Last Friday of the month starting May 2016 until Friday December 16th 2016.

If you want to have a more advanced tasting then this is for you. All the whiskies chosen for this tasting are aged 21 years and above, coming from the range available in-store within our single cask and small batch collections.

The evening starts off with a short introduction to the company and why we bottle from single casks. The history behind the company is important to truly understand why we are the only company to hold such a large collection of rare single malts from some of Scotland’s greatest distilleries.

As we delve into the whiskies we will discover the taste profile from each malt, the wood style, cask size and how age and %Vol can differ depending on the cask rather than just the age.

This session is also a very different event compared to the Trip nights as we drop the Canapés in favour of cheese & chocolate for example. The pairing of whisky with chocolate & cheese can deliver a taste explosion across the palate!

You can book a Vintage 21+ as a private event with a minimum of 10 to a max of 12 people the cost is £42.50 per person
