Join us for a Whisky Galore screening!

There is no point in hiding it, we have just commissioned a new website for Edinburgh Whisky Blog! As some of you know we’ve been meaning to do this for ages but made a mistake of wanting to have it done for free. It just never happened. Now we’re getting pros to do their magic. But as Edinburgh Whisky Blog is a strictly non-profit venture, we don’t really have any money to pay for it. This is where our access to great venues and whiskies and your thirst for both come into play. We will be organising 2-3 big events in Edinburgh throughout November and December. Various formats, venues and spins but one ultimate goal – to raise money for the new blog while giving you the best possible value for money in terms of fun times and great whisky.

We will kick off with a screening of the 1947 classic Scottish film – Whisky Galore. It’s happening on 14th November from 7pm in the White Horse Bar on Cannongate. For a mere £10 you can enjoy the film in an excellent company and taste 3 amazing whiskies! Add another £4.50 if you want a large portion of haggis or stovies. Chat about the whiskies and the film will be provided… if you want!

Not only is this event a great value for money and shaping up to be a ridiculous night out, it’s also a great way to show your support to the blog if you read us from the capital or nearby (those of you reading from far far away, don’t fret, we will give you a chance to show your support too!).

To book your seat at the screening, please email or ‘attend’ the Facebook event. Please spread the word.

Big thanks to Whyte & Mackay Master Blender Richard Paterson for the plug.

  1. We had a showing of Whisky Galore at two of our clubs in Brisbane. One of our members comes from Eriskay and has a ‘souvenir” from a certain ship (no not a bottle sadly). He loves to give an account of what his relatives told him about the Cabinet Minister. Both nights were fantastic. We’ve decided to hold a yearly film night. Next year its “Local Hero”.

  2. Cool stuff! What kind of stuff do you taste on the nights in Brisbane?

  3. We’ve gone through quite a range over the years. For example at the City Club last week we had Glentauchers 15, Glen Keith 10, Glenturret 10, Hammerhead and Big Peat. We’ve had Australian nights and an Asian night – Hakushu 10 – very nice,and a Glenfarclas vertical. Have you tried Lark or Sullivan’s Cove (Port Cask is a ripper)? Got a Rosebank night coming up (well 3 out of the five – got to end with a Peaty Smoky). We’ve gone through all the commonly available drams.

  4. Wow, you get your hands on some pretty unusual stuff! I reckon a Rosebank tasting is going to be pretty interesting. I haven’t had a Glentauchers or a Glen Keith in quite a while.

    We haven’t tried Sullivans Cove, but we have just got our hands on some of Lark’s Stuff:

    I think we are going to see more and more of Mr Lark’s stuff over here, as he has a Scottish Distributor now.

  5. He’s got a very interesting way of peating his whiskies. Haven’t tried one of his more peated drams yet but really looking forward to seeing if there are some distinctive characteristics.

  6. You’re able to go for about the wholesale louis vuitton baggage on the net shop Coach Outlet
