Sip Away at the Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend

Cocktail lovers are in for a treat at the first ever Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend this 6th–8th October.

Following the Edinburgh Cocktail Festival back in August, it’s time for the inaugural Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend. Mixology and cocktail enthusiasts in the capital can join in for the price of a £6 wristband.

Attendees will have the chance to taste exclusive signature cocktails from all participating bars for only £4 each, as well as free masterclasses and tastings throughout the weekend. 07702 246823

More than 40 top cocktail bars and restaurants such as Opal Lounge, Tigerlily and The Black Fox have expressed their excitement in showcasing Scottish cocktail scene – and of course, showing off their skills.

Marco Airoldi, general manager of The Boozy Cow, said: “We love our cocktails so we thought why not get involved with ECW and try to create some brand exposure and showcase our awesome cocktail offering. It’s a really exciting weekend ahead and we’re really happy to be a part of it. Hopefully it’ll bring a lot of new faces to Boozy Cow!”

The event’s organiser, Gary Anderson, was thrilled by the great response: “It is an absolute pleasure to work with so many local businesses and celebrate the awesome cocktail scene we have here in Edinburgh. It really is a Cocktail Capital!”

Each bar will only be providing one exclusive cocktail and the reason for that was because Anderson wanted people to socialise and get to know the city better through the event: “It’s all about tasting your way around the city, discovering new bars and flavours, and feeling like you’re part of something exciting.”
