Enjoy a full day whisky class in Newcastle. This whisky experience takes place in the heart of Newcastle city centre, located in a cosy gastropub not far from Newcastle station. You’ll be tasting up to 25 different whiskies whilst learning about the blending, production and maturation of this marvellous spirit. A two course lunch is included in this experience, so you can really sit back and enjoy your day of tastings and whisky fun.

This experience begins with an introduction to whisky led by your expert guide. You’ll receive an overview of the history of whisky, including the different regions of production and of course, you’ll be tasting as you go! You’ll then move onto the production of different malts, focusing on the maturation and how the differing methods effect the taste. Next on the syllabus is blending. You’ll have the chance to try your hand at blending whiskies as you taste your way through the history of this type of whisky. You’ll then move onto world whiskies, including Japanese, Taiwanese, Indian and American and how they are produced globally. To finish the day, you’ll take part in a ‘whisky exam’ where you can show off all the knowledge you’ve gained throughout the workshop. Successful candidates will earn themselves a whisky school graduation certificate, a special graduation dram and to top the day off, you'll walk away with a special Glencairn whisky tasting glass to commemorate your experience!
