World Whisky Day at Eden Mill reminds us of our love for whisky and how immersed we are in distilling. We are really excited to be raising a dram to @worldwhiskyday on the 20th May alongside Scotland and the greater whisky world.
Despite the long history and worldwide love for whisky, #worldwhiskyday was only founded in 2012 by Blair Bowman. A student at the time from Aberdeen, he realised that unlike other festivals such as World Gin Day, there had never officially been a day to celebrate the globally loved dram of whisky.
After claiming the domain, Blair has rallied support and celebration from distilleries, whisky bars, influential figures and whisky lovers worldwide.
World Whisky Day is now annually organised by the UK Drinks Magazine Hot Rum Cow. Blair acts as a whisky consultant as he continues his own ventures in Scotch whisky including; consultancy, judging at whisky competitions, tasting panels and releasing his debut book.
Interactive whisky tasting event
If you are a whisky connoisseur or someone who is content just to enjoy the occasional dram, here are a few ways you can get involved with the celebrations on World Whisky Day with Eden Mill.
We are hosting an interactive tutored tasting of our limited edition 2 Year Old Oak Aged Spirit collection. Two of our Distillers in Guardbridge will stream this session live on Eden Mill’s Facebook page at 5.30pm 20th May.
Share this unique tasting with your whisky loving friends. Don’t miss out on the experience just because you can’t physically be there. This virtual alternative will let you be part of our whisky tasting experience while watching and listening to our Distillers’ presentation from the comfort of your own home.
Experience one of Eden Mill’s guided Scottish lowland whisky distillery tours. Learn some of the secrets of how we craft our whisky blends. If you’re not local to the area, it’s a tour worth travelling for. You’ll start your whisky tour with a welcome drink and be introduced to the history of Eden Mill. This is followed by a viewing of the stills, production areas and cask warehouse. You’ll finish with a tutored tasting session of one of our three new make spirits. We’ll will also gift you an Eden Mill Glencairn whisky glass to take home.
