At Whiskybosh we are passionate about creating the perfect event for you that will showcase the most inspiring flavours and spark the imagination. Each of our whisky tastings is a unique creation designed around your specific needs and tastes. We can construct an unforgettable event around any theme from golf and horse racing to art and poetry. We can even provide one-off small casks of whisky that have been designed and matured specifically for your event. Take a look at our Designer Casks for more details.
Tastings that come to you
Rather than being fixed to a particular venue we have the flexibility to bring the Whiskybosh experience to our clients wherever they are in the world. To enhance your particular event we will create a unique experience that will perfectly compliment your chosen venue be that for a celebration, wedding, conference or corporate function.
We can accommodate any style of event however we specialise in two formats for whisky tastings that can be tailored to fit around your specific requirements. For sit-down events and intimate occasions we would recommend a Tutored Whisky Tasting whilst for more informal style functions such as weddings, receptions and corporate networking we would recommend a Flavour Station.
Whisky Flavour Stations
Tutored Whisky Tastings
Contrary to common belief not everyone loves whisky. To please the palates of guests with different tastes and for large social functions such as weddings, receptions or corporate events we offer our Flavour Stations. Rather than a seated tasting this format provides guests with the freedom to approach our Flavour Stations at their own leisure to tantalize their senses with the finest whiskies. We offer single stations or multiple stations depending on the amount of guests, each with a different theme to suit the occasion.
Designed to compliment formal dinners, seated functions and intimate socialising our Tutored Tastings are delightfully entertaining and engaging. Full of fascinating sensory science and stories, our tastings create a captivating and social ambience designed to stimulate and entertain the guests. For groups of 2 upwards these are memorable and imaginative events that often spark new interests in whisky and flavour. Our most popular formats include either 3 or 5 drams that can be paired with individual dinner courses if required.
Engraved Whisky Tasting Glasses
As part of our truly bespoke and personalised service we also offer custom engraved Whisky Glasses. The glasses can be engraved with a choice of stock designs along with a personal message or text of your choice, however we also provide the option of a fully custom design. Our fully custom design service not only creates an entirely one-off Whisky Glass but it is also the perfect platform for corporate branding and promotion. The glasses come with our unique gift boxes to make the perfect gift.
Our engraved Whisky Glasses and gift boxes are a popular choice for wedding tastings, birthday celebrations and corporate functions. Your guests can have the opportunity to use their own Whisky Glass for a tasting before taking it home as a lasting and memorable memento.
The Glencairn glasses that we use are a excellent choice for whisky tastings by concentrating the aromas around the rim of the glass. They are also robust and sturdy to stand up to social events such as wedding receptions.
More than just a Tasting
The term 'whisky tasting' is a misleading one. It puts the emphasis on taste which we know is only a very small part of the process of whisky enjoyment. At Whiskybosh whisky events we take a broader approach by looking at flavour in terms of sight, sound, touch and aroma alongside taste. With this in mind we can create truly memorable events for any occasion and take the upmost pleasure in surpassing all preconceptions for what a whisky tasting is.
We are here to entertain, educate and to bring an individual flare to your event, be that a small group tasting or a banquet paired with drams. Allow the experts in sensory satisfaction to design and deliver an experience that will be truly memorable. By carefully listening to and understanding our clients needs we can tailor a tasting to fit around and compliment other activities such as golf, horse racing, Scottish tours or fishing. Feel free to contact us to discuss your tasting event, no matter how ambitious, small or unusual.
One of our more creative and unique creations is to encourage guests to express flavour through fancy dress. Each individual dram can be expressed not just in terms of flavour adjectives but also by exploring textures, colours and weight. These events are enormously entertaining and empower the guests to openly express their experience of whisky without the faer of ‘getting it wrong’.
“Why did you choose to wear a balaclava for this whisky?”
“Because when I taste it… it’s like I’m wearing a balaclava… but inside my head!”.
