edinburgh
You can't have a hen party in Scotland without enjoying a 'wee dram'. We're not saying it's illegal but it probably should be. The name for the highland amber nectar "whiskey" comes from the old Gaelic, "uisce beatha" which translates as "water of life". Which sums up just how important this traditional beverage is to Scottish heritage.
But this isn't some musty old tour where a man in a musty tweed jacket talks about grain, this is the Willy Wonka of whiskey drinking experiences and even features a ride while sitting in a funky, shaped out whiskey barrel.
Hens that love a tipple or two will really appreciate the tour which takes in the world's largest collection of Scotch whiskey. You simply won't believe just how many bottles, flavours, malts and blends there are. It's worth the whole experience just to stand in front of the glittering array of bottles which is mind numbing (although not as mind numbing as if you were to actually try drinking it all).
The layout really is supercool and has the feel of a trendy, ultra-modern hotel or contemporary art gallery rather than a museum. In fact if James Bond were to take a day off and go see the sites of Edinburgh we're pretty sure this is where he'd come (although if Daniel Craig does walk in, hands off! We saw him first).
As well as sampling some of the fine fire water (well, it would be rude not to) each hen will also receive a whiskey tasting glass to take away. And on top of all that there'll be a whiskey expert on hand to give you a crash course in Scotland's finest and most celebrated export.
