When in Scotland, put Bramble Bar on your list. Here’s why.
It wasn’t very long ago when the Dram Attic family was in Scotland. Having been blessed with great weather and company at The Isle Of Skye and the lovely Loch Lomond, we decided to conclude our stay in the country in Edinburgh. We have to admit, we were there with a single agenda – to get a drink at the very popular Bramble.
With our agenda set clear, and a firm resolve, we set out on a walk in lovely Edinburgh. After a short albeit very nippy walk, we found the charming little spot, tucked away below ground level, almost hiding from the world. This lovely bar exuded warmth and a great deal of confidence from the minute we set foot in it. We seated ourselves at the bar and wasted no time in getting chatty with Michael, who is the bar manager at Bramble Bar and who no doubt, churned us out some amazing whisky cocktails with undeniably evident panache. To cut a long story short, we went for one drink and stayed for 3….each. That’s right, we were more than suitably impressed.
Michael and Bramble Bar clearly made a lasting impression so how could we not have them grace our pages?
Without further ado, here’s introducing Michael Lynch sharing a cocktail that perfectly sums him up – The Black & Yellow.
