COMING SOON: THE WHISKY TASTING CLUB. WATCH THIS SPACE.

The site will be a one stop website for everything to do with whisky. We will have a forum, editorials, blogs, latest whisky news and a wealth of background information.

We are setting up a whisky tasting club where we send you samples of amazing whiskies from around the world. Each tasting will be themed and will have five double measures (5 CL), background information on each whisky and tasting notes by us. Cost will be £25+pp. No lock in period, no obligation, if you want to stop any time you can. Tasting new whisky is expensive, most bars and pubs have a poor range and buying a new bottle can be a costly mistake: we aim to give you access to a huge range of whiskies from every corner of the globe to help you to find new whiskies you love and to widen your horizons. We cant promise you will love them all, but we can promise you will enjoy the journey!

We aim to start the tasting club in September, but much of the other content will be live before then.

If you want to know more, be kept upto date on developments or have any suggestions, email us at help@thewhiskytastingclub.co.uk (Click Here). (no spam, we promise).

We are Dominic Roskow, Tony Bagnall, Michelle Harris and Pat Barrow. This site has grown out of Dominic's Norfolk Whisky Tastings. Over the last few years we have tasted an amazing range of whiskies. As an indicator of the whiskies you may expect, here are some we have had at our tastings (thanks a million to Susie Burlace for maintaining the list).
