HOW DOES A VIRTUAL WHISKEY TASTING WORK?
First off, decide whether you want to go for a private or public session. Our private sessions are a great option for groups of 6 or more, whilst groups of 5 or less are a great fit for our public sessions which run fortnightly.
Once you've made your booking we'll get to work. Your box, containing everything each guest will need for the tasting, including the premium spirits, glassware and a stirrer to help chill down their welcome drink, will arrive in the days leading up to the session. The pack also includes an annotated tasting mat that outlines all the spirits you’ll be playing with, as well as guidance on how to set up and what to prepare in advance so that everyone has the same set up in front of them on the day.
On the day of your tasting, you will receive a link via email from your chosen video conferencing software. Once everyone has logged in, enjoy a complimentary whisk(e)y-based cocktail whilst your class instructor outlines the entertaining and rich history of whisk(e)y around the globe and how it became one of the world’s favourite spirits. Simply pour over ice and stir down to your taste using the stirrer we provide in your pack.

Your expert host will then guide through a range of five very different whiskies, carefully handpicked by our resident whiskey experts, and will teach you how to pick up and identify variations in their classic flavour profiles.
We will always conceal a sixth ‘mystery’ spirit and, in order to ignite some healthy group discussion, we will ask guests to taste it and, based off its telltale characteristics, tell us what style the liquid represents and even what region they think it was produced in. This is a great way to bring everyone together at the end of the hour-and-a-half tasting, as well as to test and share people’s newfound knowledge. It’s also a good chance for us to throw out some cool prizes if your host is suitably impressed.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE SET?
Inside every box, we include a 120ml measure of a whisk(e)y-based welcome cocktail, stirred over ice. That's enough for two servings so you can share with a lucky somebody at home.. or not, if the feeling takes you.
Selection of Premium Whiskies
Our resident whiskey experts have spent the past year painstakingly selecting the best expressions from a variety of categories and styles. Inside each box we include five 75ml measures of whisk(e)y, enough for two generous servings of each.
We also conceal an unmarked 75ml mystery bottle, which you’ll be invited to nose and taste to see if you can guess where you think it’s from and what style of whiskey it represents.
We include two industry-quality tasting glasses as standard, so you and your plus one be able to nose, swill and taste like a pro.
You’ll find two handily-marked tasting mats inside your box, specifically designed to help you follow and drink along at home with ease.
The ideal tool to achieve the ideal level of dilution in every dram, we’ll include one professional-quality drinks stirrer as standard in every box.
We’ll also include a range of aromatics closely related to the production of the distinct whiskies you’ll be tasting on the day, helping us to create a truly interactive multisensory virtual experience.
Last but not least, in your box you’ll also find all the guidance you’ll need to set yourselves up, including what you’ll need to prepare beforehand.
Snacks (optional extra)
What’s a round of drinks without nibbles? For an extra £10 per person, we’ll include some Serrano ham, Spanish olives, Cheese, and Rosemary Focaccia pairings.
