Mark Thomson is the Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador to Scotland who’ll be hosting this exciting session. He will talk you through the history of the brand, whilst teaching what makes Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky so special. This live session will see him focus on The Experimental Series ( Fire & Cane and IPA ) as well as including the iconic 12 and 15 YO Glenfiddich.
About your Instructor: Mark Thomson has worked in hospitality, and particularly whisky for the past 20 years. Mark prides himself on approaching whisky education in an as open and fun way as possible.
With his family first introducing him to whisky at a young age (which happened to be Glenfiddich) he fell in love with all that whisky represents. Recently inducted as a Keeper of the Quaich and a Scotch Ambassador of the year, Mark is often in high demand to deliver his talks and share a dram.
On those rare moments when he isn’t working, you’ll find him atop a mountain running over the peaks of Scotland where he now lives after 16yrs in London.
We will be tasting the following during the session:
- Glenfiddich 12yo
- Glenfiddich 15yo
- Glenfiddich Fire & Cane
- Glenfiddich IPA
For equipment, guests would be recommended to have:
- Each of the Whiskies (if you don't have all 4 no need to worry!)
- Fever Tree Ginger Ale
- An Orange
- Chopping Board and Knife
- Ice cubes
- Room temperature bottled water
- Ideally a pipette or a teaspoon
- A Glencairn glass but a small wine glass can make a perfect substitute
- A highball glass but any tall slim glass would do
