Vaults Tour and Whisky Tasting for one, Edinburgh
- Explore the history of the famous Blair Street Underground Vaults
- Witness the unaltered conditions in which real people lived & worked!
- Includes tasting 4 whiskies
Enjoy this exclusive experience which will take you through the shadowy closes and wynds, and deep into the Blair Street Underground Vaults. Then retire to Megget’s cellar and enjoy a candlelit whisky tasting.
This unique tour is not for the faint-hearted but will take you on a fascinating journey through the most extensive set of Underground Vaults open to the public in Edinburgh. Your cloaked guide will lead your group through the perpetual gloom of the Old Town’s closes and wynds, spinning true tales of gruesome crimes and cruel punishments – and of the ghosts that still cling to these ancient walls.
Built in the 18th century and rediscovered in the 1980s, the vaults are Edinburgh’s most famous haunted site. Watch for the change in temperature, the damp air, and an uneasy chill as you descend further into the gloom.
The tour finishes with a sample whisky tasting in candlelit Megget’s Cellar. There’s no better way to warm the spirits after this chilling tour. You’ll taste four Scottish whiskies under the guidance of a specialist. They will cover everything you need to know about the water of life; from how whisky is made to the effects that different elements such as water, barley, peat have during the maturation process. Nose and taste your way through four regions, with single malts from Speyside, Highlands and Islay and one single grain whisky.
An amazing Scottish experience to enjoy in the centre of Edinburgh.
