A dram good gift for someone special!
It’s officially the yuletide hype season, and with the onset of some rather dark and chilly nights, comes that familiar annual phenomenon – gift-giving anxiety! Well, fear not, we’ve got a pretty good idea for a gift that’s at once an unforgettable experience, a chance for your giftee to have some fun, and, well, just pretty damn fancy!
The Blend by Chivas has been such a hit all over the UK, it’s returning once again to London and bringing with it yet more whisky mastery and the chance for guests to concoct their very own bottle of the spirit.
This is not an experience to miss, and now’s your chance to give more than just a bottle of the good stuff. At The Blend your lucky recipient will get to learn 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 a bespoke 200ml blend of Chivas whisky to take home.
Guests can 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 and flavours. Once they’ve stored that knowledge away for future whisky-based concoctions, they can try their hand at blending whisky to suit their own taste.
This guided tasting session is the best way to experience a lesson on the craftsmanship of the master blender. Guests will get technical as they delve into blending mastery while learning about (and tasting) a range of single grain and malt whiskies. It promises all the skills necessary so they’re able to show off their newfound expertise next time you catch up. And with more than 20,000 whisky blending experiences last year, it’s fair to say they’ll be in safe hands with the Chivas team.
But it’s not only a learning activity: guests can head to the bar afterwards, where there’ll be 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.
It’s taking place across five London venues with dates available now and into the new year!
