Product Description

Highland Fling Tasting Pack

Come take part in a Highland Fling!

Following the last three tastings that focussed very much on whiskies from far-flung, and perhaps the more unlikely places you would find whisky-making going on, we bring it home to Scotland. The Highlands of Scotland to be precise. And two of the finest from the most northern Highlands to be exact!

Balblair and Old Pulteney are two shining lights from the Highlands, north of Inverness. Both are historic distilleries, with Balblair dating back as far as 1790 and Pulteney in 1826 – so both have pedigree! Neither is perhaps as well-known as some of the ‘shinier’ brands from Scotland, or the Highlands, and this is a chance to get to know them both a lot better! The whiskies, we can tell you are top notch and both distilleries are long-time favourites of ours.

There are only 60 packs available and the same number of places on this tasting, so ensure you are quick and get your pack before they sell out!


At the accompanying virtual tasting event, on Friday 5th June, we will be joined by Lukasz Dynowiak, Global Brand Ambassador for Single Malt Whiskies at International Beverage Ltd, who will present the whiskies to you, whilst you taste them. He will take you through the production processes at both and what makes each stand out. 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 the tasting.

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 World Whisky Tasting pack we will be supporting The Drinks Trust.


Please note the accompanying images are for illustrative purposes, and are not of the world whisky tasting pack, as these are yet to be produced. We will update these as soon as possible.

UPDATE! If you are placing an order after the 7th May, please be aware that we are currently working with a back-log and waiting for dry goods in order to complete the packs. You may have to wait 2 weeks for your pack. If you ordered before this before then, you should receive them next week (11/5) from Thursday onwards.

ABOUT OUR TASTING PACKS

We understand that for whatever reason you may not be able to be at one of our tastings on the dates we set. However, we also understand that this can cause great anxiety and stress as all of these tastings are generally unmissable! Well now there is no excuse to miss any whisky tasting action with our ‘mail-order tasting packs’.
