Looking for the ideal gift for a whisky lover? Or perhaps you’d like to treat yourself to some whisky miniatures? You’ve found the perfect place. Whisky Tasting Company is a leading bottler of Scotch whisky and we offer a diverse range of luxury whisky gifts and tasting sets.
Whether you’re new to the liquor or well-attuned to its distinctive flavour, we have everything you need to enjoy the drink (and become a whisky connoisseur) from the comfort of your own home.
A one-off treat or a long-term subscription
All of our whisky gift sets are available to buy as a one-off. As such, they’re a fantastic treat – either for yourself or a lucky friend – and can be purchased for a special occasion or event. They can also be branded and bought in large quantities for use within a business or organisation.
We also offer several whisky subscriptions, including a:
- three-set whisky subscription
- one year whisky subscription
- one year silver whisky subscription
- one year rare and premium whisky subscription.
Whichever subscription you choose, the whisky sets will be delivered quarterly (i.e. every three months), allowing you to learn about and taste a variety of different whiskies throughout the year.
Send whisky as a gift
We also have a comprehensive range of whisky miniature gift sets. These are a thoughtful gift for a whisky lover; something they’ll love and appreciate – and remember for many years to come!
You can choose either a standard set from our core range, or one that has been expertly curated to mark a particular occasion or milestone. Perhaps the lucky recipient is getting married or walking you down the aisle? Perhaps they’re celebrating a special birthday? Or maybe they just need a little something to cheer them up? There’s a tasting set in our collection to put a smile on their face.
All of our whisky miniature gift sets can be personalised with a small message and are available for a fair price. If you’re feeling particularly generous, you could even treat them to a 3 or 12 month subscription. Send our whisky as a gift and show that special person just how much you care.
What can be found in our whisky tasting sets?
Each whisky tasting set comes beautifully presented in a hand-made box and includes:
Three or five whisky miniatures
Depending on the specific set chosen, it will feature either three or five whisky miniatures. These are re-bottled at our professional facility in Scotland and come in 30ml measures – which is just enough to savour the special taste and truly appreciate the unique flavour of each.
We have a diverse range of whiskies for you to choose from. Selected from some of the best whisky brands in Scotland (and beyond), these can be separated into three main categories:
1. Core whiskies
Our core whisky range includes everything from single malts to fantastic blends. You’ll find limited edition and award-winning malt and grain options created by artisan makers, as well as whiskies with a range of different finishes (such as sherry, port, or rioja). We even have whiskies that have been finished in some of the world’s finest wine casks, such as Chateau d’Yquem or Chateau Lafite.
2. Old and rare whiskies
This collection features a range of old and rare whisky gift sets, including whiskies that were produced by long-lost yet popular distilleries and irreplaceable limited editions.
3. Birthday whiskies
We also have a range of whisky sets, specifically designed to be given as a birthday gift. These include aged whiskies – including 30, 40, and 50 year old liquors to match the recipient’s age.
Whisky tasting cards
All of our whisky miniature gift sets come complete with a series of tasting cards. These provide educational and interesting facts about the whiskies and include information about the:
- whisky region
- whisky maker or bottler
- original bottle
- flavours to look-out for
- limited edition details
- cask type
Stored in a luxury branded envelope, the tasting cards are a great keepsake. You can show them to your friends and family or perhaps collect cards from a particular region or distillery. If you wish, the information can also be used to track down an original bottle of your favourite whisky from the set.
A whisky tasting mat
Finally, inside each whisky set, you will also find a luxury whisky tasting mat. This is printed with a unique shot of a Scottish landscape or distillery – taken by our in-house photographer, Elizabeth Evans – and gives the set a high-end, sophisticated touch. It offers the perfect place to set out your whiskies and, as you take a sip of each, you can record your notes in the space provided.
