Cadenhead's Whisky Shop, Edinburgh

4.7
Pick up a bottle of finely crafted liquor at Cadenhead's Whisky Shop, 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.

  • As the oldest independent bottler in Scotland, Cadenheads is the go to place for whisky in Edinburgh. Whether looking for yourself, or a gift someone - their selection of rare and unique bottles is outstanding. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful - if whisky is your thing, don't miss this shop. My suitcases went home far heavier than they left because of this place...
  • So helpful! And such selection! They let us try so many different whiskys, and the young man helping us was so friendly (and adorable) and not at all pressuring us to buy anything.
  • Very friendly and helpful service. They have truly unique whisky options. I will definitely recommend you try this.
  • Very friendly staff. Patient. Knowledgeable. Pleasant experience overall!
  • Impressive knowledge and service. I appreciate the fact I got to taste the ones I was curious about. Reasonably priced and overall a good experience.

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.
