You don't have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy our fun and informative wine weekend this March!
Prices Starting at just £400.00 per person
Anyway we have a huge range of guests who stay with us at Eriska and their knowledge and experiences with Malt Whisky always varies but whether they be afficiandos or simply beginners- crossing the threshold of our Library Bar for the first time- it is certainly a topic which causes great discussion - always raises the passions and never curbs the enthusiasm.
and whether guests are simply looking for a favourite or wanting to try a wee dram for the first time we try to help them understand a bit about this essential part of Scottish life and allow them the opportunity to immerse themselves in the history and culture if they so wish. This ranges from allowing them to sit quietly and enjoy the dram by the fire or pontificate at the bar and compare notes with others but in the middle of the range is the vast majority who simply are intrigued by the history, enjoy the product and use their experiences to enhance their stays in this wonderful part of the world.
Many simply enjoy what they consume and, as they are not regular malt masters, are looking for ways to compare and contrast their experiences. So we always believe the best starting point is to try and form a base line so all malts get a "fair" chance to show! Therefore we thought it might be helpful to put down some simple guidelines as to how we recommend guests taste whisky in order to get the most out of the experiecne and enjoy the "water of life" to its best.
In addition to these simple steps we also have a tasting sheet and this allows guests who are intersted over their stay to sample a few malts and keep a record in order to allow them to compare and contrast over a few hours, days or even weeks. By structuring the tasting each time it helps formulate the reasons behind malt choices
