Well it was a mad rush; leaving work at 16:00, driving the 28 miles back to Birmingham, quick change, pick whisky up, train to town, Mac Donalds perfect pre-taste meal?) and at the Whisky Shop by 18:00 just in time for our first event! We’d organised this tasting with Craig, manager of Birmingham’s Whisky Shop, around the concept of trying whisky blind. Each guest would bring a bottle of whisky, hide the label and then allow each person to try while we pontificated as to what delights we were tasting! So what did we have? Unfortunately Mike was otherwise occupied so it was left to me (Jon) to hold the fort for LivingRoom Whisky.
We’ve got a great free event lined up for you to celebrate World Whisky Day. We’ve teamed up with The Whisky Shop in Birmingham and are hosting a ‘Blind Tasting‘. Simply bring a bottle of whisky from your collection to share with the other guests and we’ll wrap them up to hide the labels and so on. You’ll then have the opportunity to talk others through your offering, as well as dramming with all of the other whiskies available. It’s a great chance to try some new and unusual whisky without having the preconceptions of what you like and what you don’t! The identity of all whiskies will then be revealed!
The tasting will start at 18:00 on Tuesday 27th March at the Whisky Shop in Birmingham; places are free but extremely limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis. To secure your place simply DM us on Twitter @LRWhisky and we will respond to let you know if you have been successful! So come along, support World Whisky Day, get to know the authors of this blog (!) and drink some cracking whisky! We can’t wait to see you!
