Whisky Tastings

14th MayThe Smoky and Peaty Tasting - At one stage in Scotland’s history all whisky was peated. Now just a handful of distilleries continue to use the wet, black vegetation that gives a whisky such glorious smoky, citric, medicinal qualities. This evening we’ll be tasting six drams, all peated and aged to varying degrees. Does Islay, that bastion of peat, reign supreme? Or does a young mainland pretender steal the crown?

19th MayThe Great Grain Whisky Tasting - Join us in our cellar this evening as we take you through a selection of the finest grain whiskies. Discover the history of grain whisky, compare it to single malt, and see for yourself how grain can be much, much more than something merely used to fill out cheap blends!

20th MayThe Art of Blending with Chivas Regal - This evening will give you a great insight into the art of blending courtesy of Chivas Regal. Come along to discover how blended whiskies are made, learn about their history and have a shot at creating your own blended masterpiece!

21st MayHow To Taste Whisky - The perfect introduction to the world of whisky: this tasting is a must for those who are just starting to discover whisky and all its joys, as well as a great gift for those whose passion and palate for whisky is ever-growing. All will become clear and you will leave with a broader understanding of this wonderful elixir.

28th MayThe Blind Whisky Tasting - This evening we’ll be testing your excellent senses of sight, taste and smell. How good are you at singling out a £20 blend from a £100 single malt? A peaty Islay from a sherried Highland? By the evening’s close your appreciation of whisky will have changed for good. Led by our expert tutors, they will guide you through six drams giving you indications what to look for, so that you can tell us what you think you’re drinking. The winner may even take home a prize!

11th JuneThe Fine and Rare Whisky Tasting - There is nothing quite like drinking a whisky in the knowledge you may never see it again, let alone taste it. With whiskies from long-closed distilleries and those which come and go once a year, this tasting of the finest and rarest of whiskies will be a night to remember.

12th JuneThe Great Whisky and Sausage Pairing - On this evening we are embarking on a great experiment, to pair artisanal sausages with fine whiskies from Scotland and around the world. Come and join the debate!

18th JuneHow To Taste Whisky – The perfect introduction to the world of whisky: this tasting is a must for those who are just starting to discover whisky and all its joys, as well as a great gift for those whose passion and palate for whisky is ever-growing.

25th JuneBootleggers and Bourbon - From the moonshine bootleggers of Dukes of Hazzard to Chicago’s murky criminal underworld, in this tasting we will be sampling the delights of the corn, wheat and rye whiskeys of the United States. Come along and see why Bourbon is taking the world by storm yet again!
