Usquabae Whisky Bar & Larder Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s vibrant West End, offers an unrivalled selection of Scotch whisky in an elegant and relaxed setting. Inspired by Robert Burns’ poem, “Tam O’ Shanter”, we firmly believe the pursuit of drinking whisky is a saintly and noble quest. Burns himself claimed that should you meet the devil, you’ll only survive if you’re fortified with usquabae. We take this belief very seriously. With this in mind, we encourage you to visit us and experience for yourself the ‘spiritual’ side of our national drink. If you already consider yourself saintly enough, we also offer a range of speciality gins, vodkas, rums, and other spirits as well as a wide-ranging wine list and bespoke cocktail menu.
With over 400 whiskies to choose from at Usquabae Whisky Bar & Larder, our collection contains a dram to suit every palate. Each bottle has been hand-selected based on its exceptional quality and unique flavour profile. Ranging from iconic, world-leading brands such as Glenfiddich and The Glenlivet, to unique single cask bottlings from long-closed distilleries such as Rosebank and Port Ellen, our variety is unparalleled. Fancy sampling something from the swinging sixties? Sure thing. Keen to try something which pre-dates The Beatles? Absolutely. Want to taste something distilled prior to, or during, World War II? No problem.
At Usquabae Whisky Bar & Larder we believe excellent drinks should be sipped alongside exceptional cuisine. Our menu reflects the natural quality and variety of Scotland’s larder, with each dish carefully crafted and prepared to the highest standard by our team of dedicated chefs. Our current menu can be found below, along with suggested whisky pairings which compliment each dish.
