Did you know that May is Whisky Month? Every year, whisky lovers celebrate it across the world. Immerse yourself in Scotland’s rich culture of distilling and drinking whisky.

Join us for A Dram of History – an exclusive tour that combines history with a whisky tasting.

In May, we’re giving you the opportunity to round off your Standard 1-Hour Tour of The Real Mary King’s Close with a crafted whisky tasting. All in the heart of Edinburgh. Discover the secrets of Edinburgh’s former residents before delving into the history of whisky during a 30-minute tasting experience.

Moreover, learn about the origins of the ‘usque baugh’, and why Mary King’s Close was at the centre of thriving and bustling trades. Follow in the footsteps of a former resident as you journey back in time, and explore the rooms, streets, and spaces underneath Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile.

Take in the aromas, become a nosing expert, and try a range of exclusive and specially selected whiskies from across Scotland.

Pre-Booking is strongly recommended as places are limited. Over 18’s Only.
