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.

Ardbeg Day 2017!

One of our favourite whisky events of the year rolls around again this June with Ardbeg Day, a celebration of all things Ardbeg and the launch of a brand new limited edition whisky. This year's release is named Kelpie, after the mythical sea-creature said to inhabit the waters of Scotland, it is appropriately aged in virgin Black Sea oak casks.

If you are in Christchurch on the 3rd of June, we would like to invite you to be amongst the first in the world to take part in the celebrations, with games, sea food and the opportunity to try the new whisky.
