Another coalition of whisky bars in Edinburgh has been formed to promote the bars in Edinburgh where staff are trained and offer a good selection of whisky:
WHISKI has one of the best selections of malts and whiskies in Edinburgh with over 250 to choose from, many rare and vintage malts – give us a visit
WHISKI is part of a new website called http://www.whiskytrailbars.com/ which lists the best whisky bars in Scotland. The brainchild of renound “master of malt” John Lamond, it aims to give visitors to Scotland an unbiased pointer towards the best places to sample our national drink, whisky. The bars cover the whole spectrum of Scotland and offer a varied portfolio of establishments – WHISKI is pleased to be listed as one of these establishments and if you are in Edinburgh – give us a visit …
We were so pleased to have been nominated as one of the two best specialist whisky bars in the UK and we dually headed down to London for the awards cermony. We knew the SPECIALIST BAR awards had 4 categories : RUM, VODKA, TEQUILLA and WHISKY – each with two nominations and these awards covered the whole of the UK so we were very pleased to have made the top two whisky bars. However, on the night WHISKY lost out to the TEQUILLA category which won the day – never mind, there is always next year.
The awards were great, pushing 1000 people were there from all over the country but I would say very London dominated – free cocktails, wine, meal and then dancing into the small hours if you wanted – we headed back close to our hotel after the ceremony as we know how hard it can be getting a taxi after midnight, found a great late night restaurant in Covent Garden and just had a fab time.
Verdict : very pleased with our finalist status and nomination, London break was simply fabulous and vey glad we went !
We were HIGHLY COMMENDED in this award and are delighted. We had a really great time at the awards in Glasgow and we did take some photos so they will be up here once I locate them.
