Peaty Penance Whisky Tasting 

Your Peaty Penance awaits!

We know many of you out there love your peaty whiskies. We know who you are and you know who you are. Don’t be ashamed. Don’t be embarrassed. You are being invited instead to enter a ‘Peaty Penance’…

Celebrate your love for the smoky and mysterious with a tasting pack and accompanying virtual tasting put together just for you!

We have assembled – in conjunction with three of the finest proponents and producers of peated whiskies – a fantastic line-up of peaty whiskies, from the lightly-peated Highland Park, medium-peated Bowmore and the heavyweight peated Laphroaig. This tasting is designed to bring you back to the beginning of each distillery’s journey, before discovering how they have evolved and what new or different bottlings they have to illustrate that…

For those of you interested in, or obsessed by, all things peat, this tasting is for you!

At the accompanying virtual tasting event, on Friday 10th July, we will be joined by David Miles, Senior Whisky Specialist at Edrington Beam Suntory, who will present his whiskies to you, whilst you taste them. David will talk to you about each distillery and whisky in detail, with input from Whisky Lounge founder, Eddie Ludlow. 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.

You can take part by taking advantage of the exclusive ‘Peaty Penance’ tasting pack. You can view and purchase this tasting pack HERE.

Don’t forget by buying one of the packs you are helping those in need, with £5 of every pack sold going to the Drinks Trust – a charity supporting vulnerable workers in the drinks and hospitality industry.

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 10th July.
