Whisky Drinker

The Mercat, in Edinburgh’s historic Haymarket, has opened a new dedicated whisky bar in their refurbished basement.

The bar currently stocks sixty different whiskies but have set themselves a target of 300, according to owner Graham Blaikie.

He told the Scottish Licensed Trade News: “We’re increasingly witnessing more of our local and overseas customers asking for advice and looking to try different and rarer types of Scotch whiskies…

“So in line with our recent refurbishment, we decided to complement our main bar with a new dedicated whisky bar. This allows us to cater for groups, whatever their favourite tipple is, from beer or wine to whisky.”

The new whisky bar will be launched with a tasting event on 27 September, with tickets available from the West Maitland Street outlet at £25.00 per head.
