In addition, the bar features a spacious terrace capable of hosting approximately 40 guests. Despite Chin Chin’s extensive list of wines and cocktails to choose from, the whiskey range is what truly stands out here. Over eighty single malts by the glass are available at the bar, comprising a quite impressive collection. Amongst the establishment’s wide Speyside collection, a ten-year-old Glenfarclas single malt and a Lagavulin 25 years old cask strength are the ones that truly stood out to us.
