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.

  • This place is amazing. Its a small little shop that you can get high quality scotch bottled for you on location. Lots of whiskey related items as well.
  • Best Whisky shop in Edinburgh. Great choice of rare whiskies and single casks. Really authentic. Staff is really nice and will give you good advices.
  • 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.
  • This is the place to go if you are looking for a wide range of whisky. They have everything from inexpensive, to top shelf. They even sell the cask ends, which are of a higher alcohol content, and are also cheaper than buying a full size bottle.
  • Fantastic selection of whisky, especially if you enjoy independent bottlings. Extremely friendly staff who are happy to give advice and suggestions if you are not sure exactly what you want.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
