Edinburgh tasting on a canal barge 18.8.13

Postby jmrl » Sun Aug 04, 2013 12:03 pm

Sunday 18th August 6pm - 8pm £18/15* Lochrin Basin, Edinburgh - "The Whisky History of Edinburgh" on a barge along the Union Canal.

Four drams with an Edinburgh theme: Vat 69 (bottled in the 1970s) 40%, North British grain 1997 - 2012 43%, 1986 Glen Kinchie Distillers Edition (sherry cask finished) 43% bottled in 2000, Auld Reekie, 46% peaty dram. (if it's a sell out we can upgrade the North British to a Caledonian - if I can find one!)

As the festival commandeers practically all venues in Edinburgh I thought we could take to the water on a Re-union barge for a short trip along the canal while sipping some Edinburgh themed whiskies to a talk about the distilling and blending story of the capital - includes a short written history.
