In light of the new restrictions announced by The Scottish Government this week, restaurants and pubs in Edinburgh will be closed from Friday 9 October at 6pm.

We are highlighting some of the businesses which you can patronise by enjoying their food at home. If you have an Edinburgh business and would like to be featured here then get in touch.

Opened in 2019, Holyrood Distillery is the first single malt whisky distillery in the heart of Edinburgh for almost 100 years.

The newly launched Courtyard bar has to shut this Friday for two weeks, however the popular distillery tours will still be going ahead with social distancing measures in place. The distillery will continue with its collection and home delivery service, offering a range of packages including the Picnic gin package. 

The distillery is also still giving whisky lovers the chance to “find your flavour” with its custom-made whisky programme.  Samples can be delivered, and consultations conducted online to work with the Master Distiller and to select the malted barley, yeast, size, and type of oak cask, to create a bespoke single malt whisky just for you. Whether you like to smoke, sherry, fruity, sweet, or spicy styles, they will help you find your flavour.
