You’d need a gantry the length of a very long gantry at a gantry exhibition to show most of the whiskies available today, so let’s just say we do our best to cover the bases with a great selection from all 6 Scottish Malt Whisky regions, some wonderful luxury blended whiskies plus a few overseas belters (I know – just don’t be afraid).
We’ve got a fair number which are listed in “101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die” by Ian Buxton. Give it a wee read whilst you’re here (or even purchase a copy from us) and see and taste what he’s talking about.

We’re delighted to have PERONI as our house draught lager. It’s pretty fabulous stuff – a premium lager with true Italian style.
We also have Guinness on the surger system – it’s pretty damn close to draught and always fresh.
Bottled beers include Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted Golden Ale from Alva, Inveralmond Brewery Ossian Golden Ale from Perth, Bellhaven 80′ from Dunbar, Caledonian Deuchars IPA and the rather stunning Innis & Gunn Oak Aged small batch beer, both from Edinburgh.
Now listen up – if you’re in alcohol free mode, (designated driver or early morning start) don’t worry – it’s not just soda & lime any more. We have 3 bottled beer options – Krombacher Pils, Becks Blue and Brew Dog Nanny State on offer – all really great alternatives. Trust us – alcohol free beers ain’t what they used to be.
