Our Scotland reviewer Blythe Robertson drops in on The Port of Leith Distillery for his latest review.

The Port of Leith Distillery, with its innovative vertical design, recently landed in Edinburgh’s ever-vibrant Leith neighbourhood.

It plays host to a smart bar restaurant which serves as a destination eating and drinking experience, as well as a welcome conclusion for those touring the production space.

Cocktails are elegantly rendered, whisky flights are approachable, the Table Whisky is a revelation, and there’s a strong sense that the place has been carefully crafted to hit high notes with a broad audience.

The distillery will attract international interest, so it’s heartening to see such a strong bar offering at its core.

SCORE: 8/10
