Brand Hotel of the Year 2015 Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Launches Whisky Tasting Room

6 August 2015

The award winning Hotel Indigo Edinburgh has launched a fabulous new space to enjoy Scotland's national tipple.

The hotel’s Turquoise Thistle Bar will be offering corporate groups and leisure guests the opportunity to experience a private whisky pairing dinner or whisky tasting session for up to 14 people.

Stuart Horton, Food and Beverage Manager and whisky connoisseur for Hotel Indigo Edinburgh, has been touring distilleries for the last few years as part of his mission to source the very best drams for his guests to enjoy.

Stuart says: “We are passionate about whisky and have a selection of Scottish favourites like Glenmorangie and Ardbeg. Although we have over 70 whiskies on offer, our bar collection continues to grow; Japanese Whiskies - which have traditionally been inspired by Scotch - are becoming particularly popular and offer guests the chance to compare the Japanese styles and flavours with drams made closer to home. At the moment and we seeing real interest in the Santory Hibiki (12 yr old), Yamazaki (17 yr old) and Hakushu (17 yr old).”

The bar also offers whisky & cheese and whisky & Oyster matching experiences and even a 'whisky smoker' which adds a little bit of theatre to the authentic Scottish whisky experience!

Located within walking distance of Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle, the boutique hotel boasts 60 individually designed rooms which all offer the very best of style and comfort.

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh was recently awarded Brand Hotel of the Year 2015 at the 2015 Scottish Hotel Awards.
