In three weeks I am taking my son to St. Andrews on a 10-day golf trip. He has never been out of the country, and we will also have a couple of days in Edinburgh for sightseeing. I have also left two open days in between our three rounds of golf for sightseeing in the SA area. He is a bartender by profession and would like to gain some knowledge about Scotch whisky and gin to share with his customers when he returns home. We looked up Glenlivet and Mccallen distilleries and both are well north in the Highlands and too far to go in the time we have. Do any of you know of or have experienced any distilleries that are either in or near Edinburgh or St. Andrews that are open to the public and possibly have guided tours for a fee?
On another note, have any of you brought liquor back home from Scotland If so, how did you do it and are there limits to how much. Thanks.
