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 Mists of Islay

To close off the 2020 tasting schedule we will gather together to share whiskies from the shores of The Queen of the Hebrides, the Isle of Islay.

The peat will be reekin', the smoke billowing and the drams flowing from some very special selections from Islay, including some exciting new releases.

We hope that those of you in Christchurch will join us for our last formal tasting of the year, but if you're not able to come along we do have plans for a virtual trip to Islay in the near future.

PLEASE NOTE: Traditionally this is one of our most popular tastings of the year, and places are limited - to avoid disappointment we would encourage you to book online as soon as you're able.
