Let’s face it, nowadays, many of us have more time on our hands than we ever expected. If you are looking for fact-filled, palate-pleasing ways to make the most of it, why not try your hand at a virtual spirit tasting session?
For those not familiar with what a virtual spirit tasting session is, it’s where you log-in online with experts on that particular spirit and join them in a co-ordinated tasting session.
These tasting sessions frequently teach you about the flavour, the individual nuances of the drink and its history along with a considerable amount of extra information you would never have envisaged. Sometimes, by the time the virtual spirit tasting has ended, you’re armed with enough knowledge to host your own!
Here are three forthcoming virtual spirit tastings for you to consider:

- Thursday 30th April – 7 pm – Master of Malt
