Whisky tastings & events

The world of whisky is complex and varied and one of the easiest way to get to know it is to come along to one of our regular whisky tastings. Our tastings vary from distillery focused evening, food pairings, vintage selections, world whiskies and many more. These are fun educational and social events where everyone is welcome. We conduct tastings the length and breath of the country on request, they are targeted at people who have a genuine interest in tasting - if your are organizing/hosting an event and would like to discuss your requirements please do get in touch with us.

Our tastings are incredibly popular so if you do see an event coming up that interest you, it does pay to book up early to avoid disappointment.

This month we welcome Rory Donnelly, Signature Brand Ambassador for Suntory, to take us through a selection of drams from the house of Suntory. This will be a rare opportunity to taste some of the unseen drams which make up the brands for which Suntory is rightly famed, including Yamazaki, Hakushu, Toki, Hibiki, and Chita. It has been some time since we have had the opportunity to host a Japanese whisky tasting with such a range of Whisky. This is certainly not one to miss, whether you are entirely new to Japanese Whisky or an old fan.
