Weekend in Edinburgh. Actually a four-day trip. Ten people in a an airbnb apartment. How did we get here? And why?
Makers Bible is not only a series of books on quality, passion and craftsmanship, but also a brand. Made by us. We are Melville Brand Design a design and brand consultancy from Munich in Germany. We have founded the shop 10 years ago. To reward the team we treated anyone to a weekend in Edinburgh. This weekend in Edinburgh is the substitute for a stay in New England, home to our namesake patron, Herman Melville and the location for his famous book, one of the most famous of all: Moby Dick.
So actually we wanted New England, but settled for old Scotland. And never regretted a second we spent on Scottish soil. Makers Bible in our mind we went for this weekend in Edinburgh in pursue of craftsmanship.
Recreate our experience of this weekend in Edinburgh: If you got three days and the weather is suitable, we recommend a day-trip to Pitlochry. From there take a highland walk to the nearby Edradour whisky distillery, by the way, the smallest farm distillery in the whole of Scotland. What they make in a year is the output of Glenfiddich in a week. Being that small still lets them produce two kind of whiskies. One peated, one un-peated. (Grain that is smoked over peat gives the product a very smoky, tobacco flavour). Just so you know what to expect.
See all tips and the places that we had visited in the Makers Bible EXPLORER below. (if you know of any hand-crafted brands and makers in Edinburgh that ought to be listed here – do send us some info by mail).
