London’s celebrated Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London will launch a luxury whisky masterclass: ‘Scarfes and Scotch: a walk through the world of Scotch whisky’. The unique experience will immerse guests in the world of whisky, with quintessential Scarfes twists and tweaks, for a memorable and educational journey through Scotland’s most iconic spirit. Hosted by resident Scot and whisky fanatic Craig Petrie, the interactive session will welcome everyone from whisky beginners to aficionados, with a bespoke experience suited to every level of expertise and knowledge.
Scarfes Bar is home to one of the most impressive whisky collections in the capital, housing over 400 whiskies including unique liquids and releases including rare bottles from ghost distilleries Port Ellen and Brora. The towering Whisky Wall that greets visitors as they enter the bar is bursting with glowing amber liquids from all over the world, putting the spirit front and centre at the luxurious bar. Visitors to the Whisky Masterclass will be invited to explore the cabinet as the first stop on their journey, to discover the diversity of the spirit - all whilst sipping on a delectable whisky cocktail to whet their appetites and get their learning juices flowing. This will be followed by a full induction into the world of Scotch whisky, including how it has been made using traditional methods for six centuries and how it has grown from humble beginnings to break national records, with an export value of over £40billion in 2018.
The journey takes off in full as guests learn about the five distinct whisky regions in bonnie Scotland over a traditional and delicious Black Pudding Scotch Egg. An open discussion about how the geography of distilleries can change the taste of liquids and why, will begin as guests are transported to their first region with an introduction to Speyside, via a welcome dram of Chivas 18, before heading down to the Lowlands of Campbelltown with an enticing sip of Auchentoshan Three Wood.
Classes accommodate up to 10 guests and will last approximately an hour and a half. They include a welcome whisky cocktail, 4 glasses of whisky and a delicious bar bite. Also, the guests will receive a 50ml bottle of Scarfes single malt whisky to take home.
