Find out what makes a quality single malt, sample some of the finest whisky blends in the world and get a respectable buzz on in the middle of the afternoon! What more could you want from a stag weekend activity?
Ideal for chaps who want to cram as many cheeky shots into their day as possible, a whisky tasting session combines interesting factoids and a genuine education in the art of distillery. It also means you get to neck one cocktail and six shots each before dinner. Nice!
The format is simple, the location ideal. Rocking up to a buzzing bar in the middle of Birmingham, you'll be greeted by a substantial whisky cocktail. While you relax and shoot the breeze (translation: tell as many hilarious stories about the stag getting smashed on spirits as you can remember), a whisky expert will line up two taste test sessions for you.
Before each three-shot session, your tasting leader will give you a short lecture covering the history, process and mythology of whisky. Find out why the Celts thought of the spirit as the water of life, and how to tell the difference between oak and sherry aged malts. Then down your shooters and identify the brands or styles for maximum points!
A stag weekend winner from cocktail to final shot, your whisky tasting session combines history, fun and afternoon drinking in perfect quantities. And you get a big start on the night out in Birmingham city centre too. Brilliant.
