Whisky Tasting in London

We have a long history of running excellent whisky and fine spirit tastings. They are extremely popular and give whisky and spirit lovers the chance to meet the people responsible for making their favourite drams. The majority of our tastings are whisky based, but we cover a wide range, including Cognac, rum and even Tequila. Below is a list of some of the most popular TWE tastings we have held over the years:

Distillery manager Michael Heads brought down some very interesting Ardbegs, including some fascinating single casks.

Compass Box
Whisky evangelist John Glaser took us through a stellar line-up of gems from Compass Box's history to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary.

Highland Park
Distillery Ambassador Gerry Tosh showed a range of delights including the 18yo, 30yo and 40yo in a real powerhouse of a tasting.

Suntory Distilleries
Shingo Torii, Master Blender took us through some incredible highlights from the Yamazaki & Hakushu distilleries.

Darroze Armagnac
Pierre Chollet, Global Ambassador took us through the range of fascinating single cask/vintage Armagnacs as well as something very special from 1900.

Dalmore, Whyte & Mackay
Richard Paterson, Whisky Legend. Say no more.

Irish Distillers
Ed McAvoy from Jameson presented some top-end Irish drams including Redbreast 15 and Midleton Very Rare.

Annabel Meikle joined us for the launch of the very successful and very delicious Sonnalta, while Signet was also a great hit on the night.

Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne's Distillery Manager, took us on a full X-Factor Journey as we decided which of 3 single casks we were going to bottle as a special edition for TWE.
