The Whisky Exchange “The Balvenie Whisky Academy Tasting” – Scotch Whisky News


Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

For the main July tasting event here at TWE Vinopolis, our good friends at The Balvenie Distillery in Speyside have offered to host an evening of malted merriment, purely in the name of education. And, of course, who better to present such a tasting but the incredibly knowledgeable and superbly qualified Dr. Andrew Forrester (Head Honcho for all things Balvenie in the UK), and TWE alumnus Sam Simmons, aka Dr. Whisky – famous for his wonderful blog… and we understand he now does something or other for Balvenie, too.

The Balvenie Whisky Academy Tasting,
with Dr. Forrester and Dr. Whisky
Monday 11th July, 7:00pm


The chaps will be pouring a few select gems from The Balvenie range and are also currently liberating a few samples from Warehouse 24 at the distillery for our enjoyment. They will be including elements from their recently launched Balvenie Whisky Academy, which aims to bring a better understanding of our favourite spirit with Charles MacLean, Gavin D. Smith, David Stewart and others discussing the history, science, and enjoyment of Scotch whisky. Check out the intro on youTube

Whether you are a complete novice or have been drinking Balvenie for years, this is a great chance to learn a lot about whisky in general and a rare opportunity to spend an evening in the delightful and engaging company of the fine gentlemen mentioned above.

In a slight change to our usual Monday arrangement, places for this evening will be released from 3:00pm, Wednesday 29th June. As always, they are limited to 2 per booking and sold on a first come, first served basis. You can reserve a place by calling us on +44 (0)207 403 8688 with payment details to hand.
