First look into Edinburgh's first city centre single malt whisky distillery since 1925
Those travelling to Edinburgh in the hopes of a wee dram with modern character are in for a treat as Holyrood Distillery opens the first single malt whisky distillery in the city centre in almost a century.
The £6.7 million distillery has breathed new life into what was formerly the goods shed for St Leonards railway station, dating back to 1831. It is now a colourful and sensory experience for spirits lovers of all levels of expertise.
Holyrood Distillery is the notion of Canadian whisky enthusiast Rob Carpenter who, in 2013, first had the idea for a distillery and visitor experience in central Edinburgh.
