We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an extremely limited and exclusive virtual Brora masterclass.
Led by both WhiskyFun.com creator and Brora/Clynelish enthusiast, Serge Valentin and fellow WhiskyFun.com contributor rare whisky expert, Angus MacRaild, they will share their invaluable expertise, insight and passion in this rare chance to taste five whiskies from the legendary closed Brora distillery.
This event is in celebration of some very exciting news we will be announcing soon in relation to Brora and our auctions - in addition, 25% of each ticket sale will be donated to Parkinson’s UK in memory of the late great whisky writer, Michael Jackson.
This event will take place on Thursday 15 April, at 7.30pm BST and is limited to only 25 spaces.
