The Grand Whisky Pub Stay (and crawl home)


What Ho! To those of you who came along and had the best time with us drinking free whisky: danke schön!

To those of you who instead of free whisky chose to go to a musical: really? We waited for you and then waited more and more and instead of a pub crawl ended up doing a pub stay… which was just as well actually.

Despite the unforeseen competition (free tickets to ‘We Will Rock You’ left right and centre) the attendance was great, everyone got to try all the whiskies: Glengoyne 12, Benromach 10, Orkney 11 (Movember bottling) and Arran Peacock. We loved them all so thank you very much, distillers!

Big thank you to guys from Master of Malt for supplying two bottles of Movember special, one to drink and one to raffle off for charity. We raised £70 and even managed not to spend it on booze on the night! All the money goes straight to Movember. For the record it was Andreas who won the thing (and also, personal hero of mine that he is, managed not to drink it straight away!).

Cheers to guys from Glenfiddich for doing a few rounds of mini vertical tastings for us through the back.

And last but not least a big thank you to The Albanach staff and management. You were great as always, you are the best whisky bar in Edinburgh and you certainly have a lot of patience!
