Whisky Tasting Classes (Arriving October 2021)

The Whiskey Creation session helps you to understand the origins of one of the world’s most famous spirits – from Highland & Islay to Japanese & Tennessee, explore it all with our whisk(e)y experts. 

You’ll be guided through a whisk(e)y tasting that encompasses a range of products from around the world before going on to blend your own whiskey with the help of our master blender. 

The experience


    Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your session begins. You will enter the studio, come up the stairs and be greeted by your instructors and a complementary Whiskey & Ginger.


    Once the group has arrived, we move into the tasting room and learn about the history of gin and the science of flavour through a series of fun experiments!


    We then go into a brief history of one of our favourite whisky cocktails, whilst enjoying a delicious whisky libation.


    Utilising the skills you have learned in the tasting room you will move to your very own work station where you will be shown how to blend your own whiskey.


    Using the flavoured distillates made by our whiskey experts you will pick your favourites and use them to blend your own gin before naming it.


    Once you have finished, you become a Liquor Studio Alumni with your own bespoke whiskey. We keep your blend on record so you can re-order anytime by emailing us.

Bought for a present for my girlfriend. We had a one to one session with a member of staff (Kirsty) and it was fantastic. We spent well over the hour they recommended discussing the gins and their history. A great experience!

My friend and I had the loveliest day at the Liquor Studio for the gin experience. John/Jon (not sure which) was so passionate about the history and science of gin. He had all of us laughing and made everything fun and interesting. We learned so much about gin and had so much fun tasting and making our own.
Great fun

Bought this class for my wife's birthday and we both had a great time. Learning and drinking in equal measures what is not to love! The personalised bottle to take home is also a nice touch and memento of the day - highly recommended as a gift experience or group activity

I took my mother as a Christmas present to liquor studio to make our own gin. The decor is wonderful, lots of soft woods and a huge array of spirits and things to mix them with. The hosts were incredibly engaging and very friendly. With our lack of knowledge in all things gin, they made us feel at ease. It was very informative, never boring. We also got to taste plenty of gins along the way!
