Put your best bud back on his feet after the first night of his stag party, with a generous whisky tasting challenge!
Prime territory for mocking a hungover groom, and a great way to stoke the fires before you descend on Bigg Market or Ouseburn for the second time, a whisky tasting session is the ultimate way to get a few cheeky ones on the menu. Organised and entertaining, it starts with showcase cocktails and ends with a blind shoot out.
Every chap in the group gets to avail himself of six free shots. Listen to the lecture that accompanies the pour, and see if you can match the facts to the drink.
Rock up to a popular bar in central Newcastle and get on it. The atmosphere is spot on, the staff are friendly and well used to serving a lively stag party, and there are plenty of easy on the eye ladies. Can you impress them by identifying whiskies without seeing the labels?
Winners get to swank around showing off their whisky knowledge: losers are rewarded with hilariously naff prizes. And at the end of it all, you're nicely toasted in the middle of Newcastle. We'd recommend offsetting the effects of your whisky tasting session with a couple of well-placed snacks, or you won't make it past 8 in the evening!
