Whisky Tastings are a great way to try themed flights of whisky, whether a ‘vertical’ range of single malts from the same distillery or a selection of brilliant drams from independent bottlers. Although Whisky-Online have been organising great whisky tasting events in our home town of Blackpool since 2008, in 2018 we kicked it up a notch when we began a full schedule of tastings at Blackpool’s Imperial Hotel. 

Since then we have hosted some superb whisky tastings, with high calibre guest hosts from across the spectrum of the whisky world including Ronnie Cox from Berry Bros. & Rudd and Fred Laing from Douglas Laing. Our tastings usually include between six and nine whiskies and past events have included Burns Night tastings with Haggis, Neeps and Tatties accompanying the whisky. The events often conclude with a charity raffle of special whisky-related goodies in aid of local causes such as Blackpool’s Trinity Hospice.  

Covid-19 and Online Whisky Tastings

In 2020, the restrictions we all face due to Covid-19 necessitated a suspension of our whisky tastings, but we are determined to come back better than ever as soon as it’s safe to resume events.  In the meanwhile we've started doing great online whisky tastings, including virtual sessions with exciting new distilleries Ardnamurchan and Isle of Raasay and a memorable Burns Night whisky tasting with industry legend Doug McIvor of Berry Bros. & Rudd.

VIP Ticket Scheme

The enormous popularity of our online whisky tastings has led to a huge demand for these events, far exceeding the tickets we have available. Therefore, in order to give our regular attendees first refusal, our virtual whisky tastings will now be offered under our VIP Tasting Scheme. Customers who have attended a tasting with us in the past, whether this was at a physical whisky tasting event or online, will have exclusive access to tickets for the first 24 hours. After this time, tickets will be published on our website for general sale.

If you are interested in our whisky tastings, we highly recommend keeping an eye on our New Arrivals page or signing up to our Newsletter at the bottom of this page.  See below for details on our previous whisky tasting events.
