While Scotch whisky has to be made and matured in Scotland, one key part of the production process invariably comes from a bit further afield – casks. Most whisky sits in former bourbon casks for much of its life, but for many it’s the world of sherry cask matured whisky that is most interesting.

In this session we will be examining the wonderful world of sherry, matching up three whiskies with the types of sherry that once inhabited the casks used to mature them. We will be joined by Whisky Squad regular, booze blogger, paragon of virtue and writer of this paragraph, Billy Abbott. He’ll be revealing his not-so-secret love of sherry and trying to convince the room that it’s more than just a drink for your gran.

This event is fully booked.
