What travelers say:

[Sun] Today we went to a nice, fun and delicious place in Edinburgh...🥃[Good ]Scotch Whisky Experience[Scotch Whisky Experience Center] History of Scotch Whisky: Origin ~According to the Scotch Whisky Association, Scotch Whisky is from a kind of "Uisge Beatha" The earliest document of Scotch whisky was the purchase of eight cases of malt by Catholic monk John Cole (Friar John Corr) at the request of the King of England in 1494, and the first batch of Scotch was brewed on the Isle of Irey, Scotland. The purchase contract awarded by the King was the earliest record of Scotch today. In the 1630s and 1940s, Henry VIII dissolved the Abbey of England and dispersed the monks who were good at whisky making to the general public. This allows whiskey-making technology to be spread out of the monastery and among the general public. Scotch Whisky Experience, not far from the Edinburgh Castle Gate, is for tourists, but it really gives you a preliminary experience. There are several options for different lengths of tours, sitting in barrel-style tour trolleys, drinking different kinds of whiskey, and giving alcohol a magical touch to your journey. If you try to understand those who love whiskey, aside from the most basic benefits of alcohol, Whisky adds a sense of maturity. Whether it is a love of whisky or whisky white, you can try this experience tour. If you arrange the castle tour in the morning, you can come here at noon to eat and have a drink.
