Notes: This is our first evening tasting event and it is going to be a really special one. Jason, one of our organising team will be dipping into his amazing collection of whisky to treat us to some special Speyside whisky treats.

For those of you that don’t know, Speyside is a relatively small area of North East Scotland located around the River Spey in Moray, Badenoch and Strathspey. Despite it’s diminutive size, it is home to over half of all the distilleries in Scotland. It is famed for creating a specific style of whiskies, which are light and grassy or sweet and rich depending on the cask type that they are finished in.
