Art of Blending with Chivas
Blended whisky has been ignored for far too long, particularly in the UK, and Chivas are here to help elevate its status. You don’t have to be a whisky expert, but you do have to come with an open mind and be prepared to apply both your palate and your brain as you construct your very own blended whisky.
Chivas will guide you through the whisky blending, which is an art-form and also a lot of fun!
Friday 10th May | 6:30pm | 8pm
Saturday 11th May | Session 1 | 12:30pm | 2pm
Saturday 11th May | Session 2 | 5:30pm | 7pm
Sunday 12th May | 12:30pm | 2pm
Is the classic Manhattan your chosen tipple or is it the Whisky Sour, or Rob Roy that’s more your style? We’ll teach everything you need to know about blending stunningly-smooth whisky and combining it with mixers that contrast and complement the unique taste of ‘liquid gold’.
