What you'll do

We meet on the iconic Royal Mile by the eminent Scottish thinker and drinker Adam Smith. It is then a short walk to one excellent whisky bar that we use. We have the entire upstairs area reserved for us, ensuring lots of space for the group. During the course of two hours we will sample four outstanding Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the four major whisky producing regions of Scotland. We will discus some of the history of Scotland and explore the reasons as to why whisky is now so ingrained as a staple of Scottish culture and we have some great tales from Scotland and the world of whisky to share with you.

Whisky is the spirit of Scotland. Whisky is about the coming together of people, whether it be sharing a warming dram on a long winters night or celebrating with a wee dram at a wedding. Both Luca and I work as guides in Edinburgh and set up Little Fish Tours back in 2016. We are all about bringing people together and showing them not just the best sites of Edinburgh but also sharing a little in the culture of Scotland. What better way to immerse yourself in Scottish culture than to sit down with a local and share a whisky or four whilst listening to some great Scottish tales?

Where you'll be

Our regular venue is the enchanting Waverley Bar, something of an institution in Edinburgh and is famous within the folk music scene. The entire upper floor of the bar is reserved for us, giving us plenty of space and privacy for our story orientated evening. This is our usual space but particularly during peak seasons we have several back up venues. Regardless of the venue the most important part of this tour is sharing good whisky and stories.

Really great experience and definitely not just for whisky drinkers! The story telling was amazing too! I was feeling a little fragile on the day of the tasting but still had a great time and there was lots of opportunities to change to soft drinks ect. Host was very knowledgeable and charismatic! Will definitely be doing this again when we have guests staying in Edinburgh!

The talk was great and really entertaining. I'm not a massive whisky fan but the drams that we were offered were really tasty and Luca walked us through the whole tasting experience brilliantly. Well told stories and whisky origin, this was a great way to spend an afternoon in Edinburgh

This was such a fun experience! Luca is super knowledgeable about whiskey and is able to give fantastic recommendations based on what you like and stores around town where you can purchase bottles. Luca was also really nice and shared some fantastic stories.

Luca is an excellent story teller and an impressive historical orator. I learned a lot and enjoyed my tour. The Waverley was a fitting spot to pass some time too. I will definitely consider one of Ben and Luca’s other Little Fish Tours during my stay. Thanks Luca!
