Scotch Whisky Tourism Is A Real Thing!
Prestige Singapore|January 2022
Scotch whisky tourism is a real thing, attracting a record 2.16 million visitors in 2019. And if the recently opened, eight-floor Johnnie Walker Princes Street visitor experience in Edinburgh for the world’s best-selling Scotch whisky is anything to go by, the optimism for future growth is justified.

After four and a half years in the making, Johnnie Walker Princes Street is born. The centrepiece of Diageo’s £185 million (S$334 million) investment in whisky tourism in Scotland, the destination located in Edinburgh is the largest of its kind. Set over 71,000 sq ft, the visitor centre reimagines the traditional whisky tour experience using world-first technology.
