From the Vaults: Whisky and the Scots

West Register House, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh plays host to an exhibition of whisky documents and treasures on display until 26th June 2009.

Albeit a modest exhibition, entrance is free and is well worth dropping in if your in Edinburgh's west end. There are displays charting the story of 'Whisky Galore' along with a fascinating official ledger signed by Rab' Burns in 1796.

A range of collectable Dewar’s blends and exhibits from Diageo's extensive history are also on display.

The main draw is a rare opportunity to see the 'Exchequer Roll of 1494' a parchment which documents the earliest known reference to whisky in Scotland.

The National Archives of Scotland (NAS) West Register House, Edinburgh.

Wednesday 7 May until Friday 26 June, Monday to Friday, 9.00 – 4.30.
