“So impressive, I’ll go back at the first opportunity I get!” Business Traveller

Why we love it

Accessed via a discrete entrance on Down Street, this intimate and elegant bar is known for its impressive whisky collection, fine wine and cocktails. As part of a creation by the Galvin brothers, the bar is the seductive older sister of the restaurant, offering a quiet and stylish space to clink glasses. Whether you’re a whisky connoisseur or simply beginning your spirited journey, The Bar at The Athenaeum is a great place to discover whisky.

What's Included?

  • Become a master of malt with the Discover Whisky Masterclass for two at The Bar at The Athenaeum
  • Learn about the production process of whisky from countries such as Japan, Scotland, Ireland and USA
  • Taste four 25ml drams of whisky from across the world, such as Nikka Black Malt, Redbreast Lusteau Edition, Willet’s Bourbon, Dalmore Cigar Malt
  • Enjoy the pairing of each whisky with a fine British cheese

Description

Whisky is purchased both ‘en primeur’ (before it has been aged) and ‘ready-to-drink’ casks. The former being somewhat of a gamble as they claim that 50% of these casks turn out not to have produced whisky suitable for single-cask bottling. That which is bottled is not pasteurised, nor is there any caramel or colouring added. What you get is 100% pure unadulterated and cask-strength whisky.

During your masterclass at The Bar at the Athenaeum, you’ll be guided through four different flavour profiles from whiskies across the globe. Understanding how each is produced and distributed, you’ll then sample a 25ml dram of each. To complement the whisky, premium cheeses are included throughout the tasting, highlighting the complex characteristics of each.

Perfectly paired are Nikka Black Malt and Double Gloucester Cheese; Redbreast Lusteau Edition and Wigmore Cheese; Willet’s Bourbon and Lancashire Bomb; and Dalmore Cigar Malt and Beenleigh Blue Cheese. Discerning your favourites, you’ll then have the opportunity to relax in the intimate ambience of the bar, asking the expert mixologist any questions you may have. Malts that match so perfectly with food are bound to leave you wanting more!
