To commemorate the birthdays of Robert Paterson Pattison (born 24th May 1858) and Walter Gray Gilchrist Pattison (born 23rd May 1860), join us for this very special Leith Whisky Trail which focuses on the brothers, their business and the subsequent boom and bust of, not only the Pattisons but also, the Scotch whisky industry.
After an hour’s stroll around the wonderful port of Leith, taking in this fascinating period of whisky history, we’ll do the decent thing and head to the pub for a few old school drams and a good blether.
Each dram will be carefully selected to link to the story of the Pattisons. There’ll be five drams in all; 4 from the 1960s and 1970s as well as a ‘one for the road’ dram from the bar.
MEETING POINT: Fish & Boat Sculpture, Commercial Quay, Leith. EH6 6LU
