visiting, visiting, and drinking

The third day in Edinburgh, we visited a whiskey distillery not far from Edinburgh. After about 30 minutes drive, we reached Glenkinchie distillery.
It was the second day after annual closing, so we could visited brand new show rooms.
Glenkinchie is probably not very well known whiskey producer. I think one of the biggest reason is 90% of their production are transfer to blend whiskey distilleries.
I was very shocked when I've heard that. Same thing happens for the sake industry but I feel a bit sad every time I hear about this system from producers.

We had very nice lunch at the local pub called Hobgoblin that was recommended by Gill from Glenkinchie.
蒸留場の見学を終えた後はGlenkinchieのGill がお勧めしてくれたHobgoblinというパブへ。この辺りに2件あるパブのうちの1つです。

Last night in Edinburgh, we had dinner at "the witchery at the castle".
The restaurant was really classic and beautiful.
We had view of massive castle just out side and guess what, its started to snow... It was such a incredible atmosphere... We enjoyed the lovely food, dessert, wine and service.
