New Scottish Distilleries Virtual Tasting

What has Scotland got in store for us?

It is all too easy, with the whisky revolution going on all over the world, to forget the country which made it all possible. Scotland is still responsible for most of the single malt whiskies we have – and will – likely taste during our lives. But perhaps due to this dominance, added to the dozens of distilleries starting up in less likely climes, new distilleries from Scotland are not given the spotlight they are due.

Well that’s where this tasting comes in!

The aim of it, quite simply, is to highlight some of the new breed of distillers and distilleries that have cropped up in Scotland over the last few years. Some are already established in the ‘mainstream’, whilst some are so new they don’t even have ‘whisky’ yet. Regardless, we will be tasting liquid progress – how are they getting on and hints at what they will taste like in the years to come.

This will be a fascinating and exclusive tasting, as we welcome to the ‘live’ tasting the actual distillers or folks close to them…


At the accompanying virtual tasting event, on Friday 14th July, we will be joined by representatives from each distillery who will present their whiskies to you, whilst you taste them. Each will talk to you a bit about what they do and the whisky or spirit they have provided. At the end of the tasting there will be a Q&A session, where you will get the chance to ask any burning questions you might have following it.

Fear not if you cannot make the tasting itself, as this will be available to view ‘on demand’ on our Facebook page, after it is streamed live.

SUPPORTING CHARITY

During this challenging time, we have decided that for every tasting pack purchased through our website, we will donate £5 to a nominated charity supporting workers in the drinks and hospitality trade. For the New Scottish Distilleries Tasting pack we will be supporting The BEN.

 

Please note. There is a slight delay in getting packs out – for fairly obvious reasons – but you will receive your tasting pack before the online tasting on the 14th August.
