Once Upon a Whisky Awards
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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Business Roundtables

Fantastic experience - everything from the packaging of the whiskies to the wonderful and knowledgeable host, Federica. It was such a pleasure to work with Camilo in the lead up to the tasting event. The event itself was so well organised - everyone received the whiskies in time. Well worth the money! Really looking forward to working with Once Upon a Whisky in the future!

Out of your Comfort Zone

Excellent home-based whisky tasting session. Must admit that I was apprehensive initially when I saw the whiskies we were tasting. I guess these tasting sessions are all about stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new products. Although the whiskies were not within my preferred taste/zone I thoroughly enjoyed the session. Camilo, the host, was very pleasant and knowledgeable and the session just whizzed by. Would definitely recommend it to beginners and whisky lovers. Thanks, Once Upon a Whisky.

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!

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

Camilo helped me host a virtual Japanese Whisky tasting last night with a new client. This was a perfect way to break the ice keep the conversation going and while being educated at the same time. Very knowledgeable and professional. Camilo has the power to make lockdown not feel so much like lockdown. Thanks again we will be booking again.

Re-Connect with your Colleagues

Thanks Once Upon a Whisky! Great fun. Re-connected with colleagues not seen for a while via the tasting. Nice balance of whisky information and just virtually enjoying each other's company. Sláinte!
