Booking policy

Bristol Whisky Appreciation Society is run by whisky enthusiasts as a hobby, on a not for profit basis. As a result, the following information applies when you book on to an event:

Booking spaces at a session

Upcoming sessions will publicised in the monthly email newsletter, on Twitter, Facebook, and periodically on this site.  We will aim to send out information a few days ahead of booking opening, so that you get some advance warning. We will also aim to vary the time and dates that the booking opens, so that no one misses out because they are at work/holiday/out of signal range/etc!

Spaces per booking

Because of the limited size of the sessions, you’re only able to book a maximum of 4 spaces for any one tasting.


If you can’t make it to a tasting that you’ve booked, let us know by email, Twitter or Facebook with as much notice as possible.

Whiskies are bought in advance of the tasting, so it’s not possible to refund money for bookings once they’ve been made.

If you’ve told us you can’t make it to a session you’ve booked, we’re happy to offer your space(s) around to anyone else who might be interested – if we find a taker then we’ll take payment from them and then refund you the money which you paid.

We will do our best to make sure all spaces at tastings are filled, because it’s more fun when there’s more people there!

Advance payments

All bookings must be paid for at time of booking – we will be using Eventbrite to handle the ticketing and payment process and sadly we will have to pass the booking fees on to you.
