About Johnnie Walker Princes Street

The eight-floor visitor experience for the world’s best-selling Scotch whisky opened in 2021, as the centrepiece of Diageo’s £185m investment in Scotch whisky tourism in Scotland – the largest single investment programme of its kind ever seen in the industry.

Johnnie Walker Princes Street welcomed 359,000 visitors in 2023, from 131 countries, from Andorra to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between. Part of Johnnie Walker Princes Street’s mission is to introduce Scotch whisky to potential new fans, and challenge traditional perceptions.

In addition to the Journey of Flavour tour, where visitors have their personal flavour preferences mapped with drinks tailored to their palate while exploring the 200-year history of Johnnie Walker, exclusive tours and experiences are also available all year round – including STIR, an exclusive collaboration launched with two Michelin-starred team James & Maria Close from Raby Hunt restaurant, which combines world-class cocktails with innovative cuisine.

The venue is one of the only venues in central Edinburgh that works with disabled access charity Euan’s Guide, offering lift access and low-height tables on all experiences, as well as having a Changing Places facility.

Johnnie Walker Princes Street was recently named Europe’s Leading Spirit Tourism Experience 2024 and awarded in the Outstanding Achievement for Brand Experience category in the 30th Annual Themed Entertainment Association Awards. The visitor attraction has also won a selection of awards including the five-star VisitScotland accreditation, and the Icons of Whisky award for World Visitor Attraction of the Year 2023. It opened with a Green Tourism Gold Award – the highest sustainability accolade for a visitor attraction – and later in the year, was given LEED certification for sustainability achievement and leadership.
