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.


Upcoming tastings

Fortify yourself for Winter

With the colder weather closing in, we thought it was time to batten down the hatches for the evening with the some rich and rounded drams influenced by casks from the bodegas and cellars of Spain and Portugal. We've scoured the warehouse for some intriguing sherry and port cask matured malts. The line up includes some classics as well as a rather exciting new single cask which the staff are crying out to get their mitts on!
Join us for an evening of delicious drams which will be sure to stir the spirits for the Winter ahead!
