Lovers of Scotland's national drink can enjoy a free dram on World Whisky Day, with the compliments of Edinburgh's Cannonball Restaurant & Bar.
The Royal Mile favourite has teamed up with Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky to run an open-house whisky tasting on Saturday 20 May. From 1–5pm, guests can drop in for a tutored sampling of the Glengoyne 10 and 12 Year Old.
In addition, the kitchen will be serving up several whisky-inspired dishes to those who wish to book for lunch or dinner, including haggis Cannonballs with Glengoyne 10 Year Old cream, Inverurie beef with whisky sauce, and tipsy ice cream.
Cannonball Restaurant & Bar Located at the very top of The Royal Mile, in the impressive shadow of Edinburgh Castle, Cannonball House is a three-storey eating and drinking experience. One of Edinburgh's oldest recorded buildings, the name comes from the cannonball shot lodged in the wall facing the castle.
Offering a selection of over 120 of the finest malt whiskies, including the full Glengoyne and Tamdhu collections, and a contemporary menu of lunch meals and light bites, Cannonball Bar is the perfect place to soak up the electric atmosphere of Edinburgh.
