Once Upon a Whisky Awards
Corporate Event

Used Once Upon a Whisky for a corporate customer event. Thrilled with the experience!! All whisky arrived ahead of time, Camilo was flexible with the agenda to incorporate the corporate chat in between the tasting sessions and showed a huge passion for whisky! The presentation was so insightful. Left 40 customers very happy and already had asks for further sessions to be put on! Thank you!

Gift for Dad

I very much enjoyed the Once Upon a Whisky tasting experience. I purchased this as a gift for my dad's birthday and it was a great activity for us to do together. The host was friendly, knowledgeable and clearly a whisky enthusiast. Overall, the session was interesting and well delivered. I would 100% recommend it to others and will keep an eye out for future events!

Independent Bottlers Tour

We went for the Independent Bottlers private West End Tour and it was absolutely worth it! If you want to try some amazing whiskies in pubs that are full of history not to mention visit an exclusive whisky room then this tour is for you. We have been on many tours at different distilleries and also at different bars but the walking tour gives you a chance to try some unique whiskies while seeing some of the sights of Glasgow. Camilo was a great guide and source of knowledge who went way beyond the usual 'this is how they make whisky' talk and we not only learned a lot but we were very entertained all evening. I definitely recommend it!

Luxury Whisky Experience

Luxury tour was excellent and choice of establishments were varied so we got a real “ taste” of not only whiskey but also the Scottish culture. Cam was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We learned many of the nuances of distilling whiskey and how to identify one’s preferences. His conclusion of facts was fascinating and humorous. Highly recommend this tour. Great way to spend a few hours.

Stag Do

Once Upon a Whisky was a great fun and highly informative experience. Cam took us to three cool and unique venues in Glasgows’ west end. We were a big group of 30 and Cam took it in his stride, sharing his knowledge on the four very different whisk(e)ys we sampled, as well as the history of the industry in Scotland and abroad. It was an afternoon well spent and I highly recommend!

Whisky & Chocolate Tour

Camilo was a fantastic guide and our group of 14 loved learning about Scottish whisky, tasting delicious chocolate and sampling different bars and restaurants along the way. Camilo was great to work with in advance, and he responded quickly and helpfully to all of my requests, to curate the perfect tour for our group. He was also great at working with our group's energy, stepping in to lead our tasting experience and then stepping back to let the group connect with each other. Highly recommend for a personalised insight into this great Scottish tradition!

Birthday Celebrations

We organised a private tasting session to celebrate the 50th Birthday with friends. Camilo was brilliant and guided us perfectly through our samples. There was plenty of discussion around our favourites and didn’t feel rushed at all. Highly recommended.

Visitors & Tourists

Really well organised. Lots of information, lovely, good pace of delivery, I have visited a lot of distilleries but learned so much more here. Thank you

Corporate Client

Once Upon a Whisky did a superb online tasting for 150 of my colleagues last week. Informative, entertaining, lots of excellent graphics, many new whisky tips and nicely personalised for us. Would strongly recommend it!


We had a great time, thank you, Camilo! Highly recommend the virtual tasting experience (makes a great gift or 'date night'!) and will definitely do it again!

Non-Whisky Drinker

Had an online whisky tasting from here. Fascinating journey around the types and history of whisky. As a non-whisky drinker, found an amazing insight into the different flavours and why they taste different. Camilo was really friendly and interesting. Would love to try some more when I can visit Scotland.

Corporate Client

Highly recommend Once Upon a Whisky! Camilo is a pleasure to work with, he is an absolute expert in whisky and delivers flawless events!
