Introduction to Whisky

Looking to get into whisky but not quite sure where to start?  Maybe you’ve tried a few Speysides that have peaked your interest and fancy branching out?  This tasting is for you!  We’re going back to basics to try a variety of whiskies from different regions in Scotland.  This tasting can help you understand the processes of making whisky as well as how to identify what whiskies you may like and may not.

Just to give you a wee flavour of what kind of events we have done, here’s our past events! If you would like to arrange a tasting like this for a private group – please get in contact with us!

We’ll be trying the new age statement Remarkable Regional Malt range! The brand ambassador from Douglas Laing will be coming along to talk us through each one and answer your questions.
This time your tastings will come in the Love Gin Box from Gin Bothy! The brand ambassador from Gin Bothy will be coming along to talk us through each one and answer your questions. We will be trying two very tasty gins and two super smooth liqueurs – the perfect way to spend the Sunday after Christmas!
Join our Christmas EXTRAVAGINZA virtual tasting!! We’ve joined up with Pickering’s Gin from Edinburgh for a festive feast of Christmas themed gins.  It’s been a long year for everyone so we thought it was only suitable to feature 7 gin samples(!!) in this tasting.

We’ve got the amazing and very knowledgeable Fiona joining us from Loch Lomond to talk us through a range of their tasty and diverse malts.
We’ve teamed up with Speciality Brands and Dean the Rum Guru (we’re told his knowledge is 90% molasses) to try a selection of 5 rums (25ml measures) from around the Caribbean.
Our last Glen Scotia tasting sold out in a hot minute so we just HAD to run another!
We’ve got the fantastic Fiona from Glen Scotia to conduct a wee virtual tasting for us!  They’ve got a fantastic range of very drinkable malts and we’ve been fans of their bottlings for as long as we’ve been drinking whisky! 
We’ve got the amazing and very knowledge Fiona to talk us through the Glen Scotia range. A fantastic Campbeltown distillery defying the usual Campbeltown style. This tasting includes five drams, including a wee limited edition!
We’ve got a shiny new person on board for this tasting! Fiona from Ben Lomond is going to be leading this tasting to tell us all about the Ben Lomond gin range, including a sample of each of their three full strength gins and a wee pre-made cocktail!
Five Scottish Single Malts with two things in common – they have all been aged for at least 12 years and they’ve all spent some time in a Sherry Cask. We will discover just how diverse the flavours can be whilst looking a wee bit at the facts and history around the use of Sherry Casks in the Scotch Whisky industry.
We’re away another jaunt around the islands to try some of their coastal offerings to satisfy our wanderlust and gin thirst!! Bring your brolly!
Sweetooths rejoice! We’re hosting a virtual tasting just for you, filled with sugary-sweet and moreish tipples!  This tasting will feature a spread of liqueurs and full-strength alcohols, including (but not limited to) a few tasty gin liqueurs.  
We love whisky.  We love beer.  So whisky AND beer? It’s just a natural progression really.   We’ve paired 3 whiskies from independent bottlers Morrison & Mackay and 3 beers from Seven Kings Brewery for a night of this very Scottish serving!

Just to give you a wee flavour of what kind of events run – here’s an list of some we have done in the past!

We are so lucky to live in a country surrounded by SO many tasty gins!! The Scottish gin scene continues to grow therefore we’re obliged to keep trying more and more (or that’s the excuse we use anyway…). 
Join us from the comfort of your own house/ship for our Virtual Rum Tasting! We’ve “researched” 5 tasty rums (pirates and all) and we’ll be talking you through some rum history, how to drink your rum and a bit about each of the companies behind the drinks whilst we all sip on this versatile spirit! 
Scotland and whisky go hand in hand, we’ve been making (and of course drinking!) this magical stuff for centuries (and we’re rather good at it too!).
We wanted to look back through history at how whisky has evolved since its earliest days and hence The Creation of Whisky Tasting was born!
Gin is now more popular than ever but it’s not always been our tipple of choice.  Join us on an exploration of gin’s history in the U.K., from our first encounters with Dutch Jenever to our more recent obsession with syrupy sweet liqueurs….and of course drinking gin whilst doing so! 
Scotland makes SO many tasty gins sometimes it’s difficult to see past our botanically rich shores. HOWEVER during this tasting we’re going to do just that and venture out of Scotland to some gin producers further afield. You won’t need a passport, just a comfy seat, a glass and some ice!
Whisk(e)y is a truly international hobby, something we can toast to the world over! With that in mind, we’re going to venture around the world (from the safe confines of your couch) and try a few drams from the ever growing world of international whiskies!
From Orkney to Arran, the Scottish Isles have an amazing selection of drams on offer! Join us on a wee tour and sample a few of them.
Use your imaGINation and travel around some Scottish Islands with us during this Virtual Gin Tasting (it gets easier the more samples you have!)
Join us for a fun and fizz filled evening! And what makes fizz better but a dash of gin!? We’ll be trying a selection of gin liqueurs that pair perfectly with prosecco for a taste sensation!
