There are a lot of options out there when it comes to selecting a whisky to drink, so how do we know where to start? Luckily, numerous organisations around the world regularly give out awards to highlight excellence in the whisky industry. Often broken down into many categories, the awards process allows us to get some hints at what people, exposed to the full breadth of what’s out there, judge to be worth our time.

Now, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and has their own palate, so I can’t claim that every gold medal winner is going to be to everyone’s taste. But I do hope, as always, that by providing a line-up of samples which hits a range of styles and flavours, this time all of them award-winning, we’ll get to appreciate some of the best whiskies in the world.

A guided whisky tasting:
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.

About me:
My philosophy with whisky is that there’s no wrong way to enjoy it. Neat, with water, with ice, blended, smokey, sweet, from Scotland or Japan or Mexico! Everyone should be able to enjoy tasting and smelling what they taste and smell however they choose.
I’ve been hosting whisky tastings in Cambridge for nearly 4 years. Mostly this has been as a part of the Cambridge University Whisky Appreciation Society but, in the last year, I have branched out to reach a wider audience to share this wonderful spirit with. After studying in Scotland and continuing to explore the world of whisky in the 7 years since, from Cambridge, I really enjoy sharing what I’ve learned with others and find that there’s always more whisky to try.
