Last year we enjoyed an amazing evening creating our very own whisky blend courtesy of The Art of Blending hosted by Brand ambassador Phil Huckle.
The class gives whisky lovers a unique opportunity to learn more about the heritage and fine art of blending aged Scotch whiskies and if you fancy trying your hand at conjouring up your own blend then you’re in luck! They have more dates announced and we definitely recommend going!
The class brings alive the intricacies of note, flavour and blend, and the methods and traditions pioneered by James and John Chivas in the mid 1800’s, carefully handed down over the generations to Chivas Master Blenders and still in use today.
“The art of the Master Blender in understanding the many different flavours in Scotch whisky is like the work of a composer: not only do you need to completely understand the musical characteristics of every instrument, but you must also understand how to combine them to build an unforgettable, spellbinding symphony.” Master Blender Colin Scott
