no release the same.

no age statements.
no signature style.
no core expressions.

“We want to offer something that’s different, new, exciting and furthers the Scotch Whisky narrative. We are all very inquisitive in the production team, and it’s really liberating to work in an environment where the work culture revolves around “what if?…” and “we could do this…”, rather than “we can’t do that…”

capturing the essence of Edinburgh

Our single malt expressions are skillfully combined from different casks to ensure that each whisky tells a compelling story. Each bottle of Holyrood single malt represents a sensory exploration of Edinburgh, a journey through its diverse flavours, history, and culture.

truly unique

Through our innovative exploration of specialty and heritage malts, and yeast varieties, we have carefully crafted a diverse collection of ageing spirits with an incredibly wide range of flavours.

This diversity serves as the foundation for crafting truly one-of-a-kind single malts. By skilfully blending these uniquely nuanced spirits, we produce whiskies that go beyond the ordinary, offering a distinctive and expressive character that is greater than the sum of its individual components.

All of our whiskies are limited releases. We plan to have every whisky we create as a limited release which means we’ll never have a core expression or range. We use so many malt and yeast varieties that the flavours of our spirits are constantly changing, which means unique releases every time!
