Author, whisky writer, and spirits competition judge Felipe Schrieberg will start hosting new online whisky tastings, with the option to add paired cheeses.

Taking place four times a week, nationwide delivery is available on the whisky and cheese packs.

Starting from 15 April, these whisky tastings will take place Thursday-Sunday and will feature six drams as well as three cheeses which are available as an optional add-on.

During the tastings Felipe will lead guests though a selection of whiskies that will be delivered by The Dram Team, while the cheeses have been specially selected by Bristol cheesemonger Two Belly to pair with the whiskies.

The new tasting pack includes:-       

  • Compass Box Spice Tree
  • Glenturret 12 Year Old
  •  Jura Seven Wood
  • Lakes Distillery The ONE Sherry Limited Edition
  • Glen Scotia Victoriana
  • Royal Brackla 18 Year Old Palo Cortado Finish

Schrieberg, who has now hosted over 200 online tastings for over 3000 guests over the last year, is excited to showcase the new offering.

He said: “The whiskies are excellent, and this particular pack features really lovely full bodied whiskies that will be a perfect pairing with the cheese selection we have available.

"We’re also pleased we can offer the whiskies at a cheaper rate by the dram than what you’d pay at any bar, making great liquid accessible to anyone who’s interested in whisky.”

The tastings are hosted on Zoom, with tickets and vouchers available to purchase on event ticketing platform Design My Night.

£1 from each ticket or voucher purchased on Designmynight.com will also be donated to the Trussell Trust, a UK food bank network providing food for the country’s most vulnerable citizens.

Tasting participants will also be able to sign up for a subscription to The Dram Team’s subscription service, enjoying a 20 per cent discount on their first box.

Booking and prices

The virtual whisky tasting masterclass is priced at £39 for two or £64 including cheeses.
