Private Whisky Tastings
Tastings in our Howff (or 'meeting place') are hosted by our experienced Whisky presenters. We aim for our evenings to be enjoyable, informative, and welcoming to all levels of experience.
These tastings are available to book for weekdays aside from Friday.
There are various tasting options available for your whisky evening, these range from assorted introductory single malt whiskies to some older more unique options, which are outlined below. These demonstrate the basic format, however we can tailor the tasting to suit your preference as a group. We recommend a minimum of 20 - 25 people for our evening-time tastings, if you are wanting to cater to a small group of 3-8 then our flights are a perfect choice.

Four Whiskies from across the spectrum of styles and regions of Scotland. Intended to give you and your guests a feeling for the history and flavour of Scotch Whisky.
Option 2: A Romp around Scotland

If you have a more specific tasting request, we would be happy to work with you in creating a bespoke tasting event. Please enquire via the link at the foot of this page and we will be happy to discuss options.
If you do wish to have snacks/canapes to accompany your tasting, we can arrange those through our caterer.
Flights at Whisky Galore are an informal opportunity for a small group of guests (3-8) to relax and enjoy some of the limited drams which are not normally available to try.
These flights take place from 4:45 to 5:30pm and we can book them in on weekdays aside from Friday, just get in touch with the Events team to arrange.
