Ready for a dram good night in central London?
Autumn: the season of golden leaves, chilly nights and cosy jumpers. And what better way to complement the seasonal change than with a deliciously warming whisky tasting session? The Blend by Chivas is returning to London once again, bringing with it yet more whisky mastery and the chance to concoct your own bottle of spirit.
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that The Blend came to London last year, too. So, if you missed out on attending before, then now’s your chance to try your hand at blending and learning everything there is to know about whisky. Each one-hour session will include a whisky tasting masterclass, a delicious Chivas Highball cocktail and the chance to make your own bespoke 200ml Chivas whisky to take home.
Sip on a Chivas Highball while discovering how the different flavour notes work together. Then, nose and taste five different whiskies with a wide range of aromas, textures and flavours. Once you’ve stored that knowledge away for your future whisky-based concoctions, try your hand at blending whisky to your own taste.
This guided tasting session is your best way to experience a lesson on the craftsmanship of master blending. Get technical as you delve into blending mastery while learning about (and tasting) a range of single grain and malt whiskies. It promises all the skills necessary so you’re able to show off to your friends next time you’re having a drink. And with more than 20,000 whisky blending experiences last year, it’s fair to say you’re in safe hands with the Chivas team.
But it’s not only a learning activity: head to the bar afterwards, where you’ll find a range of delicious Chivas drinks. It’s a, ahem, neat opportunity to learn more about the spirit in the hands of some of the industry’s finest.
There’ll be four London venues playing host to The Blend this month – Genuine Liqourette, Smith & Wollensky, Jones Family Kitchen and Mac & Wild.
Here at Secret London, we stick to what we know and focus on events in the capital. But if you’ve got family or friends based elsewhere in the UK who would like to come along, worry not: The Blend is also heading to other cities across the country next year.
Tickets for The Blend in London can be bought here. The Blend by Chivas runs in London from Tuesday 15 October on selected dates only. 18+ only. Please drink responsibly.
