Edinburgh - The Vaults

Leith, Edinburgh

The Vaults

The spiritual home of the Society, traditional and eclectic in its appearance with a magnificent selection of single cask whisky and spirits. The history of the building dates back as far as the 12th century with the current building completed in 1787. Originally a wine merchants bonded warehouse, we are continuing its affiliation to the wine and spirits industry having been our home since 1983. A trusted hostelry for our valued members and their guests, we pride ourselves on a warm welcome, spectacular drams and flavour focused menu all combining to create the community that is SMWS. You can even book a stay overnight in the Vaults apartment!
