Looking to enjoy some whisky during the Edinburgh Festival? Look no further, as we have a busy few weeks of events and sampling, and we would love to see you at some of these events.
Royal Mile Whiskies Whisky Fringe (11th, 12th and 13th of August)
One of the best whisky events, Whisky Fringe sells out each year in about 20 seconds, so well done to those who got tickets. If you are lucky enough to be going, we look forward to seeing you there. We will be pouring Raasay While We Wait, Borders Highland Grain Whisky and a preview of our newest whisky; Tweeddale 28 Year Old Evolution.
Held in the wonderful Mansfield Traquair, if you can get a ticket (somehow) definitely head along.

The A Club with Arbikie Vodka (Tuesday 15th of August)
We are proud to announce we will be hosting a tasting evening at the magnificent A Club at Merchant House on Hanover Street (another brilliant venue!). Tickets are £20, and will include 4 R&B drams, a full breakdown of the whiskies with our team, and tickets to the Arbikie Game of Drones Pipers afterwards. Get tickets here.
Scotch Whisky Experience (19th, 26th and 27th of August)
Our new distiller Iain Robertson will be doing a sampling on the 19th of August at his old Employer The Scotch Whisky Experience. Come along, do the brilliant Scotch Whisky Experience tour, and have a chat to him afterwards about the distillery plans, and how he has found adjusting since his move from Edinburgh to Raasay. We also have two more tasting days with myself, Alasdair and Zoe on the 26th and 27th of August. Scotch Whisky Experience Sampling Days
