This year, World Whisky Day falls on Saturday 15th May.
2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the event. Which means, there’s even more of an excuse to raise a dram and celebrate the ‘water of life’ with fellow whisky-lovers – from all across the globe.
So, why not treat yourself to one of our luxury whisky tasting sets?
Simply pick a set from our line-up, gather a group of six friends in your garden (socially distanced, of course!) and mark the special occasion with a whisky tasting evening. The only rules are to drink responsibly… and to share your celebrations by tagging us on Twitter and using #WorldWhiskyDay.
We have a fantastic selection of sets to choose from, with something to suit both whisky beginners and budding connoisseurs. And here we’ve rounded up our top three recommendations.
