The refurbishment has seen the venue’s Castlehill Room and Blender’s Room transformed and given their own 'whiskey inspired' identity, as well as being fitted with top of the range audiovisual equipment.

The Castlehill Room, which can cater for events for up to 80 people, has been redecorated with whiskey-focused artworks and copper and brass installations to illustrate the whisky production process.

The Blender’s Room, which is designed for smaller events and can host up to 30 people, has been redesigned to take inspiration from a whiskey blender’s sample room.

The venue has four event spaces in total that can be hired together and used in any combination.

Susan Morrison, director and general manager of The Scotch Whisky Experience, said: "Over the past few years, our events and hospitality business has shown excellent growth and is gaining an enviable reputation.

"As the culmination of our refurbishment programme, we have now brought the same high quality craftsmanship and uniqueness to our private events spaces.

"The finished product brings together some of the best of Scotland’s artists and designers, with experts in field of event multimedia, creating the perfect ‘blend’."
