EXPLORE TWO OF SCOTLAND’S MOST FASCINATING PLACES (WITHOUT LEAVING HOME)
We’re taking a virtual trip to the two cities that inspired our Artist Blend and Glasgow Blend whiskies. And we’d love you to join the adventure. Edinburgh and Glasgow are packed full of amazing sights, tastes and experiences, so this month two of our whiskymakers, Jill Boyd and James Saxon, both with close ties to the cities, will be sharing insider recommendations. Here’s a flavour of what to expect...
GLASGOW. VIBRANT, BOLD
AND CHARMINGLY SOCIAL
A mischievous city, a melting pot of edgy comedy and, thanks to The Barrowlands, home of one of the most treasured music venues in the UK. Find excitement in a nerve-jangling view from the Finnieston Crane, an antiques hunt at The Barras or a salted honey ring from Tantrum Doughnuts – a city just as versatile as our Glasgow Blend.
EDINBURGH. INSPIRING, INQUISITIVE AND DELIGHTFULLY ARTISTIC
Descend from the now-extinct volcano Arthur's Seat and its breath-taking views into a city brimming with creative energy that almost bubbles over during festival season. From the National Monument atop Calton Hill, inspired by the Parthenon in Athens, to must-see sculptures at Jupiter Artland, it’s a true entertainer – just like Artist Blend.
