It's International Whisky Month! And, to celebrate, The Real Mary King’s Close has announced a new partnership with local whisky expert and retailer Jeffery Street Whisky. Scotland’s Best Heritage Tourism Experience will run a late night whisky tour - A King’s Dram - every Friday and Saturday throughout May.

A King’s Dram is a unique whisky tasting experience that takes place in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Delving into Scotland’s most iconic export, the tour uncovers the secrets of Edinburgh’s illicit stills, and explores over 400 years of whisky production in Scotland.

Guests will journey back in time and follow in the footsteps of former residents, learn why Mary King’s Close was at the centre of a thriving and bustling trade, and get to grips with the national drink.

This 1.5 hour experience includes a unique tour of the preserved rooms, streets and spaces of The Real Mary King’s Close. The team from Jeffery Street Whisky will lead guests through a tasting of five specially selected drams; each highlighting the diverse nature of whisky from across Scotland.
