Sample Whisky journeys for groups at The Balmoral

From next month Rocco Forte’s The Balmoral is launching a selection of whisky tastings giving groups the opportunity to sample a range of fine Scottish Whiskies in the presence of a knowledgeable whisky ambassador. The Whisky Journeys provide an interesting team building experience and offer the perfect antidote to a busy day of meetings.

Delegates will be able to discover Scotland’s national spirit from the comfort of the hotel’s newly-opened signature whisky bar, SCOTCH. The bar’s dedicated Whisky Ambassadors have carefully curated four ‘Whisky Journeys’ around the themes of region, finish, age and rarity.  Each journey includes four or five drams and has been designed to appeal to all those with an appreciation of Scotland’s most famous spirit from whisky novices through to experienced whisky connoisseurs.

Groups will be guided through their Whisky Journey by one of SCOTCH’s knowledgeable Whisky Ambassadors who will provide a wealth of information on the taste and heritage of each dram.  A selection of delicious bar bites such as smoked almonds, wild boar salami, dark Swiss chocolate and Scottish blue cheese will be served during the tasting, chosen to bring out the flavours in the whisky. A variety of Uisge Source waters will also be served. The paired waters, sourced from each main whisky region complement the whisky and offer guests the opportunity to ‘open up’ their dram and fully appreciate the complex aromas and flavours of the whisky.

The journeys are designed to be a voyage of discovery, enjoyed in the comfort of the stylish Olga-Polizzi designed bar, featuring a display of over 400 bottles of Scottish whisky.

SCOTCH’s whisky journeys are available for groups of between 15 to 25 delegates and need to be booked in advance.  Whisky Journey’s range from £35 per person to £105 per person including exclusive use of the bar and a dedicated Whisky Ambassador.  SCOTCH is also available for private hire, providing an interesting backdrop for private events and parties.

SCOTCH is open Monday to Sunday from 12pm to 1am.
