Our Whisky Tasting Sets provide everything you need to hold your own whisky tasting, whether on your own or with a group of friends. Ideal for beginners or whisky enthusiasts, enabling you to become a whisky connoisseur in the comfort of your own home. You can buy as a one-off gift, or receive sets monthly or quarterly, tasting dozens of varieties per year.
Each Whisky Tasting Set is individually presented in a beautiful hand finished box and comes complete with the following:
Three or Five fine whiskies
Choose from Single Malts or fantastic Blends. Limited editions, including whisky from Single Casks (the most individual whisky you can get) are available, or you might like to choose some award-winning blended malt or grain whisky from our artisan whisky makers.
You might like to compare whisky of different ages so you learn the effects of aging in an oak cask, or you might like to appreciate the effect of various finishes such as Sherry, Port or Rioja. We even have a range of whiskies finished in some of the world’s finest wine casks, such as Chateau d'Yquem or Chateau Lafite.
Each bottle in the set is 30ml, more than enough for you to appreciate the special nature of each whisky. Each bottle label replicates (with the producer’s permission) the information on the original whisky bottle we have taken the whisky from.
note: whisky glasses are available as an accessory (i.e. not included within the set).
Whisky Tasting Cards
The Whisky Tasting Set comes with a neat storage envelope containing Tasting Cards for each whisky in the set. The envelope is subtly branded with our logo, which features barley – a natural ingredient of malt whisky.
Whisky Tasting Cards provide lots of educational information about your whisky and are a great keepsake. You might want to keep the cards with you in the special envelope so you can show your family and friends the fine whiskies you’ve tasted and learnt about.
Each tasting card has individual information about the whisky such as:
Distillery - Whisky Region - Whiskymaker or bottler - Photograph of the original bottle - Flavours to look for - Limited Edition details - Cask type - Strength
Many people like to collect the cards to create a set from a particular region or distillery. Others use the cards so they can go searching for an original bottle of the whisky they enjoyed most.
Whisky Tasting Mat
The perfect accompaniment to Scotch whisky, each set comes with a Whisky Tasting Mat, a place where you can set out your whiskies and record your notes in a most civilised manner.
Our photographer, Elizabeth Evans, takes beautiful photographs of Scottish landscapes, distilleries, flora and fauna for us to decorate the tasting mats.
Each time you receive a set you will have a tasting mat with one of Elizabeth’s images that is sure compliment your sense of enjoyment from each whisky, providing a special record of your whisky tasting experience.
