What you'll do

We meet on the iconic Royal Mile by the eminent Scottish thinker and drinker Adam Smith. It is then a short walk to one excellent whisky bar that we use. We have the entire upstairs area reserved for us, ensuring lots of space for the group. During the course of two hours we will sample four outstanding Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the four major whisky producing regions of Scotland. We will discus some of the history of Scotland and explore the reasons as to why whisky is now so ingrained as a staple of Scottish culture and we have some great tales from Scotland and the world of whisky to share with you.

Luca And Ben

Whisky is the spirit of Scotland. Whisky is about the coming together of people, whether it be sharing a warming dram on a long winters night or celebrating with a wee dram at a wedding. Both Luca and I work as guides in Edinburgh and set up Little Fish Tours back in 2016. We are all about bringing people together and showing them not just the best sites of Edinburgh but also sharing a little in the culture of Scotland. What better way to immerse yourself in Scottish culture than to sit down with a local and share a whisky or four whilst listening to some great Scottish tales?

What's included

Drinks
If you pay the £15 extra I will provide 4 whiskies or a small beer/wine/cider/soft drink instead of each whisky.
Equipment
Expert guide, whisky enthusiast and storyteller (all in one!).

Where you'll be

Our regular venue is the enchanting Waverley Bar, something of an institution in Edinburgh and is famous within the folk music scene. The entire upper floor of the bar is reserved for us, giving us plenty of space and privacy for our story orientated evening. This is our usual space but particularly during peak seasons we have several back up venues. Regardless of the venue the most important part of this tour is sharing good whisky and stories.
