6.00pm –
MC2 – Compass Box Blending School: the Jazz Quartet approach to Small Craft Blending
In this Master Class, participants will be involved in hands-on blending of their own creations following the Compass Box philosophy: starting with an idea of “who and when”, then using a lead, or fingerprint whisky and subtly manipulating the flavor profile using one or two other modifying whiskies. The class will be led by US Brand Ambassador Robin Robinson, who will give further insights into the methods of maturation and blending philosophy of Compass Box founder and “Innovator of the Year” winner, John Glaser.
7.15pm –
Glenmorangie MC3
“Dr Bill Lumsden, Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation at The Glenmorangie Company, will lead a fascinating and informative tasting through the award winning “New World” of Glenmorangie. Starting with the Glenmorangie Original, the tasting will move on to the Extra Matured Range (Lasanta, Quinta Ruban and Nectar D’Or) and finally move on to explore the newest award winning creations from the Glenmorangie distillery; Glenmorangie Astar and Glenmorangie Signet”.
7.15pm –
MC4 – Classic Malts — SOLD OUT–
Experience and enjoy as the Master of Whisky takes you through a multisensory tasting of the Classic Malts Distillers Editions. These limited production bottlings of the Classic Malts Selection have been double matured, first in aged bourbon barrels, and then in either sherry or port casks. The tasting will take guests through the history, production process, regionality and flavor profiles of this vast selection of Single Malt Scotches.
8.30pm –
MC5 – Makers Mark
Meet Steve Yorsz, Maker’s Mark Distillery Diplomat, who will take you on a guided tour through Maker’s Mark at different ages of maturity (including new distillate… you’ll have to experience that one first hand!). Think of this as your personal Bourbon crash course (or Bourbon enjoyment course, depending on how you feel about the stuff). Also during this presentation, Steve will share with you the history of Maker’s Mark, the difference between Whisky and Bourbon, and why Maker’s Mark stands apart from other bourbons. In addition, get a sneak peak at their first ever, new expression…Maker’s 46.
