The Scotch Whisky Experience celebrates 25 years
Edinburgh's top Whisky visitor attraction, The Scotch Whisky Experience, celebrated 25 years in the capital recently with the unveiling of a specially-designed commemorative Quaich.
The Quaich has been designed and handcrafted by luxury Edinburgh jeweller and silversmiths, Hamilton & Inches, and will go on display at The Scotch Whisky Experience for the remainder of the year.
The highly ornate, one-off piece has been created to mark the milestone and features an elaborately
designed lid, set with a 275 carat citrene stone and gold plating on the inside.
Home to the world's largest collection of Scotch whisky, The Scotch Whisky Experience is celebrating its silver anniversary this year with a number of events, including the launch of a limited-edition 25 Years
Old blend and the creation of an alumni group, to help chart the history of the attraction and the people behind its success.
Susan Morrison, director and general manager of The Scotch Whisky Experience, said: “Quaichs and whisky have gone hand-in-hand for hundreds of years, so we are pleased to mark our silver anniversary with this exquisite piece of work. The team at Hamilton & Inches understood what we were looking for in the piece and the results are truly stunning.
“The Quaich will go on public display for the rest of 2013 and we hope it proves as popular with our visitors as our record breaking collection of Scotch whisky.”
