An opportunity to savour a magical collection of Royal Salute whiskies in the company of His Grace the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and Grand Master of the Keepers of the Quaich.
Five deliciously contrasting marques from this iconic range have been personally selected so as to showcase the art of blending at its magnificent best. This includes two unique drams from the Royal Salute Polo Collection with the Snow Polo Edition providing a mouth-watering insight into the delicious world of aged grains. We’ll then be sharing the new Royal Salute 21yo Malts Blend and indulge in a rare opportunity to taste a collector’s dream with the bespoke 30yo cask-strength Royal Salute Flask Edition. With the legendary Royal Salute 38yo Stone of Destiny as a Grand Finale for ‘The Royal Toast’, this is an incredible opportunity to join His Grace and Peter, one of the industry’s most celebrated double acts with many stories to tell across twenty years of flying the Royal Salute flag together.

The Jewels in the Chivas Brothers Crown with Ian Logan
Normally available only to those that visit the Chivas Brothers Brand Homes on Speyside, this a unique opportunity to try some of the rarest and most exclusive Single Malts in the Chivas Brothers Distillery Reserve Collection.

The Distillery Reserve Collection has now been expanded to include all of the thirteen working distilleries Chivas Brothers while also including the Single Grain produced at the Strathclyde Grain Distillery in Glasgow. Several of the more hard to find expressions are included in the whiskies that will be tasted in the class. Joining us to take you through the whiskies will be Ian Logan, International Brand Ambassador at Chivas Brothers and someone who has seen the range grow from a handful of bottlings to the comprehensive range that is available today.
