Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, the closest restaurant to Edinburgh Castle, will host a series of Whisky Suppers during August’s Festival season, in association with Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

On selected dates from 9 – 25 August, the award-winning restaurant will welcome whisky lovers to its atmospheric Glengoyne Room for a delicious two-course meal and tutored whisky tasting from Glengoyne’s Ben Kaylor.

After dinner, guests will be able to soak up the atmosphere of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo from Cannonball’s private courtyard: a truly spectacular end to the night.

Carina Contini, owner of Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, commented:

There are few places more exciting than Edinburgh during the Festival, and we are right in the heart of the action on the Royal Mile. Our Glengoyne Whisky Suppers are the perfect way to round off a day of shows, or join in the celebrations after a hard day’s work. We’ll be serving up our renowned haggis cannonballs, as well as the best Scottish smoked salmon with vegetables from our kitchen garden. We look forward to welcoming malt lovers from Edinburgh and beyond to join us for an evening of fun, great food, and fantastic Glengoyne whisky.
