The night starts with a cocktail and a selection of deli boards, before the private tasting session begins with a selection of Woodford Reserve’s products.

As each dram is served, a brand ambassador talks about the whiskies, giving you a well-rounded overview of what to expect with each sip. For those who are new to whiskey, it can be helpful to know which flavours to look out for, where to taste it on your palate and how to make the most out of such a rich flavour experience.

If you are already familiar with whiskey drinking etiquette, this is an invaluable opportunity to pick the brains of someone who works with the makers and shares that passion.

Booking in advance is essential, it’s best to book early as tastings usually prove to be popular.
