We are delighted to announce our next June tasting, which focuses on the "World" whiskeys. Each expression distilled in countries, which are not usually associated with whiskey production.
We will have a chance to taste amazing expressions from Japan, Australia, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Each expression will be presented by the representative from the brand, which will give our members a chance to learn about the distillery and the history of the brand.
All expression are unique not only due to location of distillery but also the innovation in whiskey production or maturation. Some whiskeys we will try during the tasting are already sold out and unavailable to purchase due to high demand.
