Surprise your loved ones this season with the gift of whisky blending!
Christmas is coming and with it, the stress of hunting down the perfect gift for those around you. If a bottle of whisky seems too impersonal a gift, The Blend by Chivas is the ultimate present for the Scotch-loving pal in your life.
The Blend combines a whisky-tasting masterclass, the chance to blend your own whisky and the opportunity to gain plenty of impressive knowledge along the way. Prepare for a dram good night that’s taking place at Manchester’s very own whisky school – The Loft. Each one-hour session will include the chance to blend your own whisky to take home.
Nose and taste five different single malt and grain whiskies with a wide range of aromas and flavours, then get technical as you delve into blending mastery. Once you’ve stored that knowledge away for your future whisky-based concoctions, try your hand at blending a whisky to your own taste.
This guided tasting session is the best way to experience a lesson in the craftsmanship of the Master Whisky Blender. You’ll almost definitely be able to show off to your friends next time you’re having a drink!
But it’s not only a learning activity: head to the bar afterwards, where you’ll find a range of delicious Chivas drinks. And when you leave, you’ll take your very own 200ml bottle of personally-blended whisky with you. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the spirit in the hands of some of the industry’s finest.
