The Islay Festival 2019 – Elements Tall Ship Tasting
May 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Islay Festival 2019 Elements Tall Ship Tasting
This is a very special tasting where you’ll be making your way through the latest from the Elements of Islay, Port Askaig and Single Malts of Scotland range, with Julie Hamilton – Brand Ambassador for Elixir Distillers, and long-time friend of The Whisky Lounge.
Aside from an exclusive tasting, your surroundings will be very conducive too, among the sails and boons aboard the Tall Ship ‘The Flying Dutchman’!
The boat is is over 100 years old, having been rebuilt and refurbished to accommodate passengers in 2004, She is a sight to behold and has a fascinating story herself, which the ship’s crew can tell you all about whilst aboard.
The Elements and Port Askaig range are becoming world-renowned for offering incredibly good single Islay malts for realistic prices. Most are bottled at cask strength and all are unchill-filtered and uncoloured. You will not be disappointed.
This is a fantastic opportunity to look around this historic boat whilst tasting some very good whiskies – what more could you possibly want?!
We’ll be boarding the Dutchman at Port Ellen Pier at 10.45am sharp. You won’t need your sea legs for this one as we will be safely moored at the Port Ellen Ferry pier, but you may want waterproofs (if it rains) and grippy shoes for the deck!
*Please note that all Tall Ship Tastings are weather dependent.
