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.

Ardbeg Day 2020 Tastings
Ardbeg Day is going to look a little different this year - where we would usually don some silly outfits, and deck the shop in the latest Ardbeg Day theme to celebrate (we were definitely thinking of some staff sheep outfits for this year!) - instead we will be taking a more low key approach in order to comply with physical distancing requirements.
We do know that many of you will still want to celebrate in some form or another, so we are organising two small tastings sessions on Saturday the 30th of May, one at 11.30am and one at 1.30pm. Each tasting session will have a maximum of 20 attendees, all of which will have seating spaced out along our tasting room. You will receive a welcome dram of the new Ardbeg 'Blaaack' followed by a selection of three very special Ardbeg Day Committee releases, the tasting will last approximately 45 minutes to one hour.
WHEN: Saturday 30th May, 11.30am OR 1.30pm
WHERE: Entry via The Howff at Whisky Galore, 834 Colombo Street
PRICE: $38 per person
These tastings are now sold out. Please drop us an e-mail should you want to be added to the waiting list
