Every whisky tasting is tailored specifically to your requirements; be it for ten people or fifty, the experience will be unique to you. There are no assumptions about whisky knowledge level, all your attendees need to bring is an open mind, enthusiasm and a willingness to try new things.

The aim for all GreatDrams whisky tasting events is for everyone to have a great time and enjoy themselves, hopefully they will also find new styles of whisky they like too.

Each person’s attendance includes:

  • Event-specific tasting mat
  • A 20 minute intro to the history of whisky and the format of the event
  • We will be discuss and tailor the theme once you book a whisky tasting
  • A guided tasting through five whiskies including distillery stories
  • All whiskies presented in proper tasting glasses
  • There will be an educational side too so everyone will be able to properly nose and drink whisky by the end
  • We even bring all glasses and bottles with us, clear up and take them all with us again leaving no cleaning or tidying burden to any tastings we host
  • We can create a theme relevant to you and your guests, examples below:
  • Japan and the Far East
  • Bourbon & Rye
  • Whisky from different regions
  • Exploring peaty whisky
  • International whiskies
  • Specific aged whisky (maybe 30 year old whiskies for a 30th)
  • Limited editions etc.
  • Cask wood finishes (sherry, port, wine etc.)
  • Beginners whisky understanding
  • An exploration of Islay
  • Silent distilleries of Scotland
  • Home nations’ whisky (Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales)

Costs per person are dependent on the amount of people attending and the whiskies we will be sampling i.e. limited edition whiskies will cost more because of their rarity and inability to try again.
