Private Whisky Tasting Events

I host regular Workshops and tasting events in Warwickshire. Covering a range of themes there's something for everyone from the absolute beginner through to a Malt Whisky stalwart.

Matt on Malt offers whisky tastings for private groups, held in your home an ideal way to socialise with friends, add a unique dimension to a dinner party or just simply get together a group of like-minded individuals wanting to learn more about whisky in an informal setting.

Matt on Malt offers a range of different tasting packages and I can tailor make your package should you have more people or want to cover a specific area or style.

A Private Whisky Tasting Experience

Whisky tasting in your own home: My basic tasting will include a selection of whiskies to sample. Making an ideal end to a dinner party, making an evening your guests will remember. Alternatively I can provide a choice of Whisky themes for your private tasting.

Bespoke Whisky Tasting Course

Create your own private whisky course. A series of Whisky Tastings at a venue of your choice, even in your own home. These sessions will give you a great introduction to whisky appreciation and knowledge and can be tailor made to your requirements. I will give you all the information you want about whisky, whilst tasting a range of whiskies to put the theory into practice.

Whether you are looking for private tasting for a group of friends or for corporate entertainment, I can offer a tailored tasting to suit your needs in our own premises or at a venue of your choice. Prices start at £150 for a tasting, which includes my presentation, glasses, tasting notes and other materials. I tailor the cost of the whiskies, to suit your budget.

Tutored whisky evenings

Holding your own tasting? If you have a group of 25 or more and the use of a house, hall or even a garden for the evening, then I will host the event for you. I will supply a knowledgeable speaker, the Whisky itself, professional Whisky tasting glasses and tasting sheets detailing the Whiskies we will be using. Whisky tastings are offered throughout the year, simply contact me to discuss a suitable date and I will do the rest.

I can offer a complete introductory tasting of all styles of Scottish and World Whiskies, comparing the Whiskies of Scotland and Ireland alongside American or Japanese Whiskies from blends to single malts, or if you had something extra special in mind, I could arrange a purely single malt tasting, showing examples from all of Scotland’s Whisky producing regions, or even a single area, distillery or bottler.

My tasting events typically consist of a presentation about the history of whisky and the different regions, followed by a discussion on how best to savour your whiskey. I select a range of single malt whisky either from one distillery or the major producing regions, which highlight the journey we are about to go on to sample. A “blind tasting” or other activities like quizzes or cocktail mixing can follow this. The key objective is for your guests to have an enjoyable and memorable occasion. My presentations are tailored around your specific event.

I can plan around your location and time frames. I am totally independent, this means I can offer any types of whiskies required.

Great for client events or in-house entertainment: Suitable for mixed groups of any size.

Satisfy all your Whisky thirsts with a tasting of Whiskies from Scotland or 'other' places. Learn more about the origins of the world’s most historic drink, how it is made and what makes Scotch distinctly different from Irish or Bourbon Whiskies. I’ll take you on an olfactory adventure and delve into the myriad of aromas to be found in Whisky. You’ll taste an exemplary range of Gaelic and American Whiskies, to include specially aged Single Malts as well as deluxe blends to showcase the art of the Master Distiller.
