Attractions and Tours

Edinburgh has a long history with distilling and brewing. Once the largest brewery in Europe stood in Fountainbridge and Leith had whisky bond warehouses everywhere. All now gone. There are still a number of distilleries and micro breweries in Edinburgh  and soon Edinburgh is to have the Johnnie Walker Experience on Princes Street Diageo's flagship visitor centre. Another recent addition in Edinburgh is Holyrood Distillery which started distilling again after almost 100 years.
