An elegant whisky tasting for spirited amateurs
Tuesday 25th March, 7pm at The Hoxton Hotel.
Drinks Galore believe that there’s nothing better than tasting unique spirits in the company of great people. We’re talking about the kind of evening where you can learn as much from the person next to you as from the drink-swilling expert. With spirited amateurs in mind, we’re holding our first spirit tasting and have chosen to begin with the mightiest of them all: whisky.
Ah, whisky: often loved, often misunderstood. It’s been the making of many, the curse of a few and is fast becoming the self-respecting Londoner’s drink of choice. So, with help of our friends from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, we’ve put together a tasting event like no other in the sumptuous surrounds of The Hoxton Hotel.
So if you’ve been honed on Old Fashioneds and Whisky Sours but want to know more, this is your chance. Come to understand the craft, beauty and dedication that it takes to make a fine dram. We want you to join us in doing all of this with a good crowd, in a relaxed (and snob free) environment where no matter whether you like your whisky malt, your whiskey bourbon or a bit of a blend you’ll leave all the richer.
What you'll get on the night
- You’ll taste four no, FIVE incredible and unique drams, these one-of-a-kind ephemeral whiskies are cask strength – the way whisky is truly meant to be tasted.
- A whisky cocktail on arrival, using a rare and wondrous grain whisky
- Chill out in the wonderful private space at The Hox
- Friendly, expert information about the whisky
We have had great interest already and will sell out, so get tickets early to avoid missing out
