The Whisky Collection
Next to Edinburgh Castle at the top of Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, The Scotch Whisky Experience has become one of Edinburgh’s private dining highlights. Served alongside a world-record-breaking stock of 3400 bottles of Whisky, modern Scottish cuisine comes courtesy of Executive Head Chef David Neave. Menus make the most of Scotland’s larder, with fresh, local and seasonal produce featured heavily.
Housed in a stunningly lit marble and glass vault, The Whisky Collection (8-10 seated, 25 standing) offers guests a bespoke 5-course menu, with a super-premium dram of Whisky matched with dessert.
The vault containing The World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky is one of Edinburgh’s most impressive attractions, and has now become one of its most luxurious and unique private dining rooms. A sumptuous 5 course meal served in the Amber glow of the restaurant’s famous bottles makes for an unforgettable experience.
Guests may be entertained beforehand with a private Whisky tour, then served cocktails or Champagne in the stunning McIntyre Gallery, with its panoramic Edinburgh views. Once seated in The Whisky Collection itself, guests will enjoy a specially created 5-course menu under the Swarovski chandelier. As the evening nears its close, a super-premium dram of Whisky will be served, its taste perfectly matched to the chosen dessert. A minimum spend of £175 per guest applies to this room, based on minimum numbers of 8, and each guest will leave with their own commemorative gift.
