Martin Compston enjoys night out at ‘incredible’ Johnnie Walker experience in Edinburgh

Martin Compston enjoyed a night out in Edinburgh last night at the new Johnnie Walker whisky visitor experience with his wife and pals.

The eight-floor visitor experience, which is located in the former House of Fraser building on the capital’s Princes Street, was opened by Prince Charles only a few days ago.

On his Instagram, the Line of Duty star shared some snaps of his day and even bottled his own whisky.

He wrote: “Incredible night @johnniewalkerprincesstreet in Edinburgh. Tour was sensational, 200 years of history told through whisky can’t recommend it highly enough.

“A personalised whisky highball, Journey of Flavour tour and even pouring your own bottle. Cracking grub as well. What a legacy starting from a grocery shop in Kilmarnock two centuries ago.

“Tip of the cap to the guides and bar staff see you again soon.”

And in other snaps, the 37-year-old can be seen smiling for pictures with pals Gordon Smart and Alan McGarrie.

The pals and their wives seemed to have a ball as they posed for pictures around the attraction.

Four and a half years in the making, Johnnie Walker Princes Street is the flagship centrepiece of Diageo’s £185 million pound investment in whisky tourism in Scotland.

The exciting new attraction features rooftop bars, private dining areas, live performance areas and modern sensory tasting rooms, alongside tours and tasting experiences.

Offering two incredible rooftop bars and a terrace with breath-taking views of the Edinburgh skyline, it includes the Explorers’ Bothy whisky bar stocked with 150 different whiskies.

And the 1820 cocktail bar, where drinks are paired with a carefully curated menu sourced from the four corners of Scotland.

The attraction also features the innovative Johnnie Walker Journey of Flavour tour, which sees visitors have their personal flavour preferences mapped with drinks tailored to their palate.
