What better way to celebrate St Andrew’s Day than with a guided whisky tasting?  Come and join me, @elliott_drinks_whisky, as I introduce 6 Scottish whiskies fitting the theme of New & Old.

The oldest record of whisky production in Scotland comes from the 15th century and, while I can’t provide any 500-year-old drams, there are plenty of historic distilleries still around and bottling gold. To contrast this, I’ll also present some offerings from the newest distilleries to fully investigate the current state of Scottish whisky.

All are welcome to attend the event, whether you consider yourself a whisky expert or haven’t explored it at all. The evening will start with an introduction to the event and the first whisky, explaining a bit about why I’ve chosen it. We’ll share some nosing and tasting notes and then I’ll let you enjoy the whisky with your friends and fellow guests. After a short while this process will repeat for each of the remaining whiskies. I’ll be happy to try and answer any questions about the whiskies, the process of making them and the industry at any point.

Admission only with pre-booked tickets – no sales on the door.
