The unique offering, which is available to groups of ten or more, provides the perfect environment in which to build camaraderie, whilst also learning a new and ancient craft.
The art of blending whisky is an extremely complex practice and this new offering will unlock the often mysterious world to connoisseurs and novices alike. The attraction’s highly trained team will impart the skills required to create a blend, before allowing amateur blenders the chance to create their very own Scotch Whisky.
The participants can work on their own to create a personal blend while also engaging in a new and unique shared experience with colleagues. Everyone will receive a small bottle of their blend to take home, as well as a certificate of blending.
Susan Morrison, director and general manager of The Scotch Whisky Experience said: “If distilling Whisky is a complex science, then blending is the true art of our industry. Over the years, many of our visitors have quizzed us on the processes involved in creating a blend, so we are delighted to be able to offer our visitors this new experience.
“Everyone has different tastes when it comes to Whisky and we look forward to helping our visitors create their own perfect dram over the coming months.”
Home to the World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky, the iconic 19th century building comprises a choice of five meeting, event and private dining spaces. From the grand Castlehill Room with its stained glass windows and Swarovski chandeliers, which caters for up to 100, to the impressive marble vault of the Collection, which offers an exclusive dining space for 10; there is something for every occasion.
The new blending package costs £65 per person and includes a tour of the attraction, a viewing of the World’s Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky and a tasting of four regional Single Malt Whiskies, alongside the blending session.
