Cadenhead’s Whiskey Shop

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Cadenhead’s Whiskey Shop is one of the best places in the country to sample one of Scotland’s biggest exports. The shop is one of the oldest businesses on the Royal Mile (located about half way along) and is an internationally renowned institution. The building itself that houses the shop is of historical importance, so you can pretend to yourself that you are investigating an historically important part of Edinburgh’s history, when really you just want a tipple of some good quality Scottish whiskey.

The store is open Monday to Saturday from 10:30am to 5:30pm. You can also attend whiskey tasting at the store or more in depth tasting held at a local pub. In order to take part in these, you will have to ring ahead and find out when they are scheduled. These are a fun way to learn more about the honey-coloured drop and there are a number of interesting bottling styles that are available for purchase. The tasting is highly recommended.
