"Scotch Whisky Regions". Doesn't sound particularly contentious, but few can actually agree on just how many there actually are. Are there 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 regions?

A 1909 UK Royal Commission on Whisky decided there were 5 whisky regions in Scotland; the Highlands, Lowlands, Islay, Campbeltown, and Speyside. Roll forwayd 100 years, and the UK's Scotch Whisky Regulations 2009 specified 3 whisky regions (Highlands, Lowlands, and Speyside), and 2 'localities' (Campbeltown and Islay).

Why the Islands are lumped in with the Highlands depside being both physically separate, and usually having a different character is something that will forever puzzle many. Some also break the Islands down further into "Inner Hebrides" and "Outer Islands". The Highlands also regularly get a similar treatment, being broken down into Northern Highlands, Southern Highlands, Eastern Highlands, and Western Highlands.

For our June flight, we will sample one whisky from each of the 5 official regions and localities, as well as the unofficial region of the Islands.

The Lineup:

Individual cheese & charcuterie plates featuring Tilba cheese, Fedra olives, and Pialigo meats; and a bottle of water, will be provided for each attendee. If you have any dietary requirements, please advise us via email.

Check In CBR QR codes will be placed at each seat. Checking in is compulsory for all attendees.

This event is only for persons aged 18 years or older.
