Why we love it

Experience the highlights of the Highlands as you taste a variety of Scottish whiskies and learn about the origins of each. You’ll also discover the scents and subtle notes of flavour in each of the single malts you taste, as well as accentuating the complex characteristics with beautiful British cheeses, perfectly paired with each.

What's Included?

  • Discover the highlights of the Highlands with an Essential Scottish Whisky Masterclass for two at The Bar at The Athenaeum
  • Learn about the production process of whisky from various parts of Scotland
  • Taste four 25ml drams of whisky from across Scotland, such as Balvenie Double Wood (17 yrs), Hazelburn (8yrs), Cutty Sark (25yrs), Lagavulin Distillers Edition
  • Enjoy the pairing of each whisky with a fine British cheese

Description

Whisky has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, partly in thanks to the revival of the Old Fashioned, a classic cocktail brought back to the limelight by the TV series Mad Men. This has meant that whisky has been thrown to the forefront once again – which is great news for whisky lovers. It is commonly known that wine can be matched with many foods to enhance the flavour profiles, so the question is, could the same be said about whisky?

During your masterclass at The Bar at the Athenaeum, you’ll be guided through four different flavour profiles from various parts of Scotland. Understanding how they are 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 Balvenie Double Wood (17 yrs) and Ragstone Cheese; Hazelburn (8yrs) and Tunworth Cheese; Cutty Sark (25yrs) and Devon Blue Cheese; and Lagavulin Distillers Edition and Westcombe Cheddar. 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.
