Review by A Ritchie
Fab evening, great fun and with a knowledgeable host learnt lots without it being boring really recommend this experience
04 August 2017
Sometimes two things are so great that you’re left with no option but to put them together. Whisky blending is the art of doing exactly that, so that each one makes its contribution to the finished blend without outweighing the other.
Now’s your chance to learn about the coveted process. Proceedings will get underway with an introduction to whisky, where you’ll be able to sample a handful of whiskies of differing styles. Your resident whisky expert will talk you through each one’s origins and processes, as well as the smell and flavours to expect upon tasting. Then things get scientific: armed with a pipette and a mini bottle, you’ll slowly build up a blend of your very own. Along the way you’ll discover how blended whisky came to be and why it remains the backbone of the Scotch whisky industry.
To make your experience extra-special, you’ll take home your bespoke blend to enjoy whenever you please.
Your voucher is valid for 12 months from the date of issue, while government restrictions apply in relation to Covid-19 we are offering free extensions on all experiences so you can take your experience when the time is right.
On arrival at your chosen Whisky Lounge location, you’ll meet your guide before your experience gets underway. Over the course of the experience, you will sample four varieties of whisky, before creating your own blend from the available selection.
You’ll come away with a new found appreciation of good whisky, as well as an understanding of blending techniques – not to mention your very own concoction to enjoy at home.
