Job done at whisky attraction

The newly refurbished Castlehill and Blender’s rooms represent the final stage in a six-year refurbishment programme which is said to have cost £7 million.

Carried out in conjunction with Edinburgh design agency Bright 3D, the renovation of the events suites is said to have transformed both rooms to create a “whisky inspired identity” while retaining some of the building’s original Victorian features; “top of the range” audio visual equipment was also installed.

Susan Morrison, director and general manager of The Scotch Whisky Experience, said: “Over the past few years, our events and hospitality business has shown excellent growth and is gaining an enviable reputation.

“As the culmination of our refurbishment programme, we have now brought the same high quality craftsmanship and uniqueness to our private events spaces. The finished product brings together some of the best of Scotland’s artists and designers, with experts in field of event multimedia, creating the perfect ‘blend’.”

The Scotch Whisky Experience also includes Amber Restaurant.
