An online whisky tasting from home!

Whisky-Tasting-Set

Discover 5 whiskies we have carefully selected from craft producers across Scotland, Ireland and Japan. Come and join us on a storytelling experience where exploration, education and fun are the main ingredients on the table.

In Once Upon a Whisky, we are passionate about the legendary drink. Our main goal is to educate our customers about all things whisky through wonderful experiences that we hope, can last in your memories for years.

During each tasting, we display a set of beautifully designed infographics and maps that will help you understand and contextualise each whisky’s flavour profile, tastings notes, distillery’s location and the most important factors during the production process that influence the flavour of whisky in one way or the other.

Come and join us on a virtual whisky tasting from the comfort of your own home. Let’s go on a whisky journey across distilleries, regions and flavours without having to move off that cosy sofa.

Highlights of the virtual whisky tasting

During May (The World whisky Day/Month), we are going to host two virtual whisky tastings with a set of 5 miniature bottles delivered by us directly to your door.

Our mission as a whisky tour company is to deliver 5-stars whisky experiences. Our commitment to the whisky industry is to support craft distilleries and local bars by offering our customers unique whisky with stories to tell. Our job is to continue passing on our greatest passion in creative and innovative ways.

So, if for any reason you can’t visit us in Glasgow or Edinburgh and join us physically in any of our whisky tours. Let us bring the whisky joy to you through a whisky tasting set that highlights the very best the whisky industry has to offer.

The whisky tasting set and virtual tasting experience include the following:

  • A beautiful set of 5 x 25ml miniatures of great whisky
  • A combination of wonderful drams from Scotland, Japan and Ireland (See below for details)
  • Loads of quirky facts and curious stories about the legendary drink
  • Information about distilleries, regions and brands
  • 60 minutes of whisky culture and education guaranteed
  • In case you miss the live stream, the tasting experience will be available anytime/anywhere by scanning the QR code printed in the box.

About the whiskies (May: World Whisky Day/Month)

Whisky-Tasting-Set

Each year, the whisky community celebrates The World Whisky Day on the third Saturday of May. This year (2022) it will be celebrated on Saturday the 21st and we want to take this opportunity to introduce you to our most recent development.

A very innovative tasting set made with passion and love. We have selected a combination of whiskies that not only tell a story on their own but also, will give you an overview of the whisky industry across three different countries:

  • Scotland
  • Japan
  • Ireland

Let’s find out the stories behind these drams!

May’s Tasting Set: World Whisky Day Edition

  • Nikka Days (Japanese) – A blend of malt and grain whisky features spirits distilled in Coffey stills at Miyagikyo and Yoichi. A lovely easy-drinking dram that goes well neat or in a mizuwari, the traditional Japanese highball consisting of whisky and sparkling water on ice.
  • Teeling – Small Batch (Ireland) – The Small Batch Irish whiskey is made with a blend of malt and grain whiskeys, initially aged in ex-Bourbon barrels. It’s then finished in Central American Rum casks to give it a tropical, sweet note.
  • Syndicate 58/6 – Blended Scotch Whisky In 1958, a rare blend of Scotch malt and grain whiskies was found in 10 casks in a warehouse in Port of Leith. Containing 18 different single malts and 4 grains – maturation went through by using the Solera system, the last year spent time in Oloroso Sherry cask as a finish. A true delicacy!
  • Ledaig, Rioja Cask Finish – Single Malt Scotch Whisky: Ledaig Rioja Cask brings in all the oily, maritime qualities of a flagship Ledaig and blends them with the sweet and spicy notes brought by the Rioja wine finish. Matured in bourbon casks and finished in Spanish Rioja wine casks, the whisky well balances the flavours of seaweed, grapes and berries, and a peppery smokiness.
  • Big Peat, Islay – Blended Malt Scotch Whisky: A blended malt (a whisky made by mixing different single malts, but no grain whisky). Big Peat contains single malts from distilleries which are quite different in flavour profile and character: Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen. As its name suggests this dram is very big on peat.
