Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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.

  • What a find! They let you taste and buy straight out of the casks here. Then you get a custom label for your bottle. They offer 3 sizes. This make a great momento or gift. Staff was very helpful.  more »

  • 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
