Whisky Schools 2016
Ever wanted to know more about the most diverse spirit in the world?
The Whisky School is designed for anyone with an interest in whisky who wants to learn more in an informal but informative fashion. All in an atmospheric and grand setting.
Find out how whisky is made and discover the different styles produced all over Scotland and the rest of the World. The history, regionality and provenance will be discussed as well as an in-depth look at wood maturation and the new-make spirit.
PLUS attendees will get the chance to blend their very own whisky, choose a brand name for it and take a miniature of it home with them!
After completing the course and successfully passing a final exam, the candidate will receive a signed certificate and more importantly the confidence to speak the language of whisky.
