An Aberdeen cocktail bar is set to launch a whisky club and society.
The Tippling House on Belmont Street will host its first event for the club on Wednesday April 17.
Club events will take place every third Wednesday of the month and are aimed at both connoisseurs and those with a budding interest in whisky.
The Tippling House co-founder Adrian Gomes said: “Although we can never lay claim to the largest whisky list in the city, we’ve always championed the independent bottlings, family brands and local distilleries.
“Working in partnership with 350-year-old independent wine and spirit merchant Berry Bros & Rudd, plus contemporary disruptive brand The Boutique-y Whisky Company, as our rotational host residencies, means we’re never going to run out of interesting and tasty dreams to serve up to our guests.”
The Tippling House has never had a monthly club of its own prior to this, instead hosting weekly consumer tastings for small groups and the occasional whisky dinner or brand-led tasting.
The recent sold-out success of the bar’s Breakeven Bottle tastings has shown an appetite for more whisky-focused events and as a result, the venue is launching the monthly initiative.
The first event in April will be split into two parts. The first part, The Club, will see people enjoy a blind whisky tasting. The second part of the night, The Social, will allow people to drink from a monthly bespoke drinks list consisting of the same format every month including a Boilermaker (beer and whisky shot), a Highball (a Japanese-influenced long serve, i.e Scotch & Soda), a whisky flight and some more drams.
The event will take place from 6pm until 2am. The get-together will initially be open to all, with a proposed membership rewards programme launching later in the year.
