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 one outweighing the other. Now you have the chance to learn about this 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 will 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 be able to take home your blend for drinking on a cold winter’s eve or showing off to friends who lack your whisky education.
