Forbes Food and Drink Experiences

Select Option

Highlights

On arrival you will be seated in the bar, given a welcome drink (local beer, wine or soft drink) and will have a chat to meet and chat with the other guests. We will then sit at large communal tables where the host will give an introduction to the world of Scotch Malt Whisky - a brief history, the regional differences and a brief explanation of the differences between whiskies. We will then taste 6 Single Malts, each from well known, prestigious distilleries - from each of the whisky regions of Scotland. Guests will be given a tasting card and asked to choose from different flavours they might find in each whisky. Don't be intimidated, it's just for fun and is easier than you may think - one recent guest scored 17 out of 18 having never tasted whisky before ! You will also try and identify which region the whiskies come from and then we will finish with a blind nose test. The guest with the best score will win a certificate. You will then use your new found malt whisky knowledge to make your own blend from our whisky lab, a 50ml bottle with a personalised label is included - you will be able to buy more of your blend should you wish. We will finish the experience with tea or coffee and guests will be able to buy extra miniature or full size bottles of their blend as souvenirs or gifts.
