The Jones Family Project’s restaurant pop up area is transforming into a retro travel agency offering guests whisk(e)y flights, touching down at some of the most coveted whisk(e)y destinations around the world. From Kentucky to Melbourne; Yamazaki to County Cork; the Scottish Highlands to Mt Komagatake #JonesFamilyAirways will take you on a flight of fancy to wherever you desire.
Check-in to the downstairs pop-up space and choose from flights that explore the various whiskies of America, Scotland & Ireland, Japan, and Asia & Oceania. Your flight attendants will guide you through the journey, helping you navigate your taste buds to understand the complexities and varieties of classic, innovative and lesser-known whiskies from around the globe.
Holiday package highlights include: Amrut Fusion, one of South India’s most popular whiskies with delicious notes of fresh fruit, vanilla and a smoky finish; Mitcher’s small-batch Bourbon, named after the oldest distillery in the USA, with sweet, fruity and spicy notes, packing in plenty of flavour; Japan’s Hibiki Harmony which uses a blend of Japanese malt and grain whiskies from Yamazaki/Hakushu/Chita, which has moreish and enticing notes of orange peel and white chocolate; while the Irish and Scottish tour includes Hedonism, a malt-free blended grain Scotch whisky from the relentlessly creative innovators at Compass Box alongside 12 year aged Redbreast and Chivas Regal and the smokey sweetness of Ailsa Bay.
Boarding passes range from £14 to £20 per flight and include tastings of four whiskies from each region.
Group flights for parties between 6-8 people can be booked via the reservation desk: [email protected] and there’s no hire charge for the area.
Keep an eye out for enhanced tours with #JonesFamilyAirways partners such as Compass Box’s exclusive tasting on 5th September that includes a special new release; a blind tasting of five great world whiskies on 26th September; and two whisky dinners in October and November that will see the Jones Family pair their great meats with the greatest whiskies of the world.
