On Thursday evening the World Traders hosted a virtual Whisky tasting organised by Freeman Nick Ravenhall whose company Atombrands supplied the whisky. There were 26 of us including two members of the Chartered Surveyors Company. Four 50cl bottles of whisky were delivered by courier to each of the attendees.

David Worthington of That Boutique-y Whisky Company gave us an excellent walk through the four whiskies, sharing stories from his past and the many tastings. He is fortunate to have a job where he has to drink whisky which he loves.

Sharing his many years of experience with whisky, how to smell and taste the delightful malts. After the formal tasting we had time for questions and chat between ourselves.

Dufftown, Linkwood, Teaninch and Auchroisk distilleries stories of their foundation and growth since the 1800’s. Each bottle has a purpose designed label one of which has Nick Raven hall in an All Black rugby shirt.

Each one of the labels had a special story to tell.

Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Thanks to Nick and Dave for a great time.
