Whisky journeys at SCOTCH, The Balmoral

The Balmoral, on Edinburgh’s famous Prince’s Street, is launching a selection of whisky tastings – offering the experience of sampling a range of fine Scottish Whiskies in the presence of a knowledgeable whisky ambassador.


Perfect pairing: whiskeys to appeal to all

From February 2014, the Balmoral’s newly opened signature bar, SCOTCH, which boasts over 400 whiskies – the largest collection of Scottish whiskies available to the general public in Edinburgh, will offer four whisky journeys around the themes of region, finish, age and rarity. Each journey includes four or five drams and has been designed by a SCOTCH whisky ambassador to appeal to all those with an appreciation of Scotland’s most famous spirit, from novices to connoisseurs.

A selection of accompaniments including smoked almonds, wild boar salami, dark Swiss chocolate and Scottish blue cheese have selected to bring out the flavours in the whisky and a variety of Uisge Source waters will also be served. The paired waters, sourced from each main whisky region complement the whisky and offer guests the opportunity to ‘open up’ their dram and fully appreciate the complex aromas and flavours of the whisky.

Whisky journeys at SCOTCH range from £35 per person to £105 per person and must be booked in advance. SCOTCH’s whisky journeys are also available for groups, with exclusive use of the bar and a dedicated whisky ambassador included for groups of 15 to 25 people.

For further information please contact the bar directly via email, or your Insignia Lifestyle Boutique personal assistant.
