A Whisky Tasting Tuesday 14th October 7pm

Another fantastic Whisky tasting evening with the guys from The Whisky Lounge on Tuesday 14th October.                                                                                          Douglas-Laing-3.0-539x199

For this series we’re bringing you some tasty offerings from one of the largest Indie Bottlers, Douglas Laing.

These guys have been bottling whisky for decades and since their conception they have been gleaning and maturing a wealth of casks from distilleries all over Scotland. Alongside an enormous collection of single releases, more recently Douglas laing have been assembling a handful of cracking blended (vatted) malts too.

Now, if any of you are wondering what an Indie Bottler is? Heres a swift explanation…

In a nut shell an Independent Bottler is a buisness that buy casks from any number of distilleries and bottle said casks under their own name. These casks are normally bottled as they are with no colouring, no chill filtration and at a natural cask strength.

 

This in turn creates a dizzying array of whiskies, which are all different!

 

In short, if it weren’t for Indie Bottler’s the world of whisky would not be nearly as interesting as it is, and that is a cold hard FACT.

As usual you’ll be tasting through six whiskies on the night alongside one of our experts, who will be on hand to entertain and enlighten you in the ways of the dram.

 

Tickets are £20.00 and available from www.thewhiskeylounge.com or call 01904410841

It’ll be a great night and look forward to seeing you all there
