Private Whisky Tastings in York

Nobody in York can offer such authentic whisky tastings as we do. We’ve worked in the whisky industry for many years. David was Distillery Manager at one of the largest malt whisky distilleries in Scotland, the mighty Caol Ila Distillery on the windswept and beautiful Isle of Islay. He’s lucky enough to have been given the responsibility of choosing whisky for limited edition bottlings and before moving to Islay regularly bottled his own single casks.

Our competitors hosting whisky tastings are brand ambassadors or sales representatives and whilst their events are engaging, they cannot offer the authenticity that we do, given our experience at the coal face of whisky production.

Whisky Tasting

The 25th January is always a busy day for us, we are always in demand for our whisky tasting services. The week of Burns Night can be pretty busy too but we have one or two evenings free if you would like us to host a special Burns Night whisky tasting for you.

Burns Night

Burns Night is a celebration of the life and poetry of Robbie Burns usually held on or near the 25th January. Traditionally Burns Night involves the recital of Robbie’s poems along with bagpipes, a haggis supper and of course good single malt whisky.

Burns Night Whisky Tastings

Whisky plays a big part in any Burns Night celebration. Every year we host whisky tastings throughout the UK during the week of Burns Night for customers who are hosting a celebration or a Burns Supper. Sometimes we pair whiskies with a Burns supper, we love to show a smokey peaty dram such as Talisker, Laphroaig or Caol Ila along side a good spicy traditional haggis.

Whisky Tastings

We host whisky tasting events and masterclasses all over the UK and can arrange a private tasting for any group size at your home, party venue or business address. Our whisky tastings take many formats from regional whisky tastings to rare whisky tastings and we also host whisky dinners.

Your host David Wood has worked in the whisky industry for many years, recently he worked at both Lagavulin and Caol Ila distilleries on the Isle of Islay and more recently was distillery manager at Caol Ila Distillery. David’s tastings are as authentic as can be. Whilst most whisky tastings are hosted by sales reps or brand ambassadors or even people who have never visited a malt whisky distillery, David has worked at the coal face of whisky production making an ideal and extremely knowledgeable host for your guests.

Our tastings are fun and informative, they are suitable for the newcomer to the wonderful world of single malt whisky and for the seasoned enthusiast.

Regional Whisky Tasting

Our regional whisky tastings are an imbibing journey around the whisky producing regions of Scotland. Guests enjoy a whisky from the regions of Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, Islands, Campbeltown and Islay. During this tasting David demonstrates the diversity in whisky profiles produced by many distilleries in Scotland.

As part of the regional malt whisky tasting, guests will learn how single malt whisky makes the special journey from field to table. David often takes guests on a virtual distillery tour so that he can offer an in-depth explanation about the whisky making process.

Islay Whisky Tasting

We have lived on Islay and still work on this beautiful island. There are no less than 8 iconic malt whisky distilleries in production on Islay at the moment with a 9th, Ardnahoe Distillery being built right now and rumours of more in planning process. Islay distilleries produce an incredible array of whisky profiles from rich and sweet drams to smokey, medicinal, phenolic, big peaty monsters. There is a dram for everyone on Islay, the whisky isn’t all about the peat. Given our experience at the coal face of whisky production on Islay, we offer a real insight in to what it is like to live and work on the island and an in-depth look at each distillery and the whiskies made there.

This tasting is a must for anyone who is thinking about visiting the magic Isle of Islay. Like all of our tastings it is fun and informative and suitable for the newcomer to single malt whisky and for the seasoned enthusiast.

Rare Whisky Tasting

Our rare whisky tastings showcase whiskies that are hard to find. They may be drams from distilleries that no longer exist, they might be extremely rare distillery only bottlings or limited editions. Often drams in our rare whisky tastings are from single cask bottlings most of which are bottled at natural cask strength.

Whisky Dinner

If you are planning a dinner for your guests we can match each course with the perfect dram. Usually David will talk about the history of Scotch whisky and how whisky is made before dinner and then will introduce each whisky before each course. David will explain why he has paired that whisky to that particular course before guests enjoy their dram with the food.
