A family-owned Scotch whisky firm has launched its first collection



The family-owned company Edinburgh Whisky is producing premium Scotch whisky bottled in the city and has unveiled its inaugural “Discovery Collection”.

It brings regional single malts from across the country “rich in history and heritage” that will be followed by further releases representing a Campbeltown, Lowland and Island whisky in the collection.

The firm said: “Edinburgh has long had an association with the world of whisky, once housing more than 100 whisky warehouses and exporting spirit around the globe from the bustling port of Leith where Edinburgh Whisky is now bottled.”

Greg Urquhart of Edinburgh Whisky, who is responsible for sourcing and hand-selecting the casks which are used in the new collection, said: “We’re excited to be bringing a new energy to Edinburgh Whisky.

“The city is so entwined with Scotch and the majority of people exploring Scotland for this reason come via Edinburgh and so it felt right for Edinburgh Whisky as a brand to act as a gateway for discovering different and exciting single malts too.”

Edinburgh Whisky’s inaugural collection showcases a seven-year-old Speyside, a nine-year-old Highland Whisky and a nine-year-old Islay.
