Tastings gathering 2022

Every year we create a mix of different tastings so there is something for everyone. Currently, we are creating the program for this year’s tasting events and we have something nice already.

Two tastings per day in different price ranges. From old and rare bottles to the newest or yet-to-be-released.

But that is not all, we will create pop-up tastings which will be free of charge and will be announced during the Gathering.

Whisky dinner

In 2019 the Whisky Dinner sold out in minutes, we never announce the bottles in advance. The lineup for 2019 was: Banff 1966, Port Ellen 1983, Longmorn 1973, Glenlossie 1975 all bottled by Blackadder. None of the people attending the dinner had tasted these whiskies before. For this year we have planned the same approach: find bottles that only a few people have tasted before, score high or seem to be very interesting to try. Limited amount of seats available and a great way to start the Gathering weekend.

Expect good food, interesting and old whisky, good atmosphere and a great crowd.

Tickets for the dinner will go on sale on the 6th of September.
