News ... Whisky tastings at The Whisky Shop, London

the whisky shop, london branchThe London branch of The Whisky Shop chain has just announced its new Spring whisky tasting programme. During each evening, the subjects of how whisky is made, the history of whisky and how to taste whisky are covered before trying a diverse selection of fine single malts. The exciting new series of events cover three of the current hot topics within the whisky world - independent bottlers, cask strength whisky and the rise of Japanese whisky. The branch is also available for private corporate tastings on request.

Independent Bottling Companies

Wednesday 11 March @ 6.30pm £45 each
The evening will begin with a look at the history of whisky and how the spirit is made. The focus will then shift to the independent bottling companies, their history and what they contribute to the industry. We will then concentrate on the work of the Douglas Laing company and have selected five bottlings to taste from across their range, with the emphasis on championing lesser known distilleries.

Japanese Whisky
Wednesday 8 April @ 6.30pm £40 each
The popularity of Japanese whisky is growing rapidly following the winning of a number of high profile awards. Here, we plan to bring the flavours of Japan to a wider audience and explain how they are pushing the traditional boundaries of whisky making. We will look at the history of the industry in Japan and then taste four of the best whiskies that are exported to this country. Come along to try something different and see what all the fuss is about!

GlenKeir Treasures Cask Strength Range
Wednesday 22 April @ 6.30pm £50 each
The GlenKeir Treasures series is exclusive to The Whisky Shop chain. The whiskies are specially selected and those in the Cask Strength range are the premium available. Just one cask of each is released, making them extremely desirable and limited. Each whisky is bottled at the strength that it comes out of the cask to ensure maximum flavour and quality. For this evening, we will taste four whiskies from this series, including a 40 year old, giving further background about each of the featured distilleries.
