Activity Overview
Whiskey, by far the most famous liquor, is drunk all over the world. Often whiskey is identified with Scotland. Not entirely unjustified, since this is the most drunk whiskey and also in the supermarkets mainly Scotch whiskey can be found. A whiskey tasting can continue from 25 euros per person.

The world of whiskeys, however, goes far beyond Scotland alone. Countries like the US, Ireland, Canada and Japan also have a famous reputation when it comes to whiskey. In order to contain this multitude of whiskey types, whiskey tasting is an ideal activity.

The whiskey tasting will start off with a historical introduction of the spirit. Next, we discuss various distillation and preparation techniques used to produce whiskey and look at its influence on taste. Terms such as pot still, single malt, Speyside or Islay will no longer be a secret to you after this whiskey tasting. Afterwards, the whiskey tasting can really begin and the tasting starts.

The assortment of whiskey provided for this tasting can be tailor-made. For groups that have little or no knowledge of whiskey, we offer as an introductory package with an assortment of whiskeys from all over the world ranging from Scottish and Irish blended or single malt whisk(e)y's to American Rye's and Japanese whiskeys.

If the group already has knowledge of whiskey, you can decide for yourself what you want to include during the tasting. For example, you can opt to taste single malts from the Scottish Highlands. More specifically, only whiskeys from the Speyside region of at least 18 years old, a full range of Japanese whiskeys or a range of whiskeys from lesser-known regions such as India, South Africa or even Belgium. Combinations are also possible. In other words, the package is fully customizable to your wishes.

After the whiskey tasting, you have the opportunity to purchase the tasted bottles. There is also a menu book in which all these bottles are mentioned again with their main data and tasting notes.

Cheers!

Rum is best known as the basis for various world-famous cocktails. Just think of the Daiquiri, Mojito, Mai Tai or Cuba Libre. Rum is less known as a spirit to taste on its own compared ... morewith whiskey or cognac. However, there are a lot of quality, matured rums that are equally good and usually better drunk alone than to be used in a cocktail. 

At the start of the rum tasting, we give a historical introduction about rum. Afterwards, the main rum-producing regions and the geographical diversity of rum will be discussed. Next, we discuss various distillation and preparation techniques that are used to produce rum and we look at the influence of this on taste. Terms such as rhum agricole, molasses, demerara or solera know no more secrets for you after the rum tasting. Afterwards, the rum tasting can really start and we start testing!

As with a whiskey tasting, our assortment can also be tailored to your rum tastings. For groups that have little or no knowledge of rum, we offer as a starter range of basic types of rum, so that you get a good overview of the extensive world of rums and the tasting will end with a classic rum cocktail. If you are already familiar with rum, the range will be adjusted and more exclusive rums will be discussed.

After the rum tasting, you have the opportunity to purchase the tasted rums. 

Cheers!
