Whisky 101 has been a staple of the festival for 8 of the last 9 years! This event always sells out year after year. This event is one of the fastest to fill up. Discover the world of whisky with Hopscotch Festival’s own Whisky Educator (Certified by World Masterclass of Whisky, Whisky Ambassador (Glasgow), Certified Spirits Specialist and WSET Educator) Lynn Coulthard. To say Lynn knows whisky is an understatement. This event focuses on understanding the differences between the main types of whisky (Rye, Bourbon, Irish, Scotch Single Malt, Scotch Blend and other types…) as well as some ideas on how best to appreciate and serve them. The evening will include the tasting of a wide variety of types of whiskies as well as the learning of how tasting can be related to such things as raw materials & production methods. Great for beginners, a novice or an experienced aficionado wanting to brush up on their knowledge!
