Whisky Tasting- Independent Bottlers
June 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$260
Here is your chance to understand, explore and taste some of Scotlands best Independent Bottled Whisky! Once you look beyond the whiskies that are released by distilleries, you will uncover a whole new whisky world out there: the world of Independent Bottlers!
Did you know that distilleries don’t own every cask of whisky hidden in the warehouses of Scotland? Sure; they make the new spirit but as soon as it leaves the still it can go on an adventure with distilleries swapping both new spirit and casks of mature whisky.
As a result; we now live in a world with lots of other whisky companies out there, who are independent of the distilleries, meaning they can experiment to make a whisky completely unique from its original source and some of them are the best selling whiskies in the world.
Join Malt Masters whisky experts and let us take you on a journey of Independent Bottler discovery; tasting 4 Independant Bottles from different Scottish regions and let us guide you through their unique tastes, aromas and origin stories!
