Compass Box Rock!

Compass Box Rock!

Epic isn’t usually a word associated with whisky tastings but that’s exactly what Friday was – epic! We may have only received a fleeting glimpse of the excitement with a 30 minute tasting in Birmingham, but 8 tastings across the length of the county in 24 hours is, well, epic!  John Glaser of Compass Box and Dominic Roskrow (whisky writer) travelled from Inverness to Brighton with 6 stops inbetween in a day!  They covered almost 700 miles, brought whisky to 200 lucky individuals, had some kippers (those who read the tweets will know what I mean) and attempted to make it into the legendary Guiness Book of Records – and all this to highlight the fact that The Whisky Shop now stock Compass Box!!
