Glasgow Whisky Tasting

Scotland is renowned for its whisky. If France has wine and Ireland has Guinness, then Scotland is the go-to region to sample this age-old spirit. Whisky Tasting in Glasgow will teach you everything you need to know about this ever-popular tipple. Learn the difference between a single malt and different blends to determine what truly makes a Scotch, you and your party will be taken through every aspect of the spirit’s fascinating story and you’ll learn some absorbing facts along the way.

Did you know, for example, that only Scottish ‘whisky’ is spelt without an ‘e’? For anywhere else, its spelt as ‘whiskey’.

You’ll be guided through the delicious aromas and flavours of the different regions of Scotland. From the Highlands, that boast flavours of oak, fruit cake and heather to the Lowlands , which provides notes of honeysuckle, cinnamon and toffee. There is an abundance of distilleries that span this historical land and so a Whisky Tasting session in Glasgow is vital in being able to understand and distinguish the various malts.

A Shady History

Whisky Tasting in Glasgow

Handling a liquor that has had its run-in with the law makes Whisky Tasting in Glasgow all-the-more exciting. In Scotland, this spirit can be traced back to the 1400s, where over this century it grew in popularity before finally being noticed by the Scottish parliament, and taxes were eventually introduced in the 1600s. This began a game of cat and mouse and several illicit distilleries attempted sneaky tactics in order to evade the law. Smuggling was common practice and even priests would hide a bottle or two away from prying eyes!

You’ll learn all about this and more in a 90-minute Whisky Tasting class class. Sessions are fun, interactive and informative, making this a fantastic experience for anyone celebrating a birthday party in Glasgow
