More Information

Scotland is a land famous for many wonderful things. Sean Connery, deep-fried pizza, and of course fine Scotch whisky. When in Scotland do as the Scots do and experience the sights, sounds, and smells of Scotch whisky on our great 2 hour VIP whisky tour and tasting.

On arrival, you will be welcomed in fine Scottish tradition with a wee dram of blended whisky, what else. This will help set the tone for a fun-filled day ahead for the lads. Next, enjoy a fully guided private tour of the replica whisky heritage facility which includes a tutored tasting of a single malt. The attraction which brings 300 years of Scotch Whisky history to life, is a fun experience, which will increase your knowledge and enjoyment of Scotland’s Whiskies.

Along the way, you will enjoy a swirling, bubbling barrel ride through a replica distillery as you become part of the whisky-making process. You will discover the background to Scotland’s national drink. You are then guided through the tasting by our professionally-trained staff in one of our private function rooms. You’ll hear the stories behind this magical craft, with expert tour guides and whisky advisors with you every sip of the way. You’ll discover the aromas and flavours that appeal to your palate and lead you to your perfect Single Malt Whisky.

All of our Standard Tours include:
Whisky barrel ride through the production of Scotch whisky
Introduction to the aromas in whisky
Viewing of the World’s largest collection of Scotch whisky
Gift of crystal whisky tasting glass (adults and concessions only)
Audio guide available (20 languages)
Enjoy a dram of single malt or blended Scotch whisky – you choose!

Our Deluxe Tour also includes:
– 4x regional single malts PLUS our Silver Tour
– Membership of our Scotch Whisky Appreciation Society (1 year)
– Discounts within our bar, restaurant, and shop within the membership year
Please note that this tour is strictly for those aged 18 years and over

Groups can also upgrade to include a Sensory Perception Quiz in our VIP Lounge.  This helps break the ice and raise the team spirit.  There are prizes for the most accurate answers to an aroma test. Our whisky expert then shows your guests how to nose and taste four single malt whiskies from each of Scotland’s four main Whisky-producing regions: Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, and Islay.  Guests are tutored through the five stages of appreciating Scotch Whisky: colour, body, nose, palate, and finish. The Whiskies chosen illustrate regional differences, wood finishes, differing ages of maturation, and methods of production.  At the end of the event, you will receive a miniature of whisky and a whisky glass. Enough said!.

If you take Irn Bru in your whisky this is not the tour for you.

5-star review of edinburghstag.com:
We did the Mini Highland Games and also the Paintballing through John at Edinburgh Stag & Hen Do Co. Both things went off without a hitch and the travel to and fro was perfectly on time. We also booked the accommodation on Gilmore Pl. With 18 fellas on the trip the accommodation had it's own key pad systems for each room and for the front door! No need to be bothering anyone about lost keys etc.

Highly Recommended!
We booked the Highland games followed by a whiskey tasting and it was fantastic! The day went seamlessly, we were picked up from where we requested by a minivan and then taken to the games which were run by a fantastic instructor, then back to the centre where we had the whiskey tasting. John was quick to respond, easy to get in touch with and organised everything we needed for a great day. He went above and beyond with recommendations on places to go and eat/drink too, would highly recommend anyone wanting to book a stag do in Edinburgh to use him! Thank you!

What a fantastic day. We did the mini Highland games for my sister’s hen. Everyone absolutely loved it. Everything was well organised and it was a right laugh and we got to try lots of different activities. This suited our group as we had mix ages and one member of the group was pregnant so people were able to sit out certain activities if they didn’t feel up to it. Was lovely getting out of the city for a while and we got a stunning day for it. Thank you all again for such a great experience. We will definitely recommend this to friends.

The Mini Highland games were so much fun! The stag group I was with had a great time and really thought it was the highlight of our weekend-long trip to Edinburgh. The drive out from Edinburgh was just over an hour and our large group of 12 people meant that we had about 2 hours at the farm taking part in the games, which was well worth it. The setting was great and we really leant into the team spirit - as well as insulting each other all through the event, which really got everyone laughing. Really really great time. Highly recommend!

Excellent. John was great from the get-go, quick to respond, and very easy to get in touch with. As soon as the stag group stopped messing around with what they wanted to do John immediately gave me a price and got it all booked. A few weeks prior we had another couple of latecomers. This didn't pose a problem and John made the changes to the booking.

The day itself was fantastic. The bus driver picked us up at the time and place arranged and got us to the mini Highland Games. This was great fun and I would definitely do it again. Petrol karts to follow were a hit with the guys a certainly worth it.

Highly recommend-- a PERFECT day =)
We searched for something that would be fun for all ages for a pre-wedding event. There were 10 of us (aged 30-80) and Bert at the Clay Pigeon Shooting Range was absolutely phenomenal. He made sure all of us were able to hit some of the targets (no matter how terrible we were to start). Such an amazing instructor. Thank you to John for arranging and Bert for making a perfect day out!

Edinburgh Stag took all the pressure…
Edinburgh Stag took all the pressure and stress out of organising my son’s stag do. John was extremely helpful, giving me a few options to suit my budget. We had 3 activities book. John had a backup plan in case of unseen problems. Their accommodation in the city centre catered for the 14 person party. More than enough space as the property could sleep over 30. Clean and comfortable. A definite 10/10 from me!
