Whisky Socials at The Athenaeum
The Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments acclaimed Whisky Socials take place on the last friday of every month. It’s a great chance to sample drams from different malt whisky collections and the perfect opportunity to get in-the-know on distilling and blending processes used to create award-winning spirits.
A delightful feature of Whisky Socials at The Athenaeum is an exclusively prepared 5-course menu. Each course is designed by the Head Chef at the double rosette awarded restaurant with the help of a Whisky Sommelier. Guests will be able to sample a different whisky to accompany each course with detailed information on each of the expressions to guide budding connoisseurs.
August’s Whisky Social will be co-hosted by Alan Wardrop of Glengoyne Highland Single Malt and Whisky Sommelier, Ivo Silva.
Why you should gift this evening to a partner or close friend…
It’s highly original, informative and the perfect chance to share a glass of something special at a sumptuous 5-star central London hotel – recommended by English Luxury.
The atmosphere is laid back and charming and the chatter open with knowledge shared. The vibe is easy-going and playful, certainly not uptight.
After guests are invited to adjourn in the hotel’s renowned Whisky Bar, home to one of the most extensive and impressive whisky collections in London – from American Bourbon to Japanese exports – everything the whisky connoisseur could want.
Just for connoisseurs?
No. Complete novices can increase their knowledge with expert help and advice from the friendly bar staff and Ivo Silva himself.
