I am a whisky expert, with a diploma in whisky nosing and tasting, also an authorised whisky ambassador, and have been carrying out whisky tastings professionally for 7 years. I currently also run an experience in Edinburgh which takes you to Glenkinchie Distillery then to a local restaurant for traditional Scottish food paired with 3 whiskies telling the story of single malt whisky, allowing the food and the whisky to compliment each other.
I have many 5 star reviews on this experience

Fantastic evening! I booked the whisky tasting as a Mother's Day present and got the whole family to attend. Neil was incredibly knowledgeable, warm and fun. We all really enjoyed taking a wee dram, or three! I came away knowing a lot more about whisky and was tipsy to boot. One of the best experiences I've ever had and my mum absolutely loved it. Book it!
