Raise a dram to International Whisky Day with Glengoyne's virtual tasting.

The Glengoyne distillery is now closed to the public but still plans to celebrate International Whisky Day with an online tasting.

As the coronavirus crisis and UK lockdown continues, many businesses have gone online and are offering a range of options for customers, from home delivery to virtual meet ups.

Glengoyne is the latest to offer an online event, which will take place on their Facebook page on Friday 27 March in celebration of International Whisky Day.

Posting on their Facebook, they said: “We are still absolutely committed to keeping you entertained and updated on all things Glengoyne via our newsletters, website and social media.

“Starting as we mean to go on, we’re delighted to invite you to join us for a Facebook live tasting on Friday 27th March from 8pm GMT.

“Be sure to join us with a dram in hand on International Whisky Day as Gordon Dundas, Glengoyne International Brand Ambassador hosts a Facebook Live Tasting.

“Whisky Experiential Ambassador, Gordon Dallas will also join Gordon, and both will be thrilled to answer all your questions.”

The team are asking for questions to be sent in advance via their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages, or they can be asked live on the night.

Anyone joining the tasting will be in with a chance of winning a bottle of Teapot Dram, Batch 007, with the winner being notified on 30 March.
