Nothing warms the soul on a cold day like a flight of whiskies!


During the last few years, we’ve presented over 80 distinct and fine whiskies at our premium whisky seminars. 75% of these have been Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, along with other excellent Scotches and whiskies from other countries.

Come and join us to taste another great collection, paired with some excellent tasting plates from our kitchen. Whisky Ambassador, Carol Anderson of GrapeScot, will be back to lead the tasting and add to your whisky knowledge.

These events are always popular, and sell out fast, so we encourage you to reserve soon. We never serve the same whisky twice!
