Speed Dating at The Glenlivet - NEWBack to events listing
- 5 May
- The Glenlivet Distillery
One Distillery. Five distillers. Five drams of The Glenlivet plus a unique gift of a signed bottle of The Glenlivet.
The Glenlivet Distillery offers a unique opportunity to get to know some of Scotland’s most-loved and experienced whisky heroes in an intimate, yet fast-paced speed dating session. Master Distiller Alan Winchester will be joined by three retired managers of The Glenlivet Distillery plus the current manager for a very special tasting which it may never be possible to repeat.
Each presenter will share an exceptional dram of The Glenlivet with which he has an association and with which they hope to win your heart, and they will have just 10 minutes to put their charms to the test. With only seven people at each table, it’ll be an intimate affair with time to get know both your host and their whisky and to learn something of the tenure each of them spent at this iconic single malt distillery. Then it will be time for the experts to move to the next table and for you to discover the next delicious dram in the company of the next distiller. Ian Logan, International Brand Ambassador will host the session, introduce each of our star guests and act as timekeeper.
At the end of the tasting you will be presented with a bottle of The Glenlivet signed by all five participants in the tasting - a unique gift!
