Whisky Writer Delivers Virtual Tasting Class With Paired Cheeses To Your Door 

Author, whisky writer, and spirits competition judge Felipe Schrieberg is hosting regular online whisky tastings four times a week, with packs sent to attendees’ homes. A pack of three delicious cheeses is now being offered as an optional add-on to pair with the whiskies, the first time this has been offered on a regular basis in the UK.

From April 15th, just over a year after first launching his online whisky tastings, whisky writer and tastings host Felipe Schrieberg is introducing an optional selection of three cheeses to pair with six phenomenal whiskies featured in a new tasting pack this spring.

Running 4 tastings a week, Thursdays through Sundays, Schrieberg will lead groups of guests through a selection co-curated and delivered by whisky subscription service The Dram Team, while the cheeses have been specially selected by Bristol cheesemonger Two Belly to pair with the whiskies. The new tasting pack includes:

  • Compass Box Spice Tree
  • Glenturret 12 Year Old
  • Jura Seven Wood
  • Lakes Distillery The ONE Sherry Limited Edition
  • Glen Scotia Victoriana
  • Royal Brackla 18 Year Old Palo Cortado Finish

Schrieberg, who has now hosted over 200 online tastings for over 3000 guests over the last year, is excited to showcase the new offering.

“The whiskies are excellent, and this particular pack features really lovely full bodied whiskies that will be a perfect pairing with the cheese selection we have available. We’re also pleased we can offer the whiskies at a cheaper rate by the dram than what you’d pay at any bar, making great liquid accessible to anyone who’s interested in whisky.”

The tastings are hosted on Zoom, with tickets and vouchers available to purchase on event ticketing platforms Designmynight.com. They are also perfect presents for loved ones, friends, colleagues, and for anyone that would like to get together and have a drink, no matter how far apart they may be to each other.

£1 from each ticket or voucher purchased on Designmynight.com will also be donated to the Trussell Trust, a UK food bank network providing food for the country’s most vulnerable citizens.

Tasting participants will also be able to sign up for a subscription to The Dram Team’s subscription service, enjoying a 20% discount on their first box.
