Port Askaig on the Waves – Port Ellen Pier
May 23, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm| £60
Imagine sailing round the south coast of Islay taking in the views while sipping on 45yo Islay malt whisky? Well this dream can become a reality.
Join us on the Tall Ship Irene while we taste through the Port Askaig range from the 100 proof all the way up to the 30 and 45 year olds (ahem, £1200 a bottle) with the very man who put’s them together Mr Oliver Chilton – Whisky Creator for Speciality Drinks.
Opportunities to try Islay single malts at this age are very few and far between and to be able to taste them in a setting like this is nothing short of incredible. This could well be a life changing event and perhaps the whisky moment of a lifetime.
But it’s not all about the whisky on this tasting you will have the opportunity to hoist the sails and get involved with the sailing of Irene (should you want to)
We will be boarding the Tall Ship Irene at Port Ellen Pier at 1.30pm and returning around 5.30pm. Please make sure you are on time to avoid watching Irene sail off without you.
Please note, we only have 8 places for this incredible tasting and your ticket price includes a sensational lunch on Irene.
Please also note, this tasting will take place out and sea and on the waves therefore we are subject to the weather. Please make sure you dress appropriately.
