What you'll do
On arrival guests will be given a welcome drink (beer, wine or soft drink) and will mingle and chat with the other guests. We will then sit at large communal tables where the host will give an introduction to the world of Scotch Malt Whisky - a brief history, the regional differences and a brief explanation of the differences betweene whiskies. We will then taste 6 malt whiskies, one from each of the whisky regions of Scotland - guests will be given a tasting card and asked to choose from different flavours they might find in each whisky. Don't be intimidated, it's just for fun and is easier than you may think - one recent guest scored 14 out of 18 having never tasted whisky before ! The guest with the best score will win a small prize. You will then use your new malt whisky knowledge to make your own blend from our whisky lab, a 50ml bottle with a personalised label is included - you will be able to buy more of your blend should you wish.We will finish the experience with coffee and hand made Scottish chocolates, guests will be able to buy whisky miniatures and other souvenirs of their experience.
