Notes: Campbeltown is one of the five recognised Scotch Whisky producing regions. It is an often overlooked region, that at one point in its history, referred to itself as “The Whisky Capital of the World.” Many of you may know the location of this area, thanks to a famous song about the Kintyre Peninsula created by one of its most famous residents – Sir Paul McCartney, however many of you may have never knowingly tried a Campbeltown whisky. This month you will be treated to six special whiskies, that allow you to taste all that the region has to offer.

As usual the whiskies will be tasted blind, in an informal atmosphere, where experience and learning are put before the need to know everything, so whether you are whisky mad or whisky curious, you will still enjoy the evening!

March – Battle of the British Bottles

Date: Thursday March 28th 2019 @ 7.30pm

Host: BWAS Organiser – Rob Prior – @RealDramRob

Theme: Whisky from the British Isles

Location: Upstairs Function Room @ The Volley Pub, King Street

Tickets: On Sale 26th February 2019 at 9am

Notes: With the potentially impending doom of Brexit (or joyous celebration – depending on your way of looking at the world) on the way, we thought that it would be fun to host a night of whisky taken from around the British Isles.

Expect to drink Scottish, English, Welsh and Irish whiskies that will hopefully surprise, delight and change your opinions of British whisky. We will search for the common threads that feature in all the whiskies, whilst exploring the glorious differences that each countries’ expressions have to offer.

Will you be able to tell them apart? Which will be your favourite? Will you even be able to attend the event in the post Brexit apocalypse?

Host: Billy Abbott – @cowfish on Twitter.

Theme: Spirit Character

Location: Upstairs Function Room @ The Volley Pub, King Street

Notes: 

We are lucky to welcome the walking whisky encyclopaedia that is Billy Abbott to Bristol for February’s tasting. He is a veteran of the UK whisky scene, who works for The Whisky Exchange, tasting, talking and writing about whisky on a pretty much 24/7 basis.

He will be bringing with him six whiskies that highlight the incredible range of flavours that come from the three simple ingredients that are put together to create whisky. The whisky on show will be taken from The Whisky Exchange’s exclusive collection. These fine spirits highlight the broad range of whiskies that are available both in their amazing shops and online in their web store that boasts over 9000 whiskies and fine spirits from all around the world!

As usual the whiskies will be tasted blind, in an informal atmosphere, where experience and learning are put before the need to know everything, so whether you are whisky mad or whisky curious, you will still enjoy the evening!
