Holyrood Distillery is in an historic Edinburgh location. 

The area is rooted in the capital’s heritage of brewing and distilling thanks to its excellent water source - a network of underground springs that became known as the ‘charmed circle’. It is housed within an 184-year-old Category-B Listed former Victorian railway building which has been renovated and extended. 

The building was previously a goods warehouse for St Leonard’s Station, the terminus of Edinburgh’s first railway, the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway.


With a multitude of tours available, you'll be able to savour any aspect of the distillery that takes your fancy.
