Why we love it

Located in the Georgian enclave of Devonshire Square, Mac & Wild is an authentic Scottish restaurant that brings the finest of Scottish produce to the capital. Below ground, Mac & Wild's unique whisky den, complete with a back-bar of more than 100 whiskies and cosy armchairs, is the setting for this immersive tasting unlike any other. Here, you'll discover that drinking in the dark heightens senses, accentuates flavours and brings a whole new depth to whisky.

What's Included?

  • Experience a 90-minute 'Drams in the Dark' Whisky Tasting for two at Mac & Wild Devonshire Square
  • Enjoy this fully immersive, multi-sensory whisky tasting experience with Blair Bowman, whisky consultant and author
  • Begin with candlelit welcome drinks and a warm introduction from your tasting host
  • Travel through a tasting of four drams with your senses heightened by complete darkness
  • Complement each whisky with a carefully-selected canapé to enhance the flavou

Description

Mac & Wild offers a unique experience of whisky tasting in a pitch-black room, hosted by whisky consultant and author, Blair Bowman. Involved in the whisky industry for nearly ten years, Bowman is the proud founder of World Whisky Day.

He hosts multi-sensory whisky tastings around the world, and is the author of the bestselling 'Pocket Guide to Whisky: featuring the WhiskyTubeMap'. He also sits on judging panels at whisky competitions and acts as a consultant to the whisky industry on a wide variety of matters.

During your whisky tasting experience, darkness will be introduced slowly to help you adjust: first with a warm candlelit welcome, followed by a drink and introduction to the process. As the lights start to fade, your host will take you on a journey of knowledge and origins. Guided through four drams of whisky, each will be paired with a carefully selected canapé to highlight the complexities of the flavour profiles.

With a heightened sense of what tasting whisky really means, you definitely won’t feel like you’ve been kept in the dark!
