Wine, Whisky, Beer or Gin Tastings
What wets your taste buds? At Gilmerton we can offer wine tasting, whisky tasting, craft beer tasting or gin tasting.
Tastings are always popular with our visitors, and a wonderful way to wind down after an afternoon of frantic activities.
Our General Manager, Tom Wellwood, is a passionate Sommelier (an Oneoligist!), and has even represented Scotland in a national Sommelier competition. He also has more than a passing knowledge of gin, having been involved in the early days of North Berwick Gin, and served his time at Knops Brewery, an East Lothian craft brewery.
Perfect ambience for tutored tastings
Enjoy the ambience of our 1655 oak-lined, Rococo Music Room and learn from the tutored guidance of Tom or another expert. And, we’ll soon be opening up our ancient wine cellars to add a certain ‘je ne se quoi’!
Experience a tutored whisky tasting for your team building, incentive event, private party or stag party. Learn what separates Speyside, Island and Lowland whiskies and what makes them distinctive.
You can also arrange a dinner with a tutored food and wine matching or even food and craft beer matching.
