Private Whisky Tastings

Are you a member of a club or association looking for an event with a difference on your club/society calendar? Look no further. Alan has an event which will be fun and informative and talked about in a positive way by all who attend. Alan offers a unique insight into the world of malt whisky through a whisky tasting event to be held at a location of your choice, even your home. Alan has a business background in Human Resource Management and People Development and combines this experience with his passion for malt whisky. View some examples of the type of work he does.

He recently spent some time on Islay, working at the Bruichladdich Distillery, as a student on their "Whisky Academy".For more detail on this wonderful distillery and what it has to offer click here. He qualified with the grand title of Single Malt Ambassador and even had to pass an exam! Alan is a self confessed whisky "nut" who has collected malt whisky for over 20 years building up an extensive collection of his own. He is turning his passion into a small business venture and sees his offering as an ideal "club event" or private event for a birthday treat or special occasion.

Fees will be based on an hourly rate on top of any costs of whisky (you decide on value) and any travel expenses ( only if travel is outwith a fifty mile radius of Edinburgh). Alternatively Alan can provide a cost per head based on quality of whisky.The cost generally works out at around £25/£50 per head for five/six malt whiskies and will include much more activity to add to the fun. We have a number of options for you to consider and if you wish a particular malt to be included then we can easily arrange that.

Some suggestions would be as follows:

A flight to Islay............... five of Islay's best and not all are "smoke monsters" !

A flight to the Lowlands.........sample those gentle drams from Glenkinchie, Bladnoch, Auchentoshan or even St Magdalene or Rosebank !

A flight to Speyside.........too many options to mention but some surprises here!!!!

A flight to the Islands..... Highland Park, Talisker, Arran, Tobermory  and more........!

Or.....the most popular....... A flight round the world..... Whiskies from all Scottish classifications and maybe some others!!!!

I think you can see that the variety of choices are endless and we will ensure you have a tasting event to suit your needs.

One thing worth mentioning is that you do not need to have a knowledge of whisky nor even a passion for it. The event will not just be about drinking the spirit but nosing and tasting and even matching with food. You do not need to be a whisky drinker as the fun is around making the event pleasurable for non-drinkers, drinkers and lovers of malts! It is certainly not a male only event as it is proven that females have a much more cultured nose than males do the competition starts here as they say!

Contact Alan and he will be happy to discuss your requirements.
