UISGE BEATHA

Whisky Tasting

Join us in our very own Highland Bothy for a luxurious private whisky tasting experience. We Brewhemians are big fans of the ‘water of life’ and you’ll find an expansive collection of bottles behind our bar. Our resident whisky connoisseurs are also on hand with enthusiastic guidance throughout your session.

Rabbie spent his later life in the highlands residing in a mountain Bothy, absorbing the food, nature and above all the Uisge Beatha, the water of life. The whisky runs through the highlands, lowlands and islands, giving flavour, aroma and colour – the essence of Scotland.

Whisky is, of course, renowned across the world as Scotland’s National drink. As such, there’s nowhere better to explore Uisce Beatha than the very heart of Edinburgh Old Town. We’re perfectly placed across from the station too, and our tasting sessions certainly make a perfect day out in the City.

Each whisky tasting experience accommodates flavour profiles and palates. Our whiskies are also grouped to complement each other and intended to enjoy at your leisure. So, dip into our food menu and sip your way through a starter, main & dessert. Or, simply enjoy them all at once…the choice is yours.
