To celebrate Whisky Month in Scotland we have teamed up with Royal Mile Whiskies to launch a brand new tour experience, The Perfect Blend.
The Perfect Blend is a unique whisky tasting evening combining Scotland’s most iconic exports, history and whisky. This tour will take you back in time as you uncover Edinburgh’s incredible hidden history whilst getting to grips with the national drink.
During the evening you will enjoy five drams of whisky that have been specially selected by experts from Royal Mile Whiskies (multiple winner of Whisky Magazine’s Retailer of the Year award) and complement the historic setting of Mary King’s Close. Savour peaty drams which will transport you to the west coast of Scotland or find yourself doing the work of a noser as you uncover the different components of a blend.
Each nip of whisky will be accompanied by a sample of award winning organic, craft chocolate from local suppliers Chocolate Tree. Taste how this combination of flavours works together to enhance the subtle nuances of each specially selected whisky, from Madagascan Sambriano 72% dark chocolate to sea salt and caramel, each craft chocolate has been chosen to being out the individuality of the whiskies. As the chocolate and whisky combine, you will experience the flavours transform on your palate.
