The Whiskey Thing Experience

£120 pp

From the team behind the highly acclaimed Ginstitute comes our educatory experience The Whiskey Thing. An in-depth look into the wonderful category of Whiskey, covering everything from history and production to flavour profiles and most importantly of all, tastings. With 10 spirit tastings from a curated selection of premium global whiskies, this is a unique opportunity for whiskey connoisseurs as well as the perfect introduction to the category for whiskey novices. Once guests have explored the production process, what goes into the spirit and what tastes and flavours they enjoy, they will ultimately blend their own ‘one of one’ 70cl bottle to take home. The Team have carefully selected whiskeys from around the world, including rare blends, meaning the whiskeys enjoyed and blended on The Whiskey Thing make it a truly exclusive experience.
