Deepen your whisky knowledge

No other whisky bar takes their patrons from whisky novice to whisky devotee the way Amber does. Our bar is illuminated for superior observation. Our welcoming and highly trained advisors are on hand to help drinkers find a dram that is perfect for them, and this personal element can be supplemented by distillery information provided via a touch screen (translated into 20 languages). Whisky can also be expertly paired with our renowned Scottish tapas if desired.

Adding to their wealth of previous industry experience, our whisky advisors receive a great deal of training on an ongoing basis. This includes our industry recognised Scotch Whisky Training School, educational visits to Glenkinchie and North British distilleries, and the opportunity to attend staff tastings on a weekly basis.

Whisky and cheese matching

Whisky and food are perfect partners, and Scotland's national drink goes particularly well with the flavoursome, mouth-coating qualities of cheese. Renowned Edinburgh cheesemonger Iain Mellis' superb range of Scottish artisan cheeses are the perfect partner for our 500+ selection of Scotch whiskies, and they look very much at home in our superb purpose built cheese cabinet.
