Whisky Tastings

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.

The Best of Scotland Whisky Dinner

A St Andrews Day Whisky Dinner at Riccarton House

We have strong Scottish roots here in Christchurch and as you may know, many of the team at Whisky Galore are proud Scots too. So with St Andrew's Day rolling around on the 30th of November, we thought it an apt opportunity to celebrate the Best of Scotland. Clearly we're not that talented at the rugby, but we do have some iconic national attributes such as whisky, highland dancing, folk music, poetry, fine fare and of course the iconic deep fried mars bar. We'll be combining all these elements for a whisky dinner unlike any other in the beautiful and historic setting of Riccarton House.

Sam and his talented team of chefs have come up with an epic Scottish inspired 3 course menu to aid a night of Scottish food, drink, entertainment and a fair bit o' banter. So don a wee bit o' tartan and come along and celebrate with us for our final tasting of the year.

WHERE: Riccarton House, 16 Kahu Road, Riccarton, Christchurch
WHEN: Saturday the 30th of November, 6.30pm (St Andrews Day!)
PRICE: $120 per person, $115 for Guild Members
