We start off 2013 by taking a number of different journeys.

Committee member Peter White has climbed a number of mountains over the years and has always taken a bottle of whiskey to enjoy at the summit.

This tasting will combine a global tour covering a number of different continents and thousands of kilometres. We will hear what it takes to tackle some of the world's greatest peaks and glimpse some of the scenery along the way.

Peter will guide us through a number of different journeys that he and others have taken and the whiskey that they have enjoyed there.
