Homecoming Whisky Month

Homecoming Whisky Month is taking place in May and to celebrate we are organising four fun and interactive whisky dinnerrs.

The first event takes place on Friday 9th May with Scotch Broth events taking guests on a sensory journey through the world of whisky.

Called the Malts and Molecules Whisky Dinner, the evening promises to be a fun look at the science of whisky tasting.

As well as sensory experiments, the event will feature a four course dinner with each dish matched to selected whiskies on a molecular level.

On Friday 16th May and World Whisky Day on Saturday 17th of May, comic Alan Anderson will be entertaining guests at Arisaig with a live version of his acclaimed, online, Whisky Comedian chat show.

Featuring a tongue-in-cheek but informative interview with top whisky industry professionals, Alan aims to get to the heart of Scotland’s greatest export over a delicious three course dinner.

Alan’s irreverent but loving approach to whisky has had audiences crying with laughter from Adelaide to Islay. Al Murray, The Pub Landlord, Annie Mac, Madness and the Top Gear team are among the fans that have enjoyed his whisky tasting comedy.

On Friday 30th May, Simply Whisky will be looking at the stories behind Scotch; its provenance and the craftsmanship needed to create this fascinating drink.

With the aid of several drams, Simon Roser and Franchi Ferla will explain the mysteries of tasting whisky; test guests on their knowledge of the whisky regions and toast the amber liquid’s unique heritage in a manner that only they can.

Tickets cost £55.00 per person for each of these events.
