Scotch is The Balmoral’s new signature whisky bar offering the largest collection of Scottish whiskies available to the general public in Edinburgh.
Over 400 whiskies from Speyside, Islay, Campbeltown, the Highlands and the Lowlands, are available in a variety of blends, malts and vintages dating back to 1940.
Scotch’s collection of exclusively Scottish whisky is overseen by three highly trained Whisky Ambassadors who are on hand to offer guests advice whether you are a whisky novice or a whisky connoisseur.
Every dram is served with a selection of bar snacks including smoked almonds, wild boar salami and dark Swiss chocolate, selected to compliment the wide variety of whisky flavours on offer. A menu of contemporary Scottish dishes, designed by The Balmoral’s Executive Chef Jeff Bland, also offers guests a taste of the finest local produce in SCOTCH.
The new Olga Polizzi-designed bar, features a palate of whisky coloured tones creating a warm, intimate ambience in which to discover Scotland’s national drink. The centre piece of the room - a hand-crafted oak panelled whisky cabinet – is complimented by interior furnishings in natural fabrics such as wool, cord and leather.
A brushed brass and black granite bar featuring back-lit artwork by artist Hubertus Hohenlohe, creates a striking sense of theatre in the room which contrasts with golden and chocolate velvet armchairs, neutral tweed sofas and amber coloured walls.
