Waitrose launches home whisky tasting

Leading on from the success of its Gin O’ Clock experience, Waitrose has introduced a home whisky tasting experience called ‘Discover Whisky’.

A far cry from the dated whisky and chaser, customers will discover new and exciting whiskies from around the world and how to incorporate them into simple yet impressive cocktails.

This guided two-hour masterclass involves a Waitrose whisky specialist bringing a selection of whiskies and pairings straight to your door.

The tasting showcases five different whiskies – Makers Mark, The Chita, Highland Park 12, Jim Beam Double Oak and Laphroaig.

Guests will be shown how to make three simple cocktails, pairing the spirits with sodas, and taste the distinctive pairing of double oak whisky with dark salted caramel chocolate and Laphroaig with a selection of cheeses.

Each guest will also receive one complimentary highball glass and one rock glass, so they can continue to explore the world of whiskies.

The service is priced at £400 for a party of six to ten people. Visit waitrosewinetasting.com. Visit your local branch of Waitrose at Oakgrove, Milton Keynes Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 7am-10pm, Sunday 11am-5pm
