    This Cadenhead shop was on my bucket-list during my visit to Scotland in July 2018. It is a "wee" shop where the standard bottlings you will find in any other shop are not shown. Tourist who simply drop by, leave immediately, but then they miss the real value of the shop:

    - Great Cadenhead collection (shown on the board)

    - Friendly and knowledgeable staff

    - Possibility to taste the whisky you want to buy

    - Better prices then in Dutch shops


    For sure I will be back during a next occasion.

    Does not look like much from the outside, like an old shop with some musty bottles in the window, but the magic awaits inside. They specialise in own bottlings and carry some lovely wares from Campbelltown. The staff are extremely friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and generous with samples every time I have been. It's definately the best whisky shop in Edinburgh, not disparaging the competition, but having visited 5 or 6 times, it is the go to place for some great whiskies. Highly recommended.

    Like going into an old book shop, not your slick over priced tourist whisky shop you find in Edinburgh, friendly staff, free samples and most importantly of all excellent whisky.
