May: Benriach Layers of Flavour Discover the Possibilities of Smoke
Join Rory Glasgow for an exploration into the possibilities of smoke as we embark on a journey that will take us through the unique style that defines the Benriach Distillery.
Through the use of smoke and a diverse selection of casks from around the world, Benriach is a Single Malt Distillery that can bring out a wider range of flavours in its whiskies – crafting a line of single malts that are distinctly Speyside, yet uniquely Benriach. With such complexity in each expression, our whiskies are versatile enough to appeal to a variety of palates – with everyone finding something different to enjoy with each taste. From smoky to sweet, the layers of flavour in our whisky work together to provide a truly unique tasting experience.
By introducing carefully sourced peat into our distilling process, we’re able to add varying levels of smokiness that help enhance and complement the layers of complex flavour in our whisky – debunking the myths about peat and opening your nose and palate to a whole new world of flavour possibilities.

July: Glenglassaugh A Whisky Shaped by Land & Sea
Join Rory Glasgow for a tasting event that combines traditional Scottish confectionery with the coastal charm of the Glenglassaugh distillery. This rare Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky still flies under many radars but for what it lacks in notoriety, it sure makes up for in its bold and unusual flavors shaped by its proximity to the North Sea. Its precarious history has had many in the industry proclaim Glenglassaugh to be the ‘luckiest distillery in Scotland’ purely by the fact it remains here today, against all the odds. Its constant closures a testament to its unusual character and unwillingness to compromise on flavor to fit within a blend.
- Glenglassaugh Revival paired with Sea Salted Caramels
- Glenglassaugh Evolution paired with Scottish Tablet
- Glenglassaugh Torfa paired with Mint Infused Shortbread
