Our Whisky and Folklore tour is unlike any other experience in Edinburgh. We take you to the historic Waverley Pub whereyou will be served four classic Single Malt Scotch Whiskys and immerse ourselves in the great cultural importance of whisky and storytelling in Scotland.

Know More about this tour

This tour meets on the iconic Royal Mile and we have a short walk down to the Waverley Pub.  This bar has been in the same family for over 8 decades and by the owners own admittance the bar has a dusty potted history of folk, folk and folklore (people, music and storytelling). There can be few more suiting and atmospheric buildings to hold our tour in. After all, this is the bar that helped launch Billy Connolly!

Over the next two hours we will drink four outstanding Single Malt Scotch Whiskys taken from the four major whisky producing regions of Scotland. These whiskys will range from the relatively delicate and subtle flavours of the Lowlands to the bold and robust tastes from Islay.  We will also provide you with tasting cards giving notes on each of the whiskys that we sample.

Scotland has a deep routed story telling tradition which centres around the idea of people coming together, sharing good times, good stories and good whisky with each other.  The role of the  story tellers was a highly respected position to hold in ancient Scotland.

During this tour we are going to revive some of that storytelling tradition and explore the significance of whisky to the Scottish identity whilst tying in some great tales taken from across Scotland.

At the end of the tour we hope you will have a much deeper understanding of Scottish culture and the important role that whisky can play in it.  There is often live music in the bar and if you are keen to sample more whisky the Waverley Pub is well stocked with whiskys from around the world though we see little reason to drink whisky from anywhere other than Scotland.
