Year Founded

Barrel Head


Holyrood, the first whisky distillery in Edinburgh in nearly a century, has breathed new life into a 180-year-old building that once served as the goods shed for St Leonard's railway station. With a commitment to shaping the future of whisky, Holyrood draws inspiration from the vibrant and diverse city of Edinburgh. The distillery's founders envisioned a modern approach to whisky-making, reflecting the contrasts and dynamism of the city, from its historic old town to its contemporary neighborhoods and natural surroundings. Holyrood's identity and production pay homage to the unique landscape and spirit of Edinburgh, making it a truly distinctive addition to the whisky scene.
