Event Description

Discover the wonderful history of Whisk(e)y and sample a carefully chosen selection of this incredibly diverse spirit at our Whisky tasting class.

All the while pairing with some delectable chocolate.

Scotch whisky is steeped in rebellions, riots, illicit stills, smuggling, and violence all to protect whisky from high taxes and poor quality whisky that threatened to outprice and outpace good quality whisky.

Whisky and chocolate are the perfect partners so whilst sipping our way through some stunning spirits we'll also individually match them to delicious chocolates.

Find out everything you need to know about Whisky at this fascinating two-hour tasting. We change the samples around at our very popular tastings so if you have attended a previous tasting with Thames Valley Wine School you can come again and experience six completely different Whiskies!

This tasting is great for Whisky lovers and anyone who wants to find out more about this diverse spirit and how it is made, as well as being just perfect as a gift idea!

Your tasting will include:  tasting samples of six carefully selected Whiskies, 6 chocolate samples, full tasting notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A throughout, led by our spirits expert.
