From the team behind the highly acclaimed Ginstitute and Distillery comes our brand new educatory experience The Whiskey Thing. An in depth look into the wonderful category of Whiskey, covering everything from history and production to flavour profiles and most importantly of all, tastings. With 10 spirit tastings from a curated selection of premium global whiskies, this is a unique opportunity for whiskey connoisseurs as well as the perfect introduction to the category for whiskey novices. Once guests have explored the production process, what goes in to the spirit and what tastes and flavours they enjoy, they will ultimately blend their own ‘one of one’ 70cl bottle to take home. The Team have carefully selected whiskeys from around the world, including rare blends, meaning the whiskeys enjoyed and blended on The Whiskey Thing make it a truly exclusive experience.

How to book

Tickets to The Whiskey Thing are normally £140 per person but as an esteemed friend of the ginstitute and distillery we are offering these at an intoductory rate of £120.  Each session lasts around three hours. Each blender will receive two drinks during the session as well as a whisky tasting covering 10 different whiskies from around the world so we suggest you eat before visiting. You will graduate from the course after blending your own unique, one of a kind whiskey blend to take away with you on the day that you will have the chance to label and wax seal.

We are currently releasing tickets for the first chance to attend along with a limited number of dates. Bookings for each session need to be made in advance, but not at the time of purchase. Follow the link below for more information and to view the session times which are currently available.
