Full description
Immerse yourself in the world of malt whiskey with a comprehensive tasting followed by a lesson in making your own whiskey blend. On arrival at the bar, receive a welcome drink of beer, wine or a soft drink and have a chat with the other guests before your tasting begins. Listen to your host as they give you a brief introduction to the world of Scotch Malt Whisky, its history, and its regional differences. 

Next, taste 6 Single Malts, each from well known, prestigious distilleries from each of the whiskey regions of Scotland. You will be given a tasting card and asked to guess which flavor is found in each whiskey. Don't be intimidated, it's just for fun and is easier than you may think - one recent guest scored 17 out of 18 having never tasted whisky before. Try and identify which region the whiskeys come from and then finish the tasting with a blind nose test. The guest with the best score will win a certificate.

Afterward, put your new-found malt whiskey knowledge into practice as you make your own blend in the whiskey lab. Take home a 50ml bottle with a personalized label as a souvenir and feel free to buy more of your blend should you wish. Finish your experience with tea or coffee.
