The Whisky Connoisseur Experience
This is a behind the scenes look at how we design and produce our spirits. We will guide you through all aspects of our gin and vodkas, then move into the world of whisky. For a true understanding of the malts we are create, we will start with our new make spirit, as it condenses straight from the still at around 70%abv. Then we will taste some of our cask aged spirit, to see how the different barrels influence the maturing whisky. These include Virgin American Oak, ex-Port, ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry, and ex-Bourbon.
Includes tapas style nibbles throughout the afternoon & 70cl bottle of your favourite Bimber spirit or 5cl bottles of the full range.
£99 per person (max. 8 per session) • 2 hours 30 minutes
The Distiller’s Experience
Spend a day with us at the distillery, learning how to operate the equipment and distil single malt whisky. We usually produce a batch of ‘low-wines’ from the 1000 litre wash still (first distillation) while running the 600 litre spirit still for our new-make spirit (second distillation). If you are feeling energetic, you can help with the mashing! This is where we mix hot water with our malted barley to extract ‘worts’ – the soluble sugars that form the base of our whisky. You will experience the whole whisky making journey: from malted barley to new-make spirit, via mashing, fermenting and distilling your own new-make spirit. You will also learn about the processes of maturation, including a cask filling, aging and instrumentation.
Includes a 70cl bottle of your favourite Bimber spirit or 5cl bottles of the full range.
