    Itinerary

    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 - it's history, the regional differences and a brief explanation of the technical processes involved. 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. Guests will then have an opportunity to blend their own whisky which will be personalised packaged to take away. 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.

    Great time spent learning about whiskeys from the different regions of Scotland. For someone who doesn’t normally drink whiskey, I really enjoyed it! And a nice memento to bring home your own blended whiskey miniature!

    This was a great! We got to learn about the different regions, how the whiskey differs, and how to taste and smell the differences. After all of that we got to learn about the mixing process and mix our own blends! Mr. Forbes class was great! Highly recommend!!

    This was a wonderful class. Though, ours was combined with a lunch experience as well and may not be available in the future, I will just focus on the whisky part. Richard walked us through what we'd be tasting and information about the different regions we'd be tasting from.
