Scotch Whisky in the Heart of Edinburgh
As you would expect, our traditional Scottish bar in the heart of Edinburgh has a decent selection of whiskies. This includes a wide range of single malts from Campbeltown to Speyside, along with traditional Scottish blended whiskies like Johnnie Walker Red, Green and Black label perched cheek by jowl with other well-known brands such as Crabbie from Leith, The Famous Grouse and Shackleton. Then we have the newcomers – like Naked Grouse, The Woodsman and of course Crabbie’s Yardhead which are excellent on their own, with a mixer or as a key component in a Scotch Old-Fashioned.
Not sure which one to try first? Our bartenders will happily help you choose the right malt or blended whisky for you.
Gin production has increased tremendously in the last few years and there’s no sign yet of it slowing down. At the Thistle Street Bar, we’re proud to showcase a range of Scottish Gins, each one with its own special balance of botanicals to complement the juniper.
Choose from our local selection including Edinburgh Gin, Pickerings or Holyrood Gin; or venture further afield and try The Botanist from Islay, Kerr’s from the Scottish Borders or Isle of Harris gin which is infused with hand-dived sea kelp.
We’re also proud to serve Gordon’s and Tanqueray gins, recognised to be among the finest London Dry gins in the world, distilled right here in Scotland. Whatever your taste, we’ll have a Scottish gin for you.
