During the summer of 2017 we took guests on a cocktail journey to a woodland campfire hideaway within the unique setting of a former biscuit factory. During the interactive masterclass we showed guests the ins and outs of creating great whisky cocktails whilst they rolled up their sleeves to put what they learned into practice and enjoy the fruits of their libation labour. With an emphasis on the provenance of Scottish spirits and foraged ingredients, this was a place to stimulate both the palate and mind.
The Talisker distillery is battered by the elements on the windswept coast of the Isle of Skye and is one of the most remote distilleries in Scotland. Sea-salty, smoky and distinctive, this liquid acted as the centrepiece of the masterclass.
