Old Malt Cask Master Class Tasting - Thurs 3rd May     

Thursday 3rd May 6pm - 9pm

Join Reto Stockli for a Whisky Master Class with the team from the Whisky Castle at the Richmond Hall, Tomintoul.


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.

Reto Stockli will guide you through a specially selected range of outstanding malts from the Hunter Laing portfolio. Reto is a very well-established whisky representative within Hunter Laing and 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. Reto 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 Reto during the Q&A session.
