Private whisky tastings are a great way to celebrate an occasion with friends, and are pre-set ensuring a table is reserved for you when you arrive. Upon arrival one of our knowledgeable floor team will talk your group through the four whiskies on tasting, including how to best enjoy the whisky on tasting, the story behind the whisky, regional influencers and distillery history. After a 15-45 minute talk, your group will be left to enjoy the whisky in their own time, whilst having full access to the open bar, and to staff whom are happy to answer any questions.
