Whisky Month Edinburgh May 2017 - The Real Mary King’s Close ‘Cask Is King’ Tour

This coming May, to celebrate Whisky month, historic Edinburgh attraction The Real Mary King’s Close is launching ‘Cask Is King’, an exciting new experience for the budding whisky connoisseur.

Every Thursday evening this May a limited number of guests will be guided through the dark streets of he Real Mary King’s Close where they will enjoy a dram with a difference. From the humble beginnings of brewing ale to whisky and its many medicinal uses through to global appreciation, this bespoke tour tells the story of whisky you never knew. Throughout the journey you will enjoy an authentic historical experience which will take you beyond books and bus tours, including 3 samples and stories from the experts, topping off the evening with a whisky cocktail which has been created especially for The Real Mary King’s Close!

The tour combines Scotland’s best known exports of whisky and history, this specialist tour blends two must do experiences; whisky tasting and our capital’s fascinating history. Guests will travel back in time through the underground closes of Mary King’s Close as they uncover the incredible story of not only Edinburgh but also Scotland’s national drink.

The tour will also see the launch of The Real Mary King’s Close blend. Bottled at 40% ABV, they tell me that this exclusive expression is mellow on the nose with a well-integrated aroma and a fruity top note. The taste is smooth with a citric note and a thread of smoke and butterscotch, with a spicy warming finish. Presented in a bespoke bottle which is decorated with The Real Mary King’s Close tartan, the malt is available in 50ml and 200ml, retailing at £5.95 and £18.50 respectively. A great souvenir for anyone visiting Edinburgh or a treat for whisky fans.

Pre-Booking is strongly recommended as places are limited, tickets are priced at £35, tours are taking place every Thursday in May at 9.15pm, advance booking is highly recommended. Tickets are priced at £35 per ticket and can be purchased online at www.realmarykingsclose.com, by phone on 0131 225 0672 or in person at The Real Mary King’s Close.
