“Balvenie has been around a long time and knows how to make a good Scotch!” The Whisky Wash

Why we love it

Located in famous whisky-soaked Speyside, The Balvenie distillery is one of only seven distilleries in the world with its own malting floor. Under the nose and knowledge of David Stewart MBE, the longest serving Malt Master in the Scotch whisky industry, Balvenie produces award-winning single malt from its own home-grown barley sown on their thousand-acre farm. Discover the flavours of this Speyside Scotch in a private tasting at Hyde Bar, a timeless drinking joint in a restored mid-19th century Mayfair mansion.

What's Included?

  • Experience The Balvenie whisky masterclass for one at the opulent Hyde Bar
  • Taste four unique Balvenie whiskies, including Balvenie 17 Years Old Sherry Cask, Balvenie 21 Years Old Port Wood, The Balvenie 30 Years Old and The Balvenie 40 Years Old
  • Enjoy a brief history of Balvenie whisky production, distillation, maturation, blending and other secrets
  • Finish with an exciting whisky cocktail, canapés to pair and a cheese platter

Description

Those looking to get away from the throngs of bustling London can find a haven in Hyde Bar, where classical luxury is at the forefront of every experience. A mere 5-minute walk from Paddington Station, the charming cocktail joint is presented within Roseate House London, a restored mid-19th century mansion overlooking the tree-lined Westbourne Terrace.

Inspired by the timeless heritage of the Grade II listed townhouse, this destination London bar offers an historic tribute to the hotel's Victorian past. Adorned with elegant chandeliers, classical portraits and plush velvet sofas, discover the distinctive taste of one of Speyside’s finest single malts - The Balvenie.

Enjoy a brief history of Scotch whisky production and learn about the fun stuff in the process: distillation, maturation, blending and other secrets. Then comes the best part - tasting four wee drams of The Balvenie’s finest!

You’ll kick off with the the flagship single malt from The Balvenie's small group of Port Wood whiskies. The bottling of this 21 year old single malt has been finished in thirty year old port pipes, giving her an elegant nose of white peach and a faint puff of smoke.

Move onto The Balvenie 30 Years Old, an especially fine single malt for which Malt Master David Stewart selects only exceptional casks laid down over thirty years ago. By marrying slowly aged whisky in traditional oak casks with that aged in European oak sherry casks, David creates a rich, mellow Scotch whisky with unusual depth and complexity.

Finally the Balvenie 17 Years Old Sherry Cask and The Balvenie 40 Years Old whisky. Finish with an exciting whisky cocktail prepared by one of Hyde Bar's experienced mixologists, accompanied by a selection of delicious canapés and a cheese platter.
