One of guest favourites is our private tasting session.

Join our expert Sandy Kenneway for an experience in spirit tasting. Unlock your tools for tasting to understand the drink and how best to enjoy it. As well as the specific tastings with whisky & cheese, we can also arrange a simple whisky tasting, a locally crafted gin tasting, or a bespoke cocktail tasting with Sandy.

All of our experiences are designed to be engaging and fun, and bespoke to you and your booking.

Your Instructor

Sandy Kenneway has around 25 years of experience in the world of quality drinks, from managing Scotland’s largest wine shop to helping with the opening of Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh and striking out with his own businesses 10 years ago.

He is passionate about promoting Scotland’s amazing whiskies – with gins, cocktails, rums, beers and all other things fermented close behind. Sandy hosts fun, informative tasting events across Britain, including his hugely popular workshops at Glen Dye and in Hawarden at Summer Camp and The Good Life Experience.

As well as whisky & cheese tasting, we can also arrange a simple whisky tasting, a locally crafted gin tasting, a more traditional wine tasting or a bespoke cocktail making and tasting with Sandy. Please enquire for more details.
