Cadenhead's, Edinburgh

(4.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Pick up a bottle of finely crafted liquor at Cadenhead's, one of the few remaining independent whiskey bottlers. In operation since 1842, this establishment promises customers a product that's never been chilled, filtered, colored, or chemically altered. Each cask of whiskey is individually selected to be bottled. Also consider the rums and cognacs bottled and sold here. While the prices aren't cheap, the whiskey is likely to be among the best you've ever tasted. Ask about the possibility of tasting a sample before your purchase. Cadenhead's is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Edinburgh Edition.

  • Went to buy a certain whisky. Hours are listed as Mon - Sat, 10AM - 5PM. At 3PM on a Tuesday, they were locked up tight. No sign to explain. 
  • Cozy rustic shop located on the Royal Mile close to the Scottish Parliament could not have been more charming or fun. Josh greeted me warmly and as if i were on a whiskey tour, he explained what I mig...  more »
  • Highly interesting whisky-laden with own bottlings. Who is looking for something, what not to buy it in shops, is right here.

  • One of the best whisky shops in Edinburgh. Expect to find real gems here, stuff you will not be able to buy anywhere else. These guys bottle their own stock from various distilleries. No chill-filtration, no colouring, usually single barrel as well. Simply outstanding. Definitely worth a visit if you are after a special bottle of whisky.
  • We bought a couple of their blended cask whiskies which were slightly overpriced for the quality. The employee seemed reluctant to give us a taste of one of the bottles we wanted to try even though it was not much more expensive than normal and we were already spending over fifty pounds. Would not come back.
  • Actually, one of our favorite experiences in Edinburgh. the man helping us was so friendly and knowledgeable and you could tell that he really just loved whisky. A very painless buying experience
  • Most knowledgeable staff who pointed us towards delicious whiskies we would never be able to buy back home. Worth the visit.
  • Best shop for local scotish wishkey if you want to find in edinburgh
