Whisky Master Class - Hugh Muir, Old Malt Cask

During this historically well attended evening, you have the opportunity to enjoy a professionally tutored whisky tasting experience with one of the most renowned suppliers of exquisite malt whisky to the Whisky Castle in Tomintoul.

Hugh Muir will guide you through a specially selected range of outstanding malts from the Hunter Laing portfolio. Hugh is a very well-established whisky representative with the company and as the Sales Director for Hunter Laing, he possesses an unrivalled, in-depth knowledge of single malts and their history and heritage.

The evening’s proceedings will offer you a rare insight into the differing and vast range of whiskies that Hunter Laing bottle and how they source the outstanding whiskies they supply. Hugh will discuss the reasoning behind why more whisky enthusiasts are turning to specialist bottlings that are non-chill filtered with natural colour. You can ask questions and get expert feedback from a man with a huge reputation in the industry.
