Scotch: Welcome to the Single Malt Era

We are in the midst of a global whisk(e)y renaissance. In 2017 scotch set record sales in terms of both value and volume, driven by a massive uptick in single malt scotch consumption. In this seminar, Nick Taylor will explain the history and trends that led to this upswing in single malt popularity. Furthermore, he’ll elucidate how the trends affect the way whisky is made, tastes and what is available to the most rabid scotch hounds among us. During this seminar you will taste whiskies from Balblair and anCnoc, budding distilleries that exemplify the emergence of new styles and techniques in single malt production.

The ultimate goal of this seminar is to leave you with a keener understanding of the evolution of whisky so you can fully enjoy and explore single malt and the plethora of new whiskies hitting the market. This is a seminar for people who love the entire experience of whisky.
