See the bats fly overhead as you stroll down our walkway en route to sip your dream drams in the Grade II listed Coal House. Following your complimentary cocktail, we will take you on a tour of diverse Scottish whiskies, explaining what flavours they have and why. After an introduction into flavour balancing and some interesting combinations, we will invite you to create three of your own blends to enjoy during the rest of our Burns night festivities.


Come in from the cold and titillate your tastebuds with this unique experience. We’ll be offering a carefully selected range of whiskies for you: from the highlands to the lowlands, from Islay to Edinburgh (plus a few surprises), you’ll have all the tools you need to create something special.


The ticket price includes snacks and a beautiful cocktail on arrival to get you ready for the fun ahead.
